The Value of Small Churches in Small Communities

There have been some good articles come out lately that describe why we are in such an important position as a church.

This one (http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2013/september/why-we-need-small-towns.html) is not free to read online, but you can pick up a copy of the Christianity Today magazine at the church or from the pastor (just ask). I strongly recommend it.

This one (http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2013/july/rethinking-small-churches-6-questions-to-ask-about-your.html) describes healthy ways and reasons to be a small church, as well as unhealthy ways. A good read.

Jesus gave the church some tremendous tasks, and we small churches often feel we are too small to spread his salvation in the world. But we can remember what Jonathan said, “Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.” (1 Samuel 14:6)
