When I was hungry ...

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 meeting on Belmont University's campus got together on a Wednesday night and collected money to put together sack lunches for our homeless friends.  Among the 27 students who were present that night, they were able to raise $270!  After the money had been raised, they shopped for the food and put together 100 food bags.  This past Sunday after church, they went over to Room in the Inn, a local shelter and recovery program, and delivered the meals.  Every single one of them would be given to someone who needed it.  It is great to see God working in the hearts of our people and then watching them come together to make a difference in the lives of our friends on the street.

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.
