How does a Fresh Expression begin? It begins with our relationship with Christ. As Christ forgives our sins, and we invite Him into our lives, an incredible change occurs. Little by little, he replaces us with Him. Galatians 5:22-23, gives us a beautiful picture of what that looks like in our lives. The evidence of His Spirit is “love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

 

How do we walk with Him? How do we take God into our community? Christ’s life within us is our resource for the journey. We engage those we come across, with a simple hello, a casual conversation, and a smile. As we walk away, ask God to bless them, to make them aware of Him, to show them their need of salvation. Also, ask Him what you can do to help make that happen.

 

Fresh Expressions is a means of bringing folks together for a meal, a hike, an exercise class, or any other means. The goal is to help them see that God is indeed relevant in their lives and that He wants a relationship with them and their families. Ultimately, sharing His plan to bring them together with Him forever and providing a safe place to worship and share God’s word.

We are hoping to build a group willing to work together, reaching the community for Christ. Please contact Lana Allen, Small Group Coordinator at smallgroups@bedfordumc.org
