Bedford United Methodist Church is excited to share a unique ministry, one that is new to our church.  It’s called Fresh Expressions. It is a means of reaching the many in our community who don’t go to church. Some who may be unaware of who Jesus truly is; they know the name but not the person.

 

Fresh Expressions,  simply put, it is an extension of your life in Christ, it is stepping outside of our church and helping to build Christ’s Kingdom here in Bedford. It’s meeting people where they are, having simple conversations, building relationships, learning what the people’s interests and needs are — all with the specific intention to share Christ with them as the opportunity presents itself. We know Him, we know the difference He has made in our lives and the lives of those sitting around us. The people outside of the church have the right to know Him too.

 

Fresh Expressions are based in many congregations across the country. Small groups of people are joining together and planning ways to reach these folks and getting together to bring “church” to them. “Church” as a group of interested people sharing time doing something they mutually enjoy and getting to know Christ.  It may be within a group kayaking; they take a trip down the river stopping at a spot to share a devotion and discussion. It could be a group at the gym meeting after a workout, or a biking or hiking group. The options are limitless. We are just in the beginning phase and are looking for interested people and input.  We would love to talk with you.
