Living, Leading and Developing Laity Fruitfulness

Laity Seeking Fruitfulness
“Just as our heavenly Father in Christ came to our aid, so we ought freely to help those around us, both materially and spiritually. We should, as it were, become Christs to one another, that Christ may be seen in all. We are called Christians not because Christ is absent from us, but because he dwells in us. He transfigures us in his image, that we may act towards others as he acts.”-
Martin Luther, 1483-1546

We are called to engage in God’s work in the church as well as in the world. The North Texas Conference provides a wide range of opportunities for those wishing to serve.
