A Place to Tell Your Story
“But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings.”
A Way to Live Life
It was in early 2017 that we started meeting as a church in Freeport. The Village Community Center was available for Sunday Evening services. We officially started the first Sunday of May 2017.
Consequently, The Gathering Place of Freeport was born. Every Sunday afternoon since, we set up the chairs and equipment, we Gather together for a while, we sing a few worship songs, we study the Bible, we have a class for small children, and then we put it all away. Then we stand around and visit and enjoy the refreshment that the folks brought in for the meeting. Every Sunday is a blessing to us all.
Since those days we have continued to grow. Folks and families are attending services regularly. We have a few that meet for midweek bible study every Wednesday evening. Some of the ladies meet on Wednesday morning for a study too.
It is not really all that complicated. Jesus gave us a commandment. John reminds us of it in his epistle, “And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.” (1 John 3:23 NKJV)
It makes us wonder what would happen in our towns if folks would just believe what God has said about His Son, and what would happen if we all would work hard at loving one another, our neighbors? The church should be a safe place for anyone to attend and feel loved by God and His people.
Luke 10:25-37, Lev 19
