Discipleship is a radical invitation to follow Jesus. We are to be a people who live not by our will, but by the will of God. This means we are going to have to get moving. Just as Jesus lived for the sake of others, we are called to go into all the world and serve. We have to follow Jesus into the dark places; we have to learn from Jesus how to act mercifully and love our neighbor. The vision of GO is to be the hands, feet, and heart of God to our neighbors. We believe discipleship calls us out of passivity and sends us out into the world.
One component of GO at The Branch is called GO Time. We meet the third Saturday of each month to serve the needs of our neighbors. During GO Time, we gather together to work on projects that help those in our community as well as people all over the world. This, however, is not just a time to do a service project together. We believe GO Time is one way we are joining with God's mission. We believe the meals we prepare, dresses we sew, and relationships we make is kingdom work. It is one way God is making things on earth as they are in heaven.
We hope you will join us at the next GO Time. We will meet at the Farmers Branch Campus in the Family Life Center and the Vista Ridge Campus in the lobby on the third Saturday of the month.
