Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, Love All
At The Fellowship, we substitute consumption with compassion by practicing four simple but powerful counter cultural concepts each Advent season: worship fully, spend less, give more, love all. It is this compassion that has allowed The Fellowship to bless a variety of organizations both locally and globally.
2018 - Katy ServeFest
Most of us move through life so fast that the people around us look like trees walking about. We speed past need and fail to recognize hurt. Our desire is to partner with other churches in our community during Katy ServeFest to transform our community though practical acts of love and service and at the same time be intentional about having spiritual conversations. Dino Rizzo, author of the book Servolution: Starting a Church Revolution through Serving, used a term he called “peripheral compassion,” which is defined as the capacity to reach out and envelope the multitudes while noticing the tiniest need. The things our teams will do during Katy ServeFest will be the products of peripheral compassion: looking at our community with deeper insight and greater clarity. Henry David Thoreau wrote, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
