On Saturday, August 18th, we held our third Quarterly Training event for 2018. This was a training for all New City Church Missional Communities. We had a crowd of people and it was a great morning of learning and sharing stories together!

As we met together we considered our new vertical relationship with God as Father, and we also worked to begin to realize our new horizontal relationships with other Believers. We share the same Father, so we must learn to relate as brothers and sisters. In light of the love we’ve experienced from our Father, the lives we live together should be deeply relational.

Many people think of church as a service you attend, a building with a steeple, or an organization within the community. Church is something you do some of the time. You “go” to church. But the biblical understanding of the church is very different. You don’t “go” to church—you “are” the church if you are a child of God by faith in Jesus. Church isn’t a service, a building, or an organization. It is a family. It is a community that shares life throughout the week in relationship with God as Father and one another as brothers and sisters.
