In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus gave his disciples this charge.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
All disciples of Christ are expected to be about the business of carrying out this great commission, today.
The advent of COVID19 has certainly changed the process by which we reach others, in the interest of sharing with them, the Good News of Jesus Christ. Yet, the people of United, continue to strive to find ways to reach each other and others. This time of crisis lends a marvelous opportunity to use the changes brought into our lives to give more time to prayer, studying God's word, healing relationships, helping each other and others who need us, and strengthening the mission-mindedness of our congregation.
Although we have elected leaders to organize and direct our efforts, we are all called to joyfully engage in the witness that arises from participating in events we will prayerfully continue to plan and present to the congregation. Regardless of the means we need to use to connect with one another, the mission of the church can't, and won't, wait for a cure for the virus. Therefore, every member of our congregation must step up and be counted as a member of the Evangelism team.
