Christian Fellowship

My former church where God saved me and where I grew in my walk with Christ recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. My current church is a church plant sent out by my former church.  We hope to, by God’s grace, be one grounded in Christ-centered teaching and fellowship.

Below is a C.S. Lewis quote shared on my former church’s Facebook page.

“In friendship. . . we think we have chosen our peers.  In reality, a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another. . . the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting–any of these chances might have kept us apart.  But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking, no chances.  A secret master of ceremonies has been at work.  Christ, who said to the disciples, “You have not chosen me but I have chosen you,” can truly say to every group of Christian friends, “You have not chosen one another, but I have chosen you for one another.”  The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out.  It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”
— C.S. Lewis
