GO with Our Community Groups to Serve Our Community
"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with
you not only the Gospel of Jesus but our lives as well..."
I Thessalonians 2:8
We are sent by the Spirit to GO and restore all things to God through Jesus Christ.
God sent Jesus to Earth to take on human form and live within the culture. He lived in such a way that those around him could see and experience what God was truly like. Jesus came so all people, places, and things could be restored to a right relationship with God. We believe we are missionaries sent by God’s Spirit into our culture to restore all things to God through Jesus. We live this out through involvement in a community on mission together. (John 1:14; 20:21; Colossians 1:19; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21)We GO and serve our community in a variety of ways...
- through community (together)
- through service projects
- through short-term trips
- through service days
- through community partnerships and our LoveOrange website.
- and many other ways.
Our people generously decide to dedicate 10% of our congregational income (our First Fruits) to be used to GO and Serve our community through the activities mentioned above.
What is a City Group?
When several Community Groups partner together in a region or on mission together they for a City Group. A City Group might have combined leadership, host retreats or outreach events distinct from other Commmunity Groups. A City Group could also eventually grow to become a unique congregation.
