Missional Communities

Connecting with Community

If you wanted your orange tree to grow, you wouldn’t just turn the hose on for an hour on Sundays. Likewise, you can’t just go to church on Sunday morning and expect to grow either. The sermons by Pastor Mark and the preaching team are great, but that water alone won’t meet all of our spiritual needs. We all need consistent watering, but we also need a little pruning, fertilizer and some pest control. Chances are if you just show up on Sundays, you aren’t going to have the time and opportunity to grow deep roots. Just like the orange tree, we need other trees to cross-pollinate in order to grow big and juicy fruit. Everyone needs a band of brothers or sisters—a group of people equally committed to growing in Christ. We need other believers to support us, hold us up in prayer, help to meet needs, develop relationships and hold each other accountable. That won’t happen just in the Sunday morning worship gathering. That is what groups are all about. Our primary groups—Missional Communities—are modeled after the First Century church and are designed for intentional relationship building, spiritual formation and serving in a way that leads others to Christ. It’s a mission we call Live. Love. Share.

Current Missional Communities


‘Follow the Cloud’

Wednesday Mornings 11AM – 12:30 PM.

There is a big difference between being set free and living free. Many of us struggle with such questions as “How do I know what to do with my life?” and “How do I hear God’s voice?’ Maybe the answer is easier than you think. When God led the Israelities from Egypt to the Promised Land, He gave them a cloud to follow. He led them in an intimately personal, ever-present way, one next step at a time. He led them without revealing the whole picture because he wanted them to follow by faith.

In “Follow the Cloud,” Pastor John Stickl, from Valley Creek Church in Texas, uses this image to ask, “What if we stopped letting obligation drive us and instead let grace lead us? What if instead of focusing on our faithfulness toward God, we focus on God’s faithfulness toward us?”
