Pastor Margaret ("Meg") Jackson Clark
Message from Meg
To all God's beloved in Greensboro who are called to be saints.
Grace to you and peace from God and our Lord Jesus Christ
(Romans l:7, adapted)
“It’s not about getting people in the pews; It’s about transforming the world for good in the name of Jesus Christ.”
When I heard those words at a church gathering a couple years ago, they gave me hope,
and reminded me of what is most important.
The ministry of Jesus Christ, not the institution of the church, is our primary call.
As Christians, we get to join God in whatever God is doing in our world!
It may be happening around the corner, down the street, across the ocean, or in our own living room.
God is at work in all those places, and invites us to join in transforming the world.
We might bring the healing touch of companionship or conversation.
We might supply clothing and comfort to children as far away as Liberia.
We might mentor a child at the school up the road.
We might be the body of Christ for someone in our neighborhood without family or church family.
The church building is mission central, the home office.
It is where we come to be replenished, nourished, renewed and sent back out.
As your pastor, it is my privilege to join God in equipping you for ministry through worship, education and prayer.
It is my joy to connect with you and join in God’s work here in Greensboro
and wherever else the Lord may send us to serve.
I look forward to getting to know you, whether you are a life-long member of this church
or a newcomer to the community. There is a place for you in our midst. God has work for us to do!
