The “way to God” and the “truth of God” are subjects spanning many cultures, beliefs, and practices throughout documented human history. There are too many to count on one page; however, in Christian tradition and practice, our congregation has become a voice in the Framingham community of what we say it means to know and experience God through faith. In cooperation with the guidance of scripture, Holy Spirit, and church tradition and in encouraging one another, we strive to find our way to the salvation of God in our lives. One of the most striking lessons that Jesus taught and demonstrated is that when we welcome one another, we are quite literally welcoming God. The wealthy, the poor, the sick, the healthy, the powerful, the powerless, the popular, the out-casts, the young children, the old graybeards, and many more — Jesus demonstrated that when we welcome one another, we welcome God.
Jesus promised a Holy Spirit, a helper to guide our hearts after the resurrection. The Holy Spirit works mysteriously, nurturing our hearts to take the opportunities God makes available to us as we minister and mature in faith. Also, our Church tradition is a helpful guide and teacher, demonstrat-ing for us ways to apply the teaching and guidance of God to minister in the world we are entrusted to serve and protect. One day, Jesus heard the disciples talking about which among them was the greatest. He picked up the teachable moment, placed a child among them, and said, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all. The word last, esxatos in the Greek, means lowest, final, and uttermost. In short, to follow Jesus is to embrace all people.

On Sundays in October, we collected the World Mission Offering during worship time. Our participation gives us the opportunity to join the transformational work God is doing around the world through International Ministries’ 120+ global servants and 250+ global partners. God uses our participation not only to change lives internationally but also to deepen our own discipleship in Christ. We actively take part in what the Holy Spirit is doing to bring God’s kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you to all who supported this year's offering as $793 was generously given and once again helped us exceed our goal.
