We are a people made for communion, the intentional commitment to presence, mutuality, and the deepening of our relationships. Historically at Ecclesia, we have uniquely done this by inviting brothers and sisters to enjoy time together at Astros games. This is a great opportunity to host a friend or neighbor, share your faith, and explore together what God is doing in your lives. To facilitate that space, we want to provide a ticket for you and a guest to attend an Astros Game at Minute Maid Park.
Pray about who you will invite. Ask God to give you a name. Perhaps someone whose story you want to know more fully. Perhaps a relationship that has been distant. Perhaps someone who could use a friend. Whom might you bless with a few hours of your time?
