CURRENT MESSAGE SERIES: Growing A Spiritual Life
Spirituality is a hot topic today. Many people are exploring all kinds of sources of spirituality. We are all spiritual beings. Yet, spiritual searches can lead us into some rather dangerous, if not bizarre places. Some are merely seeking their own inner self in their quest. Others find it acceptable to kill in the name of spirituality. How are we ever to know the true quest of spiritual things?
Believe it or not, the Bible has given us a clear indication of a healthy spiritual life. Once you discover the source of healthy spiritual living, you can grow a healthy spiritual life. Join us on a journey this Spring entitled, “Growing A Spiritual Life”. With God’s help in your life, it will be more than the grass and trees that are bursting with life!
As we continue to seek God's will for our church, we are excited to begin increasing the ministries we currently offer, while also trying to plan for the future of our existing ministries. The church leadership would like your feedback and ideas for The Gathering. Please prayerfully consider your responses while completing this survey, and remember that we are seeking God's direction for our community. We welcome your honest feedback and ideas on how we can truly be a place where grace and people meet. Your feedback is confidential - we are not asking for your name on the survey, and no questions are mandatory. Fill in only the responses you have prayerfully considered. Thank you in advance for your time,
The Ministry Team
|CONNECTION First we want to help people to Connect with God on an authentic basis. This is not about religious conformity or plastic clichés. No, we want people…people far from God, and people who have known Him for decades to move in close for a real, personal, and intimate relationship with Him.||
Next, we want to encourage and equip people to move into a Community with Others. We need each other. Yet, for past hurts, broken trust, or personal issues, we tend to keep others at a distance. Real community, though, is the place that God has created for us to experience the journey of life. It is here that we share each other’s burdens, victories, and love.
The third leg of our mission is to share Compassion with our Community. We cannot be obedient to our calling to follow Jesus Christ until we have engaged in genuine action and compassion for the least, the last, and the lost. So, we will seek to be the hands, feet, mouth, ears, and heart of Jesus to a hurting world around us. We must show them that there is a loving Savior who loves them and cares deeply for them.
