Broken Bread Ministries Kick Off
March 3rd, dinner was prepared and served to approximately 100 people from Brookhaven Plaza Apartments at the first Broken Bread Ministries event here in Bartlesville.
Jesus calls us out of our pews and to our feet in Mark 16:15 with the words: "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." Then, in 1 John 16:18, we are told: "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."
The vision for Broken Bread is to create a program where churches around the Bartlesville area will work together to go out into the underprivileged neighborhoods and feed residents both physically and spiritually. A meal will be prepared by a Sunday School class, Men's or Women's group, or various members or a church. Then, those same people or another church group would go into an area and serve that meal in the name of Jesus. For this program to grow and reach those in our community that are desperately searching for the Hope that we know as Jesus Christ, His people will need to step up and step out. All it takes is one person in the right place at the right time to change, perhaps even save, a life. Will you and/or your church be the next to take Hope and a meal to someone in need?
"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
James 2: 14-17
