Community Engagement is the lifelong calling of every Jesus follower. As we love our community and start to live life with people and make disciples, this creates pockets of the kingdom of God coming to earth. All throughout the Bible, God tells us to love the oppressed: the orphan, widow, refugee, and the poor. The marginalized in society are largely forgotten about and neglected in the world's eyes, but God has not forgotten about them (Leviticus 19:9-10, 33-34; Deuteronomy 15:7; 24:17-21, 27:19; Psalm 68:5; 146; Proverbs 31:8-9; Isaiah 1:17; 10:1-2; 25:4; 58:6-7; 61:1; Jeremiah 5:28; 7:5-7; 22:3, 16; Zechariah 7:10; Matthew 25:31-46; Luke 4:18). He is already moving in our communities and so our responsibility is to join in wherever the Spirit of God is moving and bring shalom into our communities. Below are some ministries that Forest Baptist Church has decided to embrace as to where God is moving in the Newburg community.
