A Gospel-Formed Community, Value 1 of 6:
Celebrating our Story.
One of our characteristics that HMC has stated we value is that “We are an Anabaptist-Mennonite Church.” We have also stated that we want to strengthen our identity as an Anabaptist-Mennonite church by offering classes and connecting more intentionally with other Mennonite groups.
How does this feel for you today?
What does being Mennonite mean to you?
What are the resources available to us that can enhance the value of our being Anabaptist/Mennonite?
How does identifying ourselves as Mennonite enhance our overall congregational identity?
How does it help us reach our vision of “Being Transformed by God to transform the world”?
Several key texts for Mennonites include 1 Corinthians 3:11 and Mark 1:14-20. After reading these, how are these texts speaking to Houston Mennonite today?Grace and Peace and Joy to you all today! Have fun!
In the comments, feel free to interact as much as you want with this post and with each other! As I said, I want to incorporate your thoughts into our worship January 18. But most of the benefit is in your interaction with each other!
