What We Do
Come as you are; and join us as we learn to live out the words and works of Jesus
What We're Doing
We believe that the essence of Christianity is relationship, with God and each other, in Christ. That being said, we do have weekend services and homegroups; as well as various ministries operating in our church.
Our basic format: we begin with a time of worship, usually around a half-hour. Then we have announcements, followed by a coffee break. Our teaching time is another half-hour or so, sometimes followed by what we call Ministry Time. This time is an opportunity for people to receive prayer; to offer prayer, and to minister to each other and be ministered to by the Holy Spirit. On the last Sunday of each month, we celebrate the Lord's Supper together and have a community pot-luck lunch together.
Our Sunday service starts at 10h10. This time is reflective of John 10:10, where Jesus promises Abundant Life in Himself. This service is family friendly, with Sunday School and a Nursery.
For children: Kindergarten to Grade Seven
We are committed to:
Creating a safe and fun learning environment
Loving children as Jesus loves
Introducing children to biblical values
Motivating children to participate in the church community
All of our children's volunteers have had a criminal record check done. Our Sunday School is offered for children Kindergarten to Grade Seven. It is a time of fun; but is always centered on Jesus: learning of Him and encouraging our young ones to enjoy a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We do ask, however, that parents come and get their children as soon as the main service is over so that the volunteers can get back to their families. Thank you.
As part of our ministry to families we offer a safe, loving nursery for infants and toddlers. We want to give Moms and Dads an opportunity to enjoy the sermons, as well as providing a nurturing environment for children. Our nursery is safely outfitted with age appropriate toys, change table (in womens' bathroom...because of space...) and couch for nursing moms. We incorporate prayer, singing, play and stories in our programs. All our volunteers have had a criminal record check and participate in training sessions. The nursery is closed prior to the sermon, as we like to encourage families to worship together. We ask parents to drop their children off at the nursery after the coffee break and to pick them up once the sermon is over. Please do let the nursery volunteer know if your child has any allergies or special needs. A nursery volunteer will let you know if your child requires a diaper change during the sermon.
Our Home Group operates on the idea that growing to maturity is impossible without the Holy Spirit working through relationships in the Body of Christ. Real relationship building - with each other and with God - requires smaller gatherings. It is not always possible to interact on a deeper level with people on Sunday morning; and so we believe that Home Groups are a very intentional way to foster healthy community and lasting relationships. Our basic structure is to worship God together, visit with each other and talk about what God is doing in us and through us. For the study portion of our Home Group, we like to reflect on the past weekend's sermons, so that we can fully engage the sermon all week.
