Love Your Church: 8 Great Things about Being a Church Member (Paperback)
God calls us to be devoted to one another in love (Romans 12:10). What does this look like for us today? How can we be the kind of church member who makes a real difference?
This timely and engaging book by Tony Merida explores what church is, why being part of it is exciting, and why it's worthy of our love and commitment. He sets out eight privileges and responsibilities of a church member: to belong, to welcome, to gather, to care, to serve, to honor, to witness and to send.
Whether you're new to your local church or have been attending for some time, this book will re-energize you with God's vision for the local church.
A discussion guide at the end of book makes Love Your Church a great resource for reading with other church members.
