We try to be an easy church to figure out. We find this simple diagram helpful. We gather to worship God. In our corporate worship times, we preach the word, sing, practice baptism and communion, and enjoy times of fellowship together.
While what we do on Sunday morning in our corporate service is vitally important, we believe that is not all there is to being a church! That is why we also seek to reach in. We use our Equipping Hour at 9:00 to really dig into the Word at a deeper level. We study topics ranging from equipping classes (marriage, parenting, finances) to Bible knowledge (book studies), to theological topics. We try to create a well-balanced diet.
Another imporant aspect of church is reaching in through relationships. We offer five Small Groups around the area. We are simply trying to provide a structure for gospel community to take place. These groups discuss application of the sermon that is preached on Sunday.
The mission is never complete, until Jesus returns. We are a church that wants to reach out in the most practical of ways through personal evangelism in everyday life, through intentional efforts and through our partnerships with those who share the gospel around the world.
