Church in a Different way

Have you found it more difficult to connect with church since the pandemic began? Or maybe you've always had difficulty figuring how to connect your faith with the church communities around you. Here in the"Unfinished" community, we believe in taking the journey of faith together, in ways that are easier to manage amidst the craziness of our lives.

 

24/7 Fellowship

Our community isn't just a bunch of people who happen to be from the same town; our community is made up of people all around the world. While our church does have a physical location, most of our community fellowship happens when we come together as a community on our Discord server, discussing our faith journeys whenever we can, in a variety of different ways. This means that you can participate in the life of the community at any time, day or night, from the comfort of your computer, phone, or whatever.  And, because we're an intentionally online-focused community, we're open to absolutely anyone, even if you're involved in a local community somewhere else. Everyone is welcome here!

Many Ways to Worship!

With members all over the world, we have a lot of different ways to worship. We have our twice-monthly worship service held at Ashiya Christian Church, where our community here in Japan comes together in dialogue to learn about God's word. We also have multiple ways of engaging in worship and study on our Discord server (including running conversations about faith, life, and just about anything else), and regular times of teaching and discussion shared through our podcast stream and YouTube channel. However you need to connect with God in your life, we can find a way to help!

A Little Help with Life

Want to practice speaking English or Japanese? Do you have a bunch of extra food to share with people near you? Do you just have some spare time, and want to share that with lonely folks? Do you just want to share some good news with people, or introduce someone to a hobby you have? Through our community, you can find ways to explore practical help and connection with people around the world!

Back to Basics, Episode 69: The End of Genesis (Genesis 48, 49, and 50)

Welcome to "Back to Basics," where Pastor Don and Courtney Fraley explore the Bible, one story at a time, starting at the beginning, and working our way forward until we either get bored or run out of Bible! Tune in every week for a brief exploration of the next chapter in that thrilling and oft-misunderstood story, the Bible! At last we have arrived, at this our final, nice, episode of Back to Basics; Genesis Edition, and we're taking our last shot at Chapters 48-50 simultaneously! Is it true that "The Lord of the Rings" movies stole their idea of the repetitive ending from the book of Genesis? Was Jacob actually the first mummy? Since Joseph was definitely turned into a mummy, is it possible that some Victorian Englishman ate him during that whole "mummy jerky" phase? And if the evangelical cultists are right about the whole issue of "blood magic," does that mean that somewhere in England this man's descendants live on completely unaware that they have inherited phenomenal Biblical mummy powers? Can we fund our church by selling the movie rights to this idea and, if so, can we get Brendan Frasier attached? Check out today's episode to find out about all that and more! __________ LINKS: This video is also available as a podcast at anchor.fm/pastorkuma, or by searching for "Unfinished Community" wherever you get your podcasts; if that's more your thing!
