7/7/2019 Taking Turns for Mokjang/House Church Meetings

In the past, each shepherd would host mokjang meetings at his/her home, but going forward, we would like to take turns meeting at different people’s houses. This is not mandatory, and we can start by asking for volunteers. If there is are no volunteers, then mokjang meetings will continue in the shepherd’s house.

Reasons for taking turns--

1. The early church also took turns meeting at different houses

“…They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people” (Acts 2:46-47)

2. Taking turns prevents the shepherd from becoming burnt out. There are shepherds who prepare food for mokjang each week, and it’s not easy to continue to do that week after week. When the shepherds grow weary then it is natural for the whole mokjang to become weak. The members should try to help the shepherd from becoming weary.

3. It gives the opportunity for members to serve. When you serve, you receive joy, become passionate, and experience transformation. When you receive and never give, you remain a spiritual baby. When you begin to serve, you have a better understanding of your shepherds and an understanding of Jesus’ heart as well.

4. When you open up your house to others, you get a sense of being a family.

We are thankful for our shepherds who have been opening up their homes for mokjang meetings and have been doing it with joy and thanksgiving. Excluding the VIPs, we want to encourage all members to open up their home for mokjang meetings and as a result, the blessings of praise and prayer coming from one’s own home!
