The West Court Church Family:
One Story Shaped by Many
The story that has been told on the west side of Flint has certainly had its ups-and-downs. West Court Church is no different. The story in the world is influenced by powers that drain the life of the families and individuals. We have experienced that too! The truth is, everyone everywhere struggles to maintain balance. In the Church, it is done intentionally by honoring the "lesser" member (1 Corinthians 12:23) in realizing that life is not a race to be won. We are all destined to die (Hebrews 9:27), but we are called to live together:
"For just as in one body we have many members, and not all the members serve the same function, so we who are many are one body in Christ, and individually we are members who belong to one another" (Romans 12:4-5).
That's why at West Court Church our vision for influencing our community begins with US. If we are to engage west Flint, we must engage each other! If we will ever bring hope to the community, we must make sure each other is living with hope! If we intend others to live better stories, then we have to have testimonies of better lives ourselves! If we will partner with others to do this together, it must be reflected within the house of the Lord!
This means we are not of our own. Your story is my story and my story is your story, because that's how it becomes (Hi)story!
