Sundays are more than a service…
Far too often in our culture church is simply thought of as something you attend. But this was never what God intended. His Church is about community. It’s about His family. It’s about spending time together and living life together. When we reduce His family to a service we miss many of the blessings God intends for our lives.
At the CORE Christian Community we set Sundays aside, as the Church historically has, as a day for Jesus’ family to gather to worship, to build relationships, to be equipped to live the life Jesus intends for us, and to not just attend a service but to BE the Church.
After our time of worship, which includes music, a message, a time of giving and a time to take The Lord’s Supper (Communion), we then continue in what we call Connect Groups. This is simply people getting together to build relationships. Some groups go out to eat at restaurants or homes. Other groups do an activity like running, volleyball, games, or go down to the shooting range. Still others simply go back to homes to relax and talk.
Finally, we return to the Community Center for a time of equipping. We have various classes on many different topics ranging from Bible studies, to learning how to counsel your friends, to learning how to be a better parent.
So join us for something a little different on Sunday… it’s more than a service it’s a family.
What is the CORE?
The CORE started out as a way for us to focus on four things we think lead to spiritual growth. Corporate Worship, Others Focused, Relationships, and Education. But as our first congregation grew we realized those things happen better in smaller groups. So instead of trying to get bigger and bigger in one location the CORE took on added meaning.
The CORE is now also the name given to our Church community as a whole. Instead of spending our resources on multiple buildings, and to keep our main groups smaller for better opportunities to form relationships and find places to serve, we rent space for Sunday gatherings throughout the community. We use our combined resources to support staff and a Community Center.
Our various congregations come together for larger things like youth groups, special events, mission trips, and educational opportunities. We believe this allows for the best use of our resources and the best opportunities to be the family God has called us to be.
