Meet Pastor Mike Mitchum
I enjoy being the pastor of Neighborhood Church. I moved here in 1990 because I liked what I saw in this community. There is racial and economic diversity here. There is also a long history of welcoming all types of people in the church and in the community. I like that history.
Because of the love we have received, it is natural to want to share that with our neighborhood. Here at CNC we attempt to love our neighbors by reaching beyond the walls of the church and showing Christ’s love.
I hope you will feel at home here!
COMING THIS SUNDAY
Sunday's Message: What If My Friend Won't Listen To Me?
Theme: This Sunday, May 26, will be the final sermon in the miniseries about shining the light of truth on sin. I have addressed several good questions that we have about this subject and today I will attempt to answer the last one. The question is, “Isn’t it the job of the pastor and elders to confront sin in the congregation?” The Bible has some interesting things to say about this. Essentially, we are to enlist the aid of friends to help us if we have a friend who is sinning - after we have talked to her ourselves. If she refuses to listen, we can ask one or two friends to go with us. This morning we will see how this practice could revolutionize the testimony of the church as a holy and caring community.
