2023 Ministry Theme
“Hearts of Compassion Moved to Action”
Our Church Ministry theme in this New Year is “Hearts of Compassion Moved to Action.” The Gospel writer Matthew said of Jesus: “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them” (Matthew 9:36). That word expresses a deep, heart-felt love that Jesus felt for hurting people. His compassion moved Him to action as He helped, healed, comforted, fed, and encouraged thousands of people. As followers of Jesus, He commands us to “love others as I have loved you.” Let us challenge ourselves in 2023 to be compassionate-minded Christians, and then to reach out in loving actions to help many people for Jesus’ sake this year!
