Mark 12: 29-31 tells us to connect to God and our â€œneighborâ€ with love and an open heart. Indeed, our love and concern must extend to all living creatures, and to the earth itself, over which we have been given the responsibility to act as stewards (Gen: 2: 15). By participating in the Church service, by coming together for Cottage Prayers in our Area Prayer Groups, by extending our witness to those outside our Church, and by our concern for our environment, we will be connecting in love with God, our neighbours and the rest of Godâ€™s creation.
In Colossians 1: 10, Paul tells us â€œto lead a life worthy of the Lordâ€¦â€¦.bearing fruit in every good work and increasing (growing) in the knowledge of Godâ€. The various Organizations of Christ Church provide channels through which every member of the Church from tiny toddlers (in the Sunday School) to those in the evening of life (in the Golden Age Fellowship) can grow spiritually and become active participants in the witness of the Church. There are Organizations for the Youth, Young Couples and their families, Women, and for those with special abilities or interests there are opportunities in the Choir, the Almaya Fellowship, Ecological Forum and Medical Forum.
In Peter 1: 10 â€“ 11, we are told â€œAs each has received a gift, employ it one anotherâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..â€ with willing hands. Our service and witness is not confined to the Church and its organizations. Our hands reach out to those outside Christ Church through our support to our Outstations, various mission fields, and through such projects as Artificial Limb Project, the Poor Patients Aid Fund, Marriage Help Fund for indigent couples, and Housing Help for those desperately in need of a roof over their heads.
In Matthew 28: 19 â€“ 20, Jesus tells His disciples to â€œgoâ€¦â€¦.to all nationsâ€ with ready feet. It is our duty to witness to Christ among non-Christians in our city and even beyond. We have made a small beginning with our Food for the Needy Programme (started in 2006) and our City Mission Project, which we hope to launch soon.
