Inside and outside
At Christos, we highly value feeding on scripture and enjoying one another. But we also try to focus outside ourselves, to love those who don't know Christ or don't worship with us. Why?
- We want to impact people's lives
- Want want to avoid a sick form of Christianity that is only internally focused
- Loving outsiders is a critical part of knowing Christ
Agape is the word in the original language of the New Testament for love. More than a noun or a feeling, it is a verb... an action. Our efforts at Christos to serve used to be called the "Service Well." But we have put a lot of work over the last several months into re-thinking how we love, and we are renaming our efforts "Agape" or "Agape Love." We've put these thoughts into a booklet (one in Spanish & one in English). You can pick up a free copy from the library shelves outside the sanctuary or click below to download an e-copy. The booklet answers 4 questions:
- What is the relationship between impact and love?
- What is a significant danger of trying to love?
- What is the best motive for love?
- How can we practically love?
The booklets have space for your responses and are intended as the beginning of a dialog. We'd love to know your thoughts!
What is this page?
It is a partial list of opportunities for loving that we have at Christos. When you first come here, all opportunities are displayed. You can filter them with the options on the left. As soon as you click a filter box, the results will update (no need to reload the page). To get more information about any of them, including how to get involved, click on the title.
What if I have an idea for a new opportunity?
Great! The list here depends a lot on your input! Send your ideas or any other questions and thoughts to Jonathan via email.
