MISSION CAPSULES: What is house church ministry? The Rev. David Webber says it is people who meet in small gatherings week after week to share worship, scripture, prayer, a meal and the sacrament of communion. "But I think it is what comes out of these little gatherings that makes our Lord smile." he says. "It's the member that stays for weeks by the bedside of a person dying from cancer, and then weeps with his widow. It's the hours spent serving children's programs in the community. It's standing by a neighbour who has been abused. It's weeping and praying with someone who wouldn't be caught dead in a church,. It's all this and so much more." Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support this unique house church ministry in the Cariboo region of B.C.
