Last Sunday, NewSong teacher John Peatfield preached from the Parable of the Vine and Parable of the Mustard Seed to describe and define Kingdom-driven community. John reminded us first that, "The Church exists for those that are not yet part of it," reminding us of our need to be constantly inclusive, and second that, "a tree is known by the fruit it produces." Are you "on mission" and are you producing results that prove it?
