What to expect on a Sunday Morning...

 

Worship

Normally our services are thematic and revolve around one central truth grounded in Scripture that ties everything together. Although this requires a fair degree of forethought and planning, we always seek to remain open to God’s Spirit leading us in a different way. Therefore, we maintain a measure of flexibility and spontaneity.

Music

Our particular calling involves a contemporary style of music which we hope helps communicate Christ in a relevant way to our modern culture. This has been a common practice throughout history. For example, Martin Luther used various culturally familiar music styles in his hymns, and Handel’s Messiah was at first rejected as being too worldly and modern in style. This does not mean we do not value or use more traditional forms, just that we have an emphasis distinctive to our mission.

Messages

Our messages address relevant topics that relate to everyday life. However, they are also based clearly on the Scriptures -- normally from one particular passage, which is taken in its proper context and explained and applied in an understandable way. Many times, these messages are part of a broader series as we work through particular books of the Bible.

Art

Visuals, like movie clips, are often used in our services; not to entertain, but to help us appreciate how the Scriptures address real life. These forms serve to illustrate the sermon through beauty and truth. (Ezekiel, Jesus, and other biblical figures often used various forms to communicate God’s message.)

Greetings

Normally we have a time for greeting each other during the services, which is a current application of a practice that dates back to the early church. It reminds us that, in Scripture, public (or corporate) worship differs from private worship in that there is a horizontal (people-to-people) element, as well as a vertical (people-to-God) element.

Communion

We celebrate communion monthly in the Sunday Morning Services. We also have special services that include the Lord's Supper around Christmas and Easter.

Offering

We do not pass an offering plate or basket in order to avoid making our guests uncomfortable. Instead, we hope you will see this service as our gift to you. We invite those already committed to our ministry to place their offering in the offering box provided on their way in or out of the santuary.  

Dress

We believe God is more interested in the state of our hearts than what we wear. (Scripture never outlines a dress code). Therefore, we emphasize freedom, whether formal or very casual, as long as we all remain respectful to the Lord, and caring toward others.

Our Vision

To be a welcoming, Christ-centered church (Eom 12:5) dedicated to making disciples of Jesus Christ (Matt 28:19-20), testifying to the gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24), equipping every believer to mature towards the fullness of Christ (Eph 4:12-13) so that God alone is worshipped (Ex 20:3) and everyone is stirred up to love and good deeds (Heb 10:24), transforming Boone and beyond. (Acts 1:8)
