What do you love to do with your free time? What does that have to do with God?
Have you ever thought about how what you love to do can intentionally intersect with your faith?
A lot, according to Fresh Expressions mission strategist Mitch Marcello. “I’ve met many who feel that they couldn’t or shouldn’t, explore how their Christian faith could impact the world outside the common ways we have lived out our faith. Sunday morning worship, mission trips, and Bible studies are familiar practices of the Christian faith. But somehow, weaving faith into passions and hobbies is seldom considered.”
Mitch goes on to say that “play” isn’t about being silly, it is “a way for us to connect with who God created us to be, we can start seeing how a church can form around it.
Now, you can learn how to your hobbies and passions can be a starting point for new—and fun—expressions of Church!
