Colossians 2:2  “My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love; so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ”                     

    How do you stay connected to people in the church?  It is very easy to come to service every Sunday, worship God, get blessed by the teaching of the Word by Pastor, and then go home not really connected to anyone in the church.  According to this verse we are to be “encouraged in heart and united in love.” 
    In order to encourage each other there must be some communication and fellowship. The Message Bible says, “we are to be woven into a tapestry.”  That is really being connected when we allow ourselves to be knitted with other people into a tapestry. 
     We have times at church where we have meals or other activities in order to unite the church in fellowship.   Other ways of being connected to the body of New Life is praying for one another.   We have a directory available if there are people you do not know.  You can put a face to a prayer request or send a card for a birthday or anniversary.  Even sending an e-mail or message on facebook helps keep you connected to the people at New Life as we “encourage one another.” 
    You can start by coming to the baptismal service at the Adamsons tonight.  Encouage those who are being baptised. Get to know the person you sit next to in church.
