“Be Opened” at Hephatha Lutheran Church.
To be a Christian is to be in community -when you believe in Jesus, when you are baptized in water and in the Spirit, you are made a part of the community of God’s family throughout the ages and around the world. God designed it this way so that we could together become more complete in our faith as we rejoice and suffer, celebrate and mourn, confess our need for Jesus and receive the gift of His love. It’s not about “going to church”, but that all followers of Jesus “are the church” -and the church is incomplete without you! To that end, at Hephatha we gather together regularly to worship God, admit our need for His love, receive His grace, hear teaching from His Word, and to be encouraged in friendships with other followers of Jesus.
