Kids in the City

Posted by Dave Clayton on

If you have been a part of Ethos Church for any amount of time, you have probably discovered there is much more to our church than simply gathering for worship on Sundays. In fact, we believe our church is at its very best when we aren't just gathered as the people of God, but sent out as the people of God. Each month, our house churches look for tangible ways to bless the people of Nashville through service. I'd like to take a couple of minutes to tell you about some of the incredible ways God is using our house churches to Awaken the Movement Jesus began years ago.

One of our house churches has a huge heart for kids living in several of the rough neighborhoods throughout downtown Nashville. Over the last several months they have been partnering with Y.E.S., a local non-profit whose mission is to provide holistic care for children and their families. Our house church has begun to see that being a consistent presence in the life of these kids can make a world of difference. From making crafts, to playing sports, to simply listening to kids that are wanting to talk -- one house church is making a significant impact in the next generation.

This is just one small example of how GOD is using our house churches to forcefully advance his Kingdom right here in Nashville. I don't share this to brag on us or to brag on you. I share this so that we may celebrate how God is at work among us. I pray that God will give us opportunities to serve and that we'll be passionate about using our lives and gifts to make his name great. I pray that as God continues to opens doors for us to serve, that we will joyfully walk through them as we seek to Love God, Love People, and Awaken a Movement.
