When you think about your life and the things God has done for you, does your heart respond appropriately to God’s work? Pray God would help you to have a heart with a vertical focus that responds in thanksgiving and praise.
Worship services and special events are the primary ways the church family gathers our hearts together. Coming together like this reveals the beauty and diversity of God's children. No two people are exactly the same! And when we gather our hearts to praise Him or simply have a good time, there is room for everybody!
Life Bible Studies and Milestones are our main vehicles for growing our souls closer to God. They provide a place for us to explore the beauty and mystery of God's Word. These smaller settings also open the door for discussion with others as we seek to apply what we read in the Bible to our daily lives with friends to walk through it with you!
A soul growing closer to God simply cannot contain itself. Eventually, it will need to find a release. It will need something to do with the abundant love, grace, life, peace, joy, hope, mercy, forgiveness, redemption, well … you get the idea … that it's received from the Creator of the Universe. Missions and volunteering are just two such outlets.
