Build Your Kingdom Here is our prayer and pathway to grow in spiritual maturity and an increased heart for ministry to others so that we will be a church that knows “God with us for the sake of others.” As we prepare to move to our new building in 2018, we want God to prepare us spiritually for the new season of ministry and expanded mission that will come with that move.
In 2017, we will ask God to build his kingdom in us as we explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We will study Jesus’ call to the disciples, the Sermon on the Mount, and spiritual disciplines to deepen our walk with Christ as disciples in the 21st century.
Then in 2018, we will ask God to build his kingdom through us as we explore the call all Christians have to minister in the name of Jesus. We will look at ways the Holy Spirit empowers and gifts Christians for mission. We will study missionaries of the Bible. Then, we will go out and serve through mission projects in our community.
Worship is the moment when our church community gathers at one time and place to honor God and encourage one another. During Build Your Kingdom Here, sermons will focus on deepening our walk with Christ as we grow in maturity and a heart for mission. Click here for the latest sermons.
