My name is Pastor Matthew Thompson. I am local who grew up down the street from Winthrop in Brockton. Now I have the honor of serving the Lord, the people of Winthrop and all in the Holbrook area.
Currently we are a small and determined bunch to bring Jesus to the people. Our saying here at Winthrop is "Pointing to God-Reaching out to People." That is the standard we strive to live up to. We are imperfect people who serve a Perfect God.
In so many ways God is rebuilding us from the ground up. From the physical structure to our spiritual walk. He is helping us to become better children of God and spreading that love to our local community. We come not with judgment but with a humble spirit to show others the transformative spirit of having a relationship with God. For the spirit of Congregationalism is about relationship and connection which comes from this verse: "For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:20 NLT For this reason God wants us to gather together in His name, is so we can connect with Him and one another. Thus, the church isn't a building, it is the people. I hope you will come join us to connect with people where they are and bring hope to their lives. May we not just hear teachings on Sunday morning, but instead let the world know we belong to God because of the way we show love to people throughout the week.
For our God has given us the incredible privilege and gift of belonging to Jesus. And we are of infinite value to Him. He loves us with an everlasting love. He draws us with His loving kindness. And He wants to engage with our world through us. Let us therefore make the choice daily to allow ourselves to be available to God for however He may choose to use us.
“[For] you are a chosen race, A royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
