You are invited to come join us for friendship and fellowship on our Annual Family & Friends Day. Our service is held annually on the 4th Sunday in March.

We know that families and friends of our members do not all attend the same church. So, this is our way, our time to show appreciation to our congregation, their family, friends and the community. This is a time that we can all come together in one meeting place from far and near, under the same roof, to be reminded that if we are not biologically connected, we are connected Spiritually. Where we can fellowship in love, God's Agape love for each other and experience the friendship that we all can have.

Psalms 127:1 says "Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." Proverbs 18:24 says "A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."

We are in the Family of God and are Friends of God though the sacrifice that Jesus Christ His Son made for each of us.

"For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!" Romans 5:10 (NIV)

Family & Friends Day could actually be looked at like having an "Open House". Open House is used in various settings such as real estate where a house is open to various people "Callers" who are interested in taking a tour and holding inspection, but there are no restrictions on who can come to the Open House. It's like a "Meet and Greet" if you will.

Colossians 3:12-14 says "As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. ( NRSV)

Paul understood that it's not easy for everyone to get along, especially in families. We are all linked together by either biologicial blood or by the blood of Jesus Christ and we have to have, we need to have the "clothing" that Paul speaks of in Colossians.

Just like an "Open House" we open the doors of Mountain View and welcome family and friends to come together, not to inspect, but to expect receiving the Word of God - expect a blessing. Not to take a "tour" of Mountain View, but journey with us as we all go a tour together through the Word of God.
