As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you. - Jesus (John 20:21)
If you've trusted Jesus, there's a really good chance he sought and found you through someone else. He calls us all to be that for others. Found people Find people.
But how? We gotta stop resorting to a Sunday Morning Invite as our first go-to move. Good preaching & splashy music isn't usually going to attract people in Sonoma County (especially younger generations, most of whom have no experience with church). At PCC, we're persuaded that the best way to introduce people to the love of Jesus isn't something new but something radically old.
And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their foods with glad and generous hearts...they enjoyed the favor of all the people in the city. And the Lord added to their number - A historical description of what the church used to be like (Acts 2:46-47)
FAMS (a.k.a missional families) are attempts to live out the above. Small teams of 3-5 persons, inviting friends and neighbors around the dinner table, and sharing the love of God slowly, deliberately and in relationship as we share life together - like a family.
We've quietly launched a few FAMs. Our hope is that every person who comes along the journey with PCC will eventually join a FAM (in their own time and at God's prompting).
Do you think often about how to love your neighbors? Are you someone who thinks on the ways Jesus might help others around you? Perhaps starting or joining a FAM team is right for you. Contact Ryan O for more information.
