InvitationStuart Jones Wherever Jesus went, people tried to get close to Him. Parents brought their little children. People in need of healing struggled to touch Him. Crowds gathered close to hear Him teach. People believed being close to Jesus would make things better. Our purpose as a church is to lead people closer to Jesus. This is a need we all have in common--regardless of our age, lifestyle, social status, time in the church or time out of the church. Find ways you can draw closer to Jesus. Reach out and take someone with you on the journey.
