Vineyard at the Border – Brownsville Trip

LOVE.

“‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

Our church’s Vineyard Border Project is gearing up for another trip down to Brownsville on November 22-24th, 2019.  There are 700-1000 men, women and children waiting at the bridge in Matamoras, Mexico, for court dates leading to possible entrance into the United States. These immigrants need food, supplies, clean drinking water, clean clothes as well as provisions for good hygiene.  Our job, this time around, is to prepare dinner for 600 the night of November 23rd, help distribute and serve food, then be a part of the sidewalk school on the morning of the 24th.

Please pray about your role in this project of doing justice NOW, being merciful NOW, and walking humbly NOW.  To be Jesus-y is to always show love in ways that can be felt by those who are in need.  Thomas Merton says, “Our job is to love without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy.”  

If you can join us, please call or text Pat O’Shea as soon as possible at 832-633-4893.

The Kingdom of God + Immigrants

The Kingdom of God + Immigrants

The issue of immigration is one of the most divisive issues in American politics. This sermon is an invitation to consider how we treat issues from the perspective of the ministry of Jesus and his announcement of the kingdom of God.

Scripture References: Ephesians 2:11-13, Leviticus 19:33-34, Luke 4:18-19

From Series: "The Kingdom + ..."

For Kingdomtide 2019 we are exploring the dynamic nature of the kingdom of God and what it means for different areas of life. The kingdom of God was the central message of Jesus. He continued announced and demonstrated the kingdom. What is this all about? What does this mean for us today? How do we experience the reality of God's kingdom in our life?
