Our hearts desire is to see our diverse Seward neighborhood treasuring God through Jesus Christ.
What is it like to be a guest at Seward Church?
Imagine the warmth of joining a group of close friends for dinner. Imagine a blustery, winter evening, arriving at their place. As you move towards the door, you can see the silhouette of your friends inside, illumined by gold light. Someone spots you walking up, and rushes to get the door from you, a friendly smile progressively filling their face. They dart to grab your coat, saying, “Come in, come in!” And as you kick snow from your boots, your nose is greeted with the smell of a wonderful home-cooked meal. That’s the kind of hospitality that’s pursued here in the Seward Church community. An environment in which we all seek to live life on life. Young and old, married and single, and kids and adults alike; all enjoying a meal and service together.
It’s a picture that closely resembles the early church. In the church gatherings of the first century, food and warm family-like fellowship was central to the time they spent together. They called their church gatherings, “love feasts,” where they would break bread in fellowship, sing, and sit under the apostle’s teaching. We strive to follow suit.
