Because God is who He says He is — He is transcendent and above yet He is also among us — we can know that His word and promises are true. With that, there is an invitation for us to lay down our sense of control, our restlessness, and our identities not rooted in Him and receive His rest.
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.
