We are the University Ministry of Bacon Heights. We may not be the largest or flashiest university ministry in town, but we are real folks trying hard to live an authentic Christian life in a world that often rewards and values other things.
We truly believe our motto of "First Things First." Being a mathetes, a disciplined follower of Jesus, isn't about being perfect, and it certainly isn't about pretending life isn't difficult. We all come to Jesus as we are. We realize, sometimes, some real life immediate needs must be met before we can even get still enough to see Jesus. That's what we mean by 'first things first.' We want to be there with each other, and you, in a real way, to confront the life issues that keep us up at night and pop into our heads every time we try to get quiet.
We could tell you the
truth and say "trust Jesus" or "spend some time in prayer,"
but what if you don't know, or trust, Jesus yet? What if you don't know
how to pray? First things first. Let's spend some time talking
through that right-now problem and then get
to how to pray and learning who Jesus is. Trusting Him is still the answer and still the truth,
but you have to know Him first. First things first.
