12. OWN OUR CHURCH

OWN OUR CHURCH. The work of the church isn’t defined by pastors and staff alone; it comes from each member actively participating in the life of Jesus Christ.a Claim ownership of FPCM’s mission, programs, and property. Each is an expression of how God is working among us! Support others. Be informed. Volunteer for a new role. Live like you’re the church—because you are!b

a All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it. (1 Corinthians 12: 27)

b This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad. (1 Corinthians 12: 26)
