What we are able to do together through faith

This past Sunday Liz Evans shared an offering mediation about what we can do together in faith.

Evans, in her meditation, shared:

"And I am always reminded that individual salvation is free and grace is freely granted to individuals but Christian ministry is much more effective and goes much farther when carried out by WE, the people of Christ!

When we pool our gifts and resources, they multiply to the glory of God; when we work together, we can hold each other accountable, share our stories, learn and grow in the Holy Spirit and become the moving force of action God intends us to be."
