Damian's Invitation to Church
Come as you are. YOU are welcome here...!
Damian Sage is a six year old, fifth generation congregant of Blissville Church of the Brethren, in rural Plymouth,
Indiana. He was inspired to draw the picture you see on the front of this flyer after speaking to the congregation
one Sunday morning about his desire to reach out to the community and invite everyone to Blissville Church who
does not have a church home.
Damian wants to reach out to all the children in the area to tell them about God and His Son Jesus, who died on
the cross for our sins. He said he also wanted to reach out to their families because, "How else would the children
get to the church?"
His desire is to invite everyone to our church to let them know our doors and our hearts are open and to say, "YOU
are welcome here."
To Damian, the cross within the circle speaks of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins, with the circle representing
God's everlasting love for you and me. (John 3:16, Jeremiah 31:3)
He said the gold heart to him represents, "The Love of God's Spirit."
The waves signify the Holy Spirit flowing over us with the waves of His peace and love. The Holy Spirit encourages
us to gently grow in and through Him. (Psalm 42:7-8)
At Blissvile Church, we strive to be the "hands and feet" of Christ Jesus and to show His love to all who grace our
doors. To God, it doesn't matter where you have been. What matters to Him is where you are going, through Jesus
Christ our Lord.
We invite you to come and be a part of our family of God at Blissville Church of the Brethren. Our doors and our
hearts are open to you here.
Come as you are....YOU are welcome here.
