- Missonal Community FAQ
by Adam Ribbeck, Discipleship Minister
There’s a lot of people around us today who are asking spiritual questions, seeking truth and meaning, and in a sense they are pursuing God. They are our neighbors, our co-workers, our friends and our family members.
What they are not doing, however, is they aren’t waking up on Sunday morning saying “Ya know, I really need a sermon today, I think I’ll go to church!” That’s just not in their frame of reference anymore. There are still those for whom Sunday morning worship will be the “front door” of the church; but many people need a new doorway into the Christian community.
So how do we reach them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
The missional community is a group of friends who are committed to living a “sent” lifestyle. Friends who live out their “sentness” together, inviting people who are unsure about Christianity to join them along the way. Over the last four months, the Missional Community Pilot Program has been learning about how to live in these groups, and how to launch them this Spring.
In this space, I’ll be writing some more about missional communities so that you can catch the vision and join us as we launch them at St. Philip’s. If you’re curious or you want to get involved, get in touch with me at email@example.com or on my cell, 512-784-1127.

- News from St. Phil’s Kids
Last Sunday was amazing in The Tree House! During both Sunday School hours, the children assembled 60 “Blessings Bags” for the less fortunate. We talked about Matthew 22:37-39 “He replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself,” which is the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke.
The Blessing Bags include bottled water, peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers, granola bars, a pair of socks, a comb and toothbrush, and a small first aid kit. The bags are to be kept in the car and shared with someone less fortunate. The kids all took bags and also shared them with the adult Sunday School classes in the EMC. Thank you to the many people who donated items and to Ginnie Colbert, Mark Wood and Deanna Feil who helped Sunday morning.
