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 are the class options for March and April 2021:
- What Must I Do to be Saved? in meeting Room 3. During our lifetime, there is no other question whose answer is more important for us, given the eternal ramifications. However, even a cursory study of this subject may yield dozens of different responses. How can we know the way? Please join us as we go to the inspired word of God and seek out His will for us. We will cover topics in both the Old and New Testaments. "For the Lord redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in Him." Psalm 34. Facilitator: Ted Roybal.
- Fusion Class in Meeting Rooms 1 & 2 and lead by Mike Jones, Bill Estes, and others. This ongoing class "fuses" teachings from both the Old and New Testament, and bonds understanding of scripture with its application. Monthly themes connect the weekly lessons. The themes for March and April are the New Testament ministry of Jesus and the Old Testament deliverance of God's people from Egypt.
