the big picture
In this section of our website, you can view some of the things we're involved in locally. Specifically, we want to live out the prayer of Jesus in Matthew 6. He was teaching his followers how to pray and part of his model prayer was "on earth as it is in Heaven." It's a reflection of the Jewish concept of Shalom. Shalom means complete, perfect and full. When God created everything, it was perfect. Sin disconnected us from God's perfect creation though. The connection was broken. In Jesus, we get to be reconnected to the Shalom of God. So, whenever we see something being made right through Jesus, we are experiencing "on earth as it is in Heaven."
In light of that, we desire to look around and ask "Where are the broken places where we can bring Jesus?"
