Fellowship among people who have been forgiven and redeemed through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a wonder to experience and to behold. People who have never previously met experience this fellowship due to the common bond of salvation and the subsequent adoption into God’s family. Followers of Christ who have known one another for some time enter into deeper fellowship by serving our Lord together.
I have been reminded of the profound joy of fellowship this week as we join with University Church in Beaver Creek, Ohio in the construction of their new building. There are quite a few people working here this week who are not a part of the Valley Church family but people, from churches like ours, who have benefited from the gracious service of Builders for Christ. The team from Chesapeake, Virginia is here. This is the team that made our new mailboxes and provided some new cabinets and upgraded others during our project last year. It has been an unspeakable joy to reconnect and enjoy that fellowship that takes place among Christian brothers and sisters. Some of us also have reconnected with a husband and wife who formerly lived in Fond du Lac but are now members of the church where we are working
As followers of Jesus Christ, we have much in common.
