What does it mean to be missional? What forms community?
We are a church of missional communities. First, we are missional. Simply put, we believe God has a mission in the world and invites us to be a part of it. What a privilege. Second, we emphasize forming extended family size communities (15 to 50 people) for this mission because we believe people should serve God alongside people they know and love like family. We say missional communities (MCs) are like being in an extended family on mission.
And we emphasize getting people involved in MCs before anything else – even worship. And that makes us a little different from many churches. Don’t read this wrong: we believe worship services are important. And we bring all the MCs together once a month for worship. But we believe people learn the way of Jesus better by “living life like Jesus” in a highly participatory missional community: reaching “Up” to encounter God through Christ, reaching “In” to experience Christ in community, and reaching “Out” to express Christ, meeting needs in the world.
