I have been blessed to have been a part of Bois D’Arc UMC for the majority of my life. The aspect of the congregation that I most appreciate is that we have a long and colorful history of not limiting God. By that, I mean, we don’t put qualifiers on God’s love or who is worthy of it. We recognize and celebrate the concepts of discussion, questioning, even doubt in our faith journeys.
The Church is designed to be the body of Christ here on Earth, we have all always heard that, but in Bois D’Arc that phrase manifests itself through love in motion. Motion involving backpack programs, staffing homeless shelters, donations to food pantries and most importantly loving our neighbors (and not limiting who is our neighbor).
I currently drive out to Bois D’Arc from Springfield to be a part of worship service that speaks to me, challenges me, makes me thinks, and many times makes me uncomfortable. Please join us in worship as we all work on figuring out the enormity of God’s love and his commands to us.
