As we continue in this study, we are going to take a few weeks for some parenthetical thoughts about the mission of the church and what we need to be doing as a result. Today, I want to focus on each individual’s responsibility in this process of uniting to one another. Next week, Pastor John O’Connor will be sharing with us from a student ministry perspective about the mission of the church and the role that students and parents will need to play in carrying out this mission. And then in two weeks, Pastor Ron Fields will address the same issue from the perspective of our ministry to seniors, as well as our pastoral care ministry.
We will be looking again at Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus this week. Last week, we studied from Ephesians 2. Today, we will focus our attention on the last half of Ephesians 3 and the first part of Ephesians 4.
