Larry & Lindsey Mayberry shared their concepts of Community Ministries with us January 10th at Cornerstone Baptist Church. At least 90 people were present as they shared their own experiences and ideas of “Love Loud” from their church in Astoria, Queens, New York.
They also shared the reasoning behind what and how they are loving their community (Jeremiah 29:7). How as Christians we need to be transformed (Roman 12:2) and live intentionally to meet our neighbors and be a benefit to our community. We are to be good stewards of our influence. That means loving others without expecting them to respond the way we want or be like us. They shared how they learned to look at people differently and to serve them. That type of love has impacted many of the people they have met and drawn them to Christ and/ or to a better relationship with Christians.
