Sept 25th Worship: Going to Serve

1) What is going on this Sunday (September 25th)?
This Sunday, we are gathering at Pinewood Elementary School (Seneca Pl. 28210) at 10am to worship through service.

2) Why?

While the Queens Sports Complex is being used, we wanted to embody our mission of going one step further out into mission and service in Jesus Christ’s name.

3) Are there any Waypoint small groups or meetings still going on at Queens Sports Complex that day?

We will NOT have access to the Sports Complex this day. Explorers and Bible studies will resume October 2nd.

4) What do I do if I have young children?
Bring them. Let them see all the action and participate where they can. We will have some balls and games to entertain those a little more restless.

5) What projects are we doing?

We will be tackling three projects–

  1. Putting together treats and gifts for the teachers’ break room. As one pastor encouraged us, by loving on the staff of a school you have the opportunity to change his/her heart for the day, which can influence 30 students.
  2. We will be putting together 10 bookcases for the teachers.
  3. We will also be doing light landscaping and debris removal to help beautify the school.

6) What do I bring? What do I wear?

Come as casual as you would feel comfortable. We will have water for everyone, but it could be warm being outside for the hour.

If you have some trash bags and work gloves that would be helpful for the landscaping. Philips head screwdrivers and hammers would be helpful for the bookcase build. Any treats or trinkets for the teachers would be helpful for the goodie-bags. You can contact Jim Hardin (landscaping) if you want more details on what to bring.

7) How long will it take?

We plan on gathering from 10-11.

8) Can I invite friends?
Yes! This is a great chance to invite others who may or may not be interested in going to listen to a sermon, but would rather see a sermon embodied

Permission Granted: Unleashing the Laity

One of ECO’s core values is that we move from being clergy-centered to unleashing the laity.  However, if you unleash my lazy lap-dog pug, she does not go anywhere. Therefore, at Waypoint we want to be training ourselves so that, like a velodrome rider, we can run the race God has planned for us.  This happens when we join the body of Christ and “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

This Summer we studied Ephesians 4:11-12 to explore different functions and methods God’s Holy Spirit equips us to build up His body of faith.

We noticed that:

  • Apostles initiate a new vision.
  • Prophets correct and challenge the status quo.
  • Evangelist connect people to the movement.
  • Shepherds care for the people.
  • Teachers make the vision practical.

The challenge is that often we would rather have someone do the hard work of our faith on our behalf.   Read more
