Since our earliest days as the Vaughn street church, when we were
125 people strong, our strategy of actualizing the kingdom vision
has been constant - to be a biblically functioning community where
transformational teaching produces committed relationships, true
worship, servanthood, help for the poor, and the empowers the process
of believers becoming fully functional and devoted followers of
Christ. And after more than 25 years, these values still serves
as the heart beat of our ministry.
How do you fit in?
We want you to know that wherever you are on your spiritual journey,
whether you're just beginning to investigate Christianity or you
already have a mature relationship with Jesus, we're here to help
you take the next step spiritually and to offer you a place where
you can be as involved as you choose.
Weekly Worship Celebration
The weekly corporate assembly brings the entire body together for
one collective witness and celebration. This corporate worship assembly
uses spirit-lifting congregational singing, multi-media, acapella
music, and a message that connects with people's lives, the ageless
wisdom of Scripture is presented in a dynamic, yet straight-forward
way. People who haven't attended church, or for some reason have
quit going to church, are often surprised at how meaningful these
services are. In fact, the services are specifically designed for
individuals checking out what it really means to have a relationship
with God through the Son, Jesus Christ.
Children's Bible Hour
Not just another service, Bible Hour is a children's worship
assembly, a truly alternative experience for children between
the ages of four to eleven. The Word is presented to children
in dramatic fashion. Costume characters and puppets are used
to bring the stories of the Bible to life. The Bible Hour
is staffed with spiritually gifted believers who are capable
of effective communication with children.
Sunday Evening Zone Services
Our members experience our church family on three levels: they experience
the corporate family gathering each Sunday morning, the mid-size
congregational /zone assemblies each Sunday evening, and the small
group midweek assembly. The design of the evening congregational
worship assemblies is for small groups to meet in community zones
to inspire and encourage each other. These mid-size worship assemblies
allow members with speaking and teaching gifts to cultivate and
exercise their spiritual gift abilities. Members who commute weekly
to the corporate worship celebration assemble with their community
group in regional worship centers on Sunday evenings.
Midweek Cell Group Meeting
Worship permeates all of our gatherings. The most personal experience
of worship takes place in weekly Cell Group meetings. Midweek Cell
Group meetings cultivate personal relationships among participants,
engage members in personal expressions of worship allowing members
to share personal testimonies of God's goodness and engage in various
forms of group prayer. The group engages in life-application discussions
of the Word, and the meeting closes with the participants being
challenged to serve and share the love of God with others.
