We are trying to keep it simple, focus on relationships with each other and with the Lord. We are trying to be “missional,” meaning we’re trying to focus less with having a formal missions program and more on the realization we each are living out the mission God has for us in our lives at this time in this place that we find ourselves. We will hopefully push, urge, challenge, and help one another, but we are primarily seeking to love the Lord our God with all heart, soul, mind, and strength first and let Him determine the rest.
We try to take to heart the need to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We want to think creatively and personally about reaching out to our community and doing what Jesus said was most important; loving God and loving others.
Sunday mornings we gather in order to be sent. We gather to be grounded in our faith in Jesus by learning to go into all the world (Matthew 28:20), to Love God and love others (Deut 6:5; Mark 12:30,31), to go out and train and teach what Jesus says is the way to life (Matthew 28:20; John 14:6), and to reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight (James 1:27). We know that gathering to Jesus also means being sent into the families we live with, the people we work with, and the world we live in.
