Serving Our City: Where We've Been & Where We're Going
God has always called His people to care for the poor and marginalized. As a people freed from slavery by God, God’s people have a mandate to go and do likewise: free, serve, protect, care, and defend. All out of the mercy that been shown to us by God. As a church, we have tried to follow this call in our city of New Haven — from the ivory tower to the blighted block. This has been foundational to us as a church: seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. (Jeremiah 29:7). Yet in the pandemic, we saw this foundation crack as many ways we served our city closed their doors. We also struggled to get back in the habit of serving those around us after hunkering down in our homes. As we start a series focusing on God’s call for us to love the poor and marginalized, come join us for a dinner where we reflect on what God has done through us as a church for and with our city. We need your insight and prayers to help us hear from God what’s next. Join us!
