As you may or may not have heard, we will not be hosting any evening Gatherings on Sunday, February 3 because of the Super Bowl. We do this in order to remind ourselves that church is more than a service you attend, and to give everyone an opportunity to live on mission during the big game. So this Sunday, attend either our 9:00am or 11:15am Gathering at Devine Street, and then choose one of the following:
- HOST a Super Bowl party. The bible is clear that Christians should be the most hospitable people on earth in light of the fact that Jesus welcomed all of us into his family (Romans 12:13; Hebrews 13:2; 1 Peter 4:9; Romans 15:7). The Super Bowl is one of the easiest times of year to be hospitable, since so many people watch it already. Buy some good food and drinks, get some friends to come and do the same, turn on the TV, and invite people to your house for the game.
- GO to a Super Bowl party. Jesus was big on going to parties. He was in attendance in so many parties that he was known as the man who "came eating and drinking" with people. Imitate Jesus and go to a Superbowl party (preferably one you were actually invited to).
- THROW a Super Bowl party with us. For the past two years, we've helped our friends at Transitions throw a Super Bowl party for people in Columbia transitioning out of homelessness. If you have a servant heart, love meeting new people, and love partying, help us throw the party. We'll need people to help set-up, play games, get loud, and get to know the people there. Find out more and sign up to help here.
Whatever you do, don't attend our 5:00pm Gathering at Main Street or our 7:00pm Gathering at Devine Street, because you'll be alone.
