I want to take a moment to extend a very warm welcome to everyone who’s visiting us for the first time this morning. Whether you’re just having a look, or are searching out for a place to worship, we’re delighted to have you here.
To give you some idea of what we’re all about, I’ll quickly sketch some of our foundational beliefs.
Our vision says this: Getting and growing people in relationship with Jesus.
So firstly, we’re all about Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was who he said he was, the Son of God who came and died for our sins. So if this is your first time in church, we hope that get to know Him as we do, because He’s truly what life is all about for us!
Secondly we’re all about people. Every person who walks through our doors is important to us, so if you ever feel like just another number, we’re doing something wrong and I give you permission to tell me about it.
As a group of God’s people we care about you and your family and we’re here not only to feed you spiritually, but to help in any way we can. We love doing it and it’s why we exist!
Thirdly, we’re all about relationships. We hope to cultivate and grow meaningful and positive relationships between another, but also go further by getting and growing in relationship with God. Christianity is all about a Person, and less about a set of rules. That means that we exist to be in a relationship with Someone, that’s Jesus, and merely not to obey a religion.
That’s us in a nutshell.
I want to encourage you to fill out one of our connect cards that you’ll find in the bulletin you got when you came in. Just write your name and e-mail or phone number on there, since we’d love to stay in touch with you and let you know about some exciting upcoming events we’re planning for the next few months.
Also, if you’ve got a specific prayer request, please take the courage to write it down on that same piece of paper (there’s a space for it), and put it in the prayer box at the back of this room when you leave.
We’d love to pray for you, but if you don’t ask us, there’s nothing for us to pray for, so I encourage you to keep us in your prayers.
Connecting People to Christ.
…that people would experience a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church through praising, worshipping, growing, and serving.
We believe that worship doesn’t just happen at church on the weekend, but rather in our everyday lifestyle. On the weekends, we encourage you to engage in one of our services. If you have children, we have Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry environments designed specifically for their age group. Outside of the weekends, we encourage you to read your Bible, pray daily, and be involved with others through GROW groups.
There are many ways for our youth to grow in your journey with Jesus and others.
