It’s been a year since the beginning of Church for The Highlands’ First public worship service. There are so many things I love about our church and those who give their time, energy and passion to serve those in The Highland Neighborhood.
Someone asked me to define our church this weekend and the best definition would be missional. Our mission is to be the hands nad feet of Jesus to our neighbors here.
Kandy Flint brought a great sign for our children’s area that says, “Christ has no hands but ours.” That is a great reminder of the challenge we have as believers to bless the world around us with God’s amazing grace.
We are a diverse congregation. People of different backgrounds, colors, political persuasions and perspectives make up our church. Everyone is truly welcome and I love that. It’s what I think Heaven will be like.
We are festive and celebratory. Not just every church participates in the Mardi Gras Parade, but our krewe did. It was a day I will never forget. It is obvious that we have a serious mission but we also have a total blast in the process.
It seems impossible that we have done CFTH for a year. It has flown. I glance back with great gratitude for all I have seen God do and forward with deep anticipation for what will happen in the years to come.
