Imagine a place where you and your family experience all that God intended when he created us for each other. What would that kind of place look like? We believe it looks like the four phrases of our vision above.
Being a follower of Christ is all about relationships-- a relationship with God, and relationships with others. The New Testament is full of word pictures and commands that teach us the importance of community. The phrase solo-Christian is a contradiction in the minds of the authors of the New Testament.
The meaning of that word is deeper than any dictionary can classify. It implies warmth and belonging. Various rooms summon their own emotions and suggest their own activities.The bonds of a church community are also deeper than words, and have much in common with the idea of family. So, when we describe our plans for fellowship, discipleship, and life giving community it is appropriate to use the rooms of a home to symbolize the design of each areas. What follows describes four "rooms" that link to the goals of our vision statement above.Our desire is that you find yourself at home among the people here. We hope you have been warmly greeted on the Front Porch, but before too long, you make your way to the Great Room, and that all of us would make regular visits to the Kitchen.
A front porch suggests meeting new friends, sipping lemonade together, and welcoming family home. Our goal is an environment where everyone is warmly cared for.
All Church Activities: Summer BBQ's, Potlucks, Valentine's Banquet... things to which you feel comfortable inviting friends. Most every month we have some all church activity that brings the whole family together. In the summer time we shoot for twice a month out on the water. These activities always give us an opportunity to make new friends and catch up with those we haven't talked to in a while.
In the family room we are able to let down our guard and be ourselves with a few people we trust. These people rejoice with us when we rejoice, grieve with us when we grieve, and have earned the right to challenge us to be all that God desires.
If you are like my family, all rooms lead to the kitchen. That is what it is supposed to be like in the kingdom of God as well. The kitchen is a place to serve. Jesus made it clear that when we save our lives for ourselves it slips through our fingers, but when we give our lives away in service to him and others we find real life. God intends for you to be a minister and there are many opportunities both inside and outside the walls of the church.
