The Student Ministry of Church at the Grove for the second year now has adopted Relay for Life as a point of connection in our local community. Tonight we get to be a part of something special and significant in celebrating life with cancer survivors. It is also a time to remember those that didn’t survive the potential deadly impact of cancer. It is an incredibly worthy cause to raise money for cancer research.
My favorite part is connecting with people I have never met and having conversations that potentially lead to talking about Jesus. In an event like this, so many people have either been directly or indirectly impacted by cancer. These people know how precious and fragile life on this earth can be. In this environment, the conversations are rich, deep and carry an eternal “beyond this world” perspective. This is perfect environment to have conversations that lead to sharing the hope found in Christ.
Our purpose at Church at the Grove is to lead people to follow Jesus and Make Disciples. We do that through creating Environments like our gathering on Sunday mornings, Encouraging relationships through our Community Groups, and doing things like Relay for Life that enable us to Start Discussions that lead to sharing Christ.
Go do something that helps you stay focused on things of an eternal nature. Go have a conversation that could lead to talking about Jesus!
I love being a part of a church that is involved in things like Relay for Life!
