Hope in a time of crisis
Rod and Norma Schmucker of Hope for the Broken congregation in Los Fresnos, Texas have discovered a new way to connect with their community. It is a great example of how God is moving even in these days of social distancing.
Rod writes, “Our church (Hope For The Broken) like most others went online. It wasn’t a complete service, just a sermon. We did this for the first-time on Sunday, March 22. We are a small congregation, and quite frankly, we’re tickled if we have 20 folks gathering for our Sunday worship. So I did the sermon live on Facebook last week and all Glory and Praise to God, we had 207 views: 10 times our normal exposure! Now, I know there are all kinds of caveats that go with that- not everybody watched the whole thing, probably some novelty in watching me online, etc., etc. Nonetheless, 187 people heard about God that might not have heard it any other way! The church is called to share the Gospel Message…I’m beginning to understand… by ANY way that reaches people.”
We would like to hear YOUR stories of hope and God’s unexpected ways of showing up. Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and share the Good News! And feel free to join Rod and Norma Sundays at 10:00 AM Central Time on Facebook at Hope for the Broken a Mennonite Church.Posted on April 1, 2020 in News
