21st Century Church in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, Invites Community to Feast

The 126 year old Lansdowne Baptist Church, in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, hosts their annual "Feasting With Friends" dinner from 1 to 3 PM on Saturday April 12, 2014. Roughly 100 people, many suffering from food insecurity issues, will dine with church members tomorrow, sharing fellowship and coming to understand a little better the two greatest Christian commandments, love God and love neighbors. Local stores have contributed generously to this dinner, which we greatly appreciate. It is marvelous to see what we can accomplish when we work together.

This is part of what it means to be the church in the new century. The focus is on supporting the community, showing people who are struggling that Christianity has much to offer them. In the months and years ahead, this church will be supporting its community in a great many ways, becoming a true community church as God is calling us to be. It is an exciting adventure in which we are eager to participate, bringing light, love, and good news to our community with our sleeves rolled up, ready to work side by side with our neighbors to make life better.

I for one am excited to see what comes next ...
