The Commons Enters Into Covenant!
What we now call TrueCity grew out of a shared conviction and a shared dream—a conviction that churches have a unique role to play in seeing transformation come to their neighbourhoods and this city. A dream of churches connecting in ways that allow them to learn from each other and collaborate so that they grow stronger as local congregations even as they bless their neighbourhoods and this city. It is a dream of partnership in the gospel. (Read more about TrueCity History here.)
On Sunday, November 23rd 2014, members of TrueCity churches gathered with The Commons to celebrate their decision to enter into covenant with the TrueCity movement!
We heard stories about how The Commons & TrueCity have intersected in the past. As each person shared their story or encouragement for the people of The Commons, they lit a candle and added alongside the others on the table, symbolizing how we shine brighter when we work together.
As we worshipped together, it was a powerful reminder that no matter how different all our unique little communities are, we are all still part of the same kingdom of God.
Thank you to The Commons for being such a gracious (and super fun!) host, and thank you to all those who came out to show their support!
