As I stare out of my window I can see a huge oak tree in my neighbour’s garden. Its roots are unseen, but they will run long and deep to be able to grow to the size it has.

The Leadership Team and Trustees have been thinking a lot about trees lately and what we as a church and as individuals are rooted in and, in turn, how that affects how we grow and develop.

Paul in his prayer for the Ephesians said,
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”
Ephesians 3: 17-18

We want to be rooted in the love of Jesus, fed by God’s Word and filled with the Holy Spirit. We want Elmwood to grow its roots deep as its branches grow out.

We will be sharing more about the picture God has given us at the Members Meeting on Monday 3 July.
