17 Apr We are #UnitedFOR
Hey everyone! I’m Leah, and as Tim shared at our first Reimagine Church Night, I’m going to be leading Community Impact for United. For those of you who were at the Reimagine Church night, it was great to meet you. I loved seeing so many people gather together to hear and celebrate the vision of United. It made me even more excited to be a part of United and what God is doing in Owings Mills!
If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, checked out the Reimagine Church Night, or picked up one of our new t-shirts, chances are you’ve probably seen this hashtag: #UnitedFOR. A lot of people have been asking questions about it, so I thought I’d share a bit about what #UnitedFOR means!
More often than not, the church is known for what it’s against. We want to be known for what we are FOR. On Easter we celebrate a Savior who is FOR us – who conquered death, and offers us life! Jesus came FOR everybody, so we want to be FOR everybody too. That’s what #UnitedFOR means: United is FOR…Owings Mills, for families, for schools, for refugees, for the poor, for widows, for orphans, for you, for everybody.
Before we have a location or service times, we want to show up in the community! There are a lot of awesome organizations doing incredible work – we want to partner with those organizations, jump in, and say “How can we help you? How can we be FOR you?”
What does this look like practically?
How can you be #UnitedFOR?
- Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, share our #UnitedFOR posts, and use the hashtag when you’re out in the community
- Adopt a school, business, or public organization and buy them a box of Dunkin Donuts. We can give you a #UnitedFOR card to attach and write a small note that thanks them for serving the community
- Check out the website and come to our Reimagine Church Night, May 7, to hear about our next #UnitedFOR initiative
