We are not engaged in the practice of merely getting people to sit in chairs for an hour. We believe that the gospel changes people, and that as you spend time with us you will seek opportunities to grow more deeply.
Our Community Groups are the front line of discipleship, where people engage in real spiritual community and are not afraid to say difficult things in order to aid spiritual growth. These groups also engage in community service at their own direction, taking care to be a benefit to the place where they live. Group leaders are discipled directly by their pastor, and are trusted to be spiritual leaders within their own group.
We believe that discipleship begins in the home, and our ministry is structured to equip and support parents in leading their children toward Jesus. Our Sunday morning children’s ministry cares for kids from nursery through 5th grade, providing a safe and fun environment that teaches from the Bible. All volunteers that work with kids are background checked and trained.
Every week, children receive an age-appropriate version of the same sermon being taught to the adults. They also join the main service in the big room for worship through song, so that they begin to see adult worship from an early age. We also provide a follow-up resource so that parents can discuss the teaching with their children during the week.
If you are serving during one of our Sunday services and also have children involved in the children’s ministry, your kids are welcome to attend our “breakfast club” group during the 10:30am service. This creates a place for the children of volunteers to have fun and learn together rather than have to simply repeat the same class again, and allows parents to serve as well as be taught.
On Sunday morning, grades 6-12 meet with the adults in the big room for teaching, worship, and service opportunities. On Sunday afternoons, these students gather at in the Big Room for their own meeting at 4 pm. Students look at how the gospel affects their lives, learn about Jesus, and build friendships with one another as well as with their mentor leaders.
Our service teams provide practical ways to engage with our church family. Service requires time, and can sometimes be difficult, but doing hard things for good reasons is extremely rewarding.
