We will be learning about what Jesus means when He says, “Come follow me,” as He invited His first disciples and as He invites us. What does it mean to follow Jesus? And where will He lead us? And what does Jesus mean when He states, “I will build my Church and the gates of Hell will not prevail?” And what does the Church have to do with me, what do I have to do with the Church? What’s the point of the Church and why should I care? Great questions indeed, I’m glad you are asking them. Oh maybe you haven’t asked these out loud, but many of us wonder. In Canada, church attendance is in trouble and one organization predicted that in the next 10 years as many as 9000 churches will close in Canada. Oh my! But the Church remains Jesus’ “Plan A,” we as Christians gathering together with Jesus to have an impact on our City and on this World – together. There is no Plan B. I believe that Jesus is very active in building His Church, let’s get on board!
So, welcome, let’s explore together what Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, says about growing in relationship with Him and His Church.
