From the first days of the church, the gathering was - and still is - the most well-known image of the church. The writer of Hebrews shared God's focus on the gathering with us when he wrote, "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another..."
When we gather together to worship, there are distinct elements not experienced when a person worships individually. There is a power and joy of spirit as we join together in singing a hymn. There is the collective understanding of God's grace as we share the Lord's Supper together. There is a blessing in being united in our belief in a God that loves us. And there, is a special delight in being a diverse group of people who love and care for one another.
As you grow in the Worship area, excellent growth areas are joining the Prayer Group and the attending a Bible Study Class. Both meet on Sunday morning at 10:05 between the worship gatherings. Read more below:
The Prayer Group meets between the Sunday morning worship gatherings and is open to anyone who wants to pray with us or request prayer. The prayer time is always introduced by insightful scriptures to bring us closer to our Heavenly Father.
Prayer requests also come up during the week so we also distribute prayer requests electronically. If you would like to submit a request yourself or be notified on requests as they come in during the week, submit the form below:
The Bible teaches that we will be transformed by the "renewal" of our minds. Our Bible classes are a place where we come together in fellowship to share in a study of Scripture so that we may be transformed in this way and grow together in faith and love.
Bible classes meet on Sunday mornings between worship gatherings from 10:05 to 10:35am. Here is the current class options:
- Living Jesus in Meeting Rooms 1 & 2 and lead by Dave Jenkins and Colin Petty. This class is based on video presentations on the Sermon on the Mount by Abilene Christian University professor Randy Harris. You will be encouraged in your faith, challenged to think about scripture more deeply and even be entertained by Randy's presentation style and content.
- Book of James in Meeting Room 3. The Young Adult Pathfinders (ages 17-30 year olds) group is engaged in this study.
