Sometimes, people wonder about the present-day role of the religious community. Others question as to whether or not their stewardship is solely for show, or for themselves and their "captive" audience (otherwise known as their congregation).
Thankfully, there are a number of places of worship whose reach extends beyond the boundaries of their building or core audience. This weekend, Divinity Church International, through their G Phi G ministry, is making a visible showing that is more than just a show; it is an effort to engage the community and provide a measure of stewardship and outreach in their community.
On Saturday, March 23rd, at 5:30pm, a talent showcase is taking place (at 711 Davis Road in Lawrenceville). Artisans ranging from music and other creative art forms are sharing their time and talents in a grounded and focused manner; this sets the stage for the 7:30pm service which uses the vehicle of song to serve as a means of witnessing and testimony.
However, the spiritual showcase doesn't end on Saturday.
On Sunday, March 24th, starting at 11am, the "Take the Streets" rally is taking place (at 1 Micromeritics Dr in Norcross). Trinity Chapel's Pastor Drew and Ruth Guerrier are providing encouraging words and a timely message. Combined with spiritually grounded music and fellowship, members and attendees are actually going out in the immediate and surrounding communities to share their message of encouragement, hope, and faith to others.
Active stewardship and ministry is the focus of the weekend's events. Where some may "play", the members of Divinity Church International take sincerely and seriously their call to worship, along with their commitment to serve. This weekend's events provide an example of the kinds of programs they provide in serving and providing stewardship to their community.
If you have no idea of what G Phi G really means, then consider attending this weekend's events and be a pro-active part of engaging the community.
