Sabbath Sunday, simply put, is our cultural philosophy on rest. Rest in today’s modern culture, especially related to modern church paradigms, seems next to impossible. Most churches operate within business frameworks with employees, staff and volunteers operating at maximum capacity in their roles in order to make Sunday’s gathering as precise, excellent and intentional as possible.
Although the heart behind this motive is positive, it lacks the very heart of what it means to function and operate as a disciple outside the four walls. The brick-and-mortar philosophy of Sunday church has blurred the line on the idea of true rest and here at Kingdom Impact, we are intentional to bring this back.
So how does this apply to our culture? Well, for every six weeks we work to prepare, cultivate and prune, we rest on the seventh! Yep, that’s right. We actually rest. So no church at all? Well, not necessarily, but our philosophy is that we value our volunteers and staff and understand that spending time with family and friends can be lost in today’s fast-paced life!
Genesis 2:2-3 says, “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.” We also provide opportunity for our team to serve and reach out to our communities in our time off! Whatever God places on your hearts, we value that time and opportunity!
