WELCOME!

THE BLESSING OF GATHERING.  What a blessing it is to have you join in worship on this first Sunday of Advent.  Thank you!

We are thankful for those who stepped up to serve by decorating our campus to celebrate our Savior’s birth.  We are also so thankful for the tremendous “Thank Offering” response last Sunday (see the STEWARDSHIP UPDATE).

If you are new to our Free Church fellowship, YOU are an answer to prayer.  Yes…we’ve been praying you would come, as we together make the Lord Jesus Christ a priority in our daily lives.

Please use the Connect Card as your first step to become a part of this wonderful, remarkable group of Jesus’ disciples.

Free Church Communities

Sundays, 9:30 AM | You Belong Here

Free Church Communities are groups that highly value relationships and engaging in God’s Word. In these communities, people are known, loved and cared for, and they get to know love and care for others. It’s a place of encouragement and teaching, of serving and being served, of having fun with each other and carrying each other’s burdens. In Free Church Communities we get to experience Jesus through others, and be Jesus to others. We are the church being the church (Acts 2:42-47).

Free Church Communities are primarily based on age/life stage, but those are guides with blurry lines to help you find your community. You’ll find an open door and welcoming smiles in whatever community you find yourself. Fore more information, visit the Welcome Center.

INTERIM UPDATE

Should anyone be wondering, “What are we doing during this interim period?  What are we out to discover?”

Churches and Christians in them often do many various things without actually asking “Why?” and “To what end?”  Without clear answers to those questions, ministry tasks just multiply, without much alignment to what the Lord Jesus wants that church to accomplish.

Will Mancini offers this insight with something called The Clarity Funnel (cf. Church Unique, p.59).

 

X      X      X      X      X      X      X     All of your “can dos”

                           X        Your one “must do”

 

PRAY!  Ask the Lord to give us clarity on our “must dos” in effective, kingdom ministry in the future.
