What Do You Need?

We have been exploring what it means to be a missional church in our current worship series, Mission: Possible.  Basically, being missional means to help people in need and to introduce them to Jesus.  Light of Christ was founded as a missions church.  Helping others in the name of Christ is in our DNA.

Two questions are important:

1. Who is hurting that we can help?
2. Who is not being reached that we can reach?

The Bible teaches us to help people from our own backyard to those all around the world.  Since God planted us in the Ballantyne community, the Light of Christ leaders and I have been researching the needs of the people in the shadow of the church (zip code 28277).  Demographic studies are helping us to identify some of the critical needs in our neighborhood.  We would also like to hear from you. 

For those living in the area, you will have the opportunity on Sunday 9/26 to fill out a brief anonymous pulse point questionnaire about the concerns in your everyday life.  This will help the church leadership prayerfully seek God's direction for the missional focus of Light of Christ in 2011 and beyond. 

If you live elsewhere and would like to let us know what's going on in your life, feel free to post a reply to the blog.

What are the concerns in your life right now?
