‘We Are One’ to unify church body

Many believers misplace unity in the church. Instead of comparing churches and judging congregations, I Corinthians 12:27 asserts that “The church is one body” ? one body that meets in different places. This idea of unity among churches has a chance to be rediscovered through an event called “We Are One.”

Northpark Community Church will host “We Are One,” which begins at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 5. In an effort to help satisfy the needs of the Community Food Bank, canned food will be collected upon arrival. The night will feature worship and fellowship produced by Ryan Townsend, college pastor at Northpark, FC junior Tyler Duerr and senior Andrew Rurik as well as the creator of the event, Josh Ansiel, a senior at Buchanan High School.

“‘We Are One’ is essentially a dream come true,” Duerr said. “The vision that is We Are One will no longer be a vision, but a reality. And seeing that vision become a reality is unlike any other: impacting the community and worshiping God.”

‘We Are One’ began as the brainchild of Ansiel, who took action to help out the Community Food Bank when he saw a need. Amid economic deprivation, he came up with an idea to unify churches in the Fresno/Clovis area.

“I decided along with a few friends to organize We Are One because I wanted to help the community and also use my blessings to help others,” Ansiel said.

The combination of worship and service fit in with the motive of unity to the night’s directors.

“It’s worshipping through song, but also we’re taking action by helping the community,” Duerr said. “We all belong to different churches and different denominations, but we all exist for the same purpose: to further God’s kingdom.”
