"Save the Lost, Pastor the Saved, Equip the Pastored, Send the Equipped"

But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.   (Mark 4:20)

Half of all U.S. churchgoers (51%) say they are unfamiliar with the term "Great Commission." - Barna Group

SIP Group Information!!
SIP groups started March 1, 2020 and have people from dozens of congregations and almost 20 states.

In sum, SIP stands for “Scripture Invitation Prayer.” Five to seven people are in a text group together, and each person takes responsibility to send a short “sip” (not a firehose) of a scripture on their day of the week for 40 days. I might have Monday, you’d have Tuesday, someone else Wednesday, etc. for each week. It’s a wonderful daily encouragement in the Lord from a group of friends.

New semesters start the first day of January, March, May, July, September, and November. There are couples groups, women only groups, men only groups, and parent child groups.

Contact Pastor Chris or the church office for more information or to join!

Disciple-Making Groups / Missional Communities
What are they?  Ordinary people teaming together on mission with extraordinary power, preaching, praying, giving and suffering for the spread of the gospel.

This is the picture of the early church that we see on the pages of the New Testament.  A small band of twelve men responded to a life-changing invitation: "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19)

Contact Pastor Chris (205-988-5004) to join a disciple making group or missional community.

Born to Multiply
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  And God blessed them.  And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth..." (Genesis 1:27-28)
