House Church

Right now, we as a church are in the midst of transition—we even are blessed to have a Transitional Pastor.  .  However, the House Church ministry will provide care to our congregation.  We are told a gazillion times in scripture to “love one another”.  Sometimes it’s hard to actually “love one another” in big groups—heck, it’s a challenge to learn one another’s names.  In House Church we will be small groups who, ideally, will do the work of loving one another well. 

Our mission statement says:  To Know Jesus as Savior and Lord and to make Him Known.  The vision for House Church is to create a space for this to happen:  Connecting with God, Loving One another, and Building up the church …like roots that provide connection and stability to the tree. 

Read Acts 2:42-47.  This was the early church.  Their priority was: 

  • Study:  they were devoted to the apostles’ teaching—the pure word found in the bible.
  • Fellowship:  they met together in homes and shared their lives and resources.  They pursued healthy relationships based on honesty.
  • Eating:  They broke bread together (meals & the Lord’s Supper)
  • Prayer:  they prayed together, they worshipped together and praised God.

This is the heart of House Church.  If you are interested call Pam at (217)428-8839.
