His Mission

Dear NRHC Family,

This past Sunday we celebrated baptism—we were able to visibly see five lives that have been forever changed by the Gospel. That is why we exist as a church! And one of the ways we can have more opportunities to see more lives changed by the Gospel is through living on mission with Jesus in our everyday lives. Salvation belongs to the Lord, but He has graciously given us the opportunity to join in His mission of making disciples. God has uniquely placed each of us in specific places where we have spheres of influence: our family, neighborhood, work, hobbies, and more. 

My prayer is that many of you will be the ones baptizing your family members, neighbors, coworkers, and friends in the coming years. And as you have that visual image in your mind, remember that it can start with a simple conversation, an invite, or a meal together—anything that we can do to intentionally invest in building relationships. 

There are over 70,000 people in Rock Hill alone, and more than 50,000 of those are not followers or Jesus or connected to a local church. This is startling, but also presents an incredible opportunity. In Luke 10:2 Jesus said, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." I pray that WE would be those laborers that Jesus was talking about.  

One of the many ways we can live on mission is through serving others in our community. If you were one of the 250 people who participated in City Serve, thank you so, so much. It was a fantastic weekend! If you didn't see this video on Sunday morning, please take a minute to check it out.

One Life at a Time,
Andrew
