The Three G's
At Faith Community Church our mission is to do three things- and do them to the best of our ability. We're not concerned with "programs" or busy work. We prefer to keep it simple and meaningful. With that in mind, here are those three things we strive to do well:
"Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts" (Colossians 3:16 NIV)We were created to worship.
At Faith Community Church we gather every Sunday to worship God, and we encourage our people to attend each service if possible. As hard as it is at times, we do our best to put aside all the distractions of the world and focus on Him. We sing songs of praise, we give our tithes, we listen to the scriptures, we pray.
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another." (Hebrews 10:24-25a NIV)
If you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus you need to have intentional relationships with people who share that same goal.
A small group is an ideal place for that. Share a meal, pray for each other and have a small Bible study. At Faith Commnity Church we want everyone to belong to a Group that meets at least once a month. Groups meet throughout the week at the church or in people's homes.
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship." (Romans 12:1 NIV)
When we serve others we serve God.This can mean handing out bottled water or hot chocolate at a local high school football game. Maybe it means cleaning up a local park one Saturday. Perhaps we might return all those stray shopping carts to the front of the grocery store. The Servant Evangelism Team goes into Liberty and Fairfield Townships at least four times a year to represent FCC and serve those in need. At Faith Community Church we would love everyone to be a part of at least one servant evangelism project a quarter.
