MINISTRIES

    Children

    Sunday School classes for children through 5th grade meet from 9:15am to 10:15am, before worship.


    Paul says to parents, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Any teaching children receive on a weekly basis in their specific classes is only a supplement to what we trust you are already learning together as a family.


    We strongly believe in the necessity and importance of intergenerational integration. This means that most everything we do on a regular basis is meant to include the whole family, including and especially our regular Lord’s Day worship. We sing together, pray together, come to the Lord’s table together, give together, and hear the gospel proclaimed together.


    Psalm 127 says that unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. We believe that the Lord is building His house and so our dedicated team of teachers are going to continue to faithfully communicate the truth of the Scriptures week after week to our children.

    Christians follow a well-worn path. Every one of us follows in the footsteps of those who have gone before and we are all showing the way to those coming after us. In other words, when we look at the big picture we are all following and we are all leading. At Christ Fellowship our desire is to lead younger people in word and deed down that well-worn path.


    We understand and firmly believe that only disciples of Christ can make disciples of Christ and thus we encourage and provoke students to know Truth. We strive for growth, not prolonged adolescence. Like a tree planted by water, a garden or a newborn baby, steadfastness, fruitfulness, and maturity cannot be expected overnight. Discipleship is an organic process like any other organic process. As parents, mentors, teachers, or preachers at the end of the day, we are all ultimately trusting the magical—the supernatural work of the Creator of life. We are trusting the sure hands of the good Potter to do with our young people what will glorify Himself the most. 

    Young People

    Older People

    This section applies to you if you are older than someone else. Paul paints a wonderful picture in Titus 2 (vv. 1-8) of intergenerational relationships and the mentoring that takes place where the gospel is at work as we share life together. 


    Older men and women are commanded, not suggested, to teach those who are younger. 


    Our hope is to create unity in diversity. Men and women, single and married, young and older will gather together in recognition of our absolute inability to live out the gospel alone.

    It has often been said that music is the language of the soul and we believe it. We are passionate about music as it is a rich part of the Church's history and tradition. We love it, we love to listen to it and we love to create it. 


    This passion stems from a love of the arts and all things beautiful. Go ahead and try to separate what is beautiful from the one who Created it all. You can't, no one can. The God who is called the Author and the Creator has not only made everything beautiful in its time, He gave us the standard of beauty itself. All is from Him and for Him. To God alone be glory.


    Paul says that we are to address one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord in our hearts. This is a joy! Music helps us to move what is in our heads, into our hearts. We believe that this is the goal of music in our gatherings: the saints singing as one, worshipping in Spirit and Truth.


    To worship in Spirit and Truth isn’t a formula or recipe for a “really good” worship gathering. We are in the Spirit and Christ is the Truth. Christ in us is the fragrance of worship whether we're singing or sleeping. It is not as much about a willful choice as it is about Christ, our life, and the fruit that we bear. It is about God glorifying His Son in His Church. Music is an avenue—one beautiful aspect of the grand reality of Christ in us, the Hope of glory.

    Prayer

    Prayer is not just a religious activity we do, it's the lifestyle of the believer. Paul told the Thessalonians to "pray without ceasing." This doesn't mean we are to spend all of our time on our knees and in our closets, it means we live with the conscious reality of Christ in us. We live conscious of the reality that God is always speaking and as a good Father, He has invited His children to ask of Him anything (John 14:14).


    Prayer is an attitude, a mindset that is incorporated into our daily life wherever we are and in whatever we do. Our mind set on God, communing with Him, and loving Him with all of our heart and mind and strength. It is our communication with God—conscious as we pray with our understanding and constant as the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us.


    "I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time—waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God—it changes me."—C.S. Lewis


    Just as important as our individual faithfulness to private prayer is our corporate praying which strengthens the body of Christ locally and beyond. Regularly this includes everything from praying for the suffering among us, our governing authorities, and our persecuted brothers and sisters.


    So in all things by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God....corporately and personally.


    If you would like us to pray for you, please fill out the prayer request form below and we would be happy to.
