Connect is the first word in our mission statement because it is the tie that binds us together. We CONNECT with each other. But more importantly, we need to connect with Jesus Christ.
As your church family, we provide the opportunities to encourage those CONNECTIONS within our congregation, our community, and our world. Fellowship opportunities as well as helping to minister to others and the Lord, bring us closer together, help us to GROW and give us opportunities to SERVE.
Tying quilts, visiting over a potluck meal, singing together with the Praise Team, or bringing communion to the homebound are some of the ways we stay CONNECTED to each other. Worship, prayer, small group studies, and mission projects are some of the ways we CONNECT with Jesus Christ.
Jesus explains our CONNECTION to Him in this way:
“I am the vine, and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me. Those who do not remain in me are thrown out like a branch and dry up; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, where they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it. My Father’s glory is shown by your bearing much fruit; and in this way you become my disciples.”
