For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ (Ephesians 2:8-10).

We care for each other, for the city of Groningen and surroundings, and for the wider world.

And so we pray for each other, for the places where we live, and for global concerns, because offering it all to God in prayer changes hearts (ours and others) and opens us to His comfort and wisdom. But we also ask His guidance to show us ways to serve, to comfort those in need, to alleviate suffering, and to challenge unjust structures. Prayer always brings peace, but can also give purpose. (Philippians 4:6-9)
