As a family of believers, we are intentional about making sure that our members and regular attendees are supported in their practical, spiritual, and emotional needs. No one should face the challenges and crisis of life alone.
At Open Arms we have taken to heart Jesus New Commandment: Jesus said, "Love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34 If we are going to practically live out Jesus' command then we need to be connected.
It's difficult to actively love a person sitting next to us in worship. We need to get together with them. We need to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. This happens naturally when we spend time together on a regular basis. We laugh. We share. We gather around the Word. We pray. We serve one another wherever needed. We love like Jesus loved.
In this sinful world, we are constantly attacked by situations which may feel beyond our control, but are not beyond the control of our Almighty Father! What is needed now are volunteers to support this ministry. With a large enough pool or helpers to draw from, few will not be called upon too frequently, and the support will be a shared effort.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
