BEFORE YOU VISIT
SO MUCH HAPPENS BEFORE YOU EVEN WALK THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR...
Looking for a faith community? We get that. At one point or another we all are. Some of us grew up in a church and no matter what we can't shake how much we feel at home when we are in one. Others just discovered the blessing of being in a church community later in life. There is no wrong time or reason to start looking for a community where you can belong.
BUT ... each church is unique! We all worship the same God and serve one another, but the ways we go about doing that can look radically different; so, in order to help you figure out if Living Faith is right for you, here are our passions:
JOY: GET READY TO BE JOYFUL
Happiness comes and goes. It is dependent upon the weather, but deeper than happiness is joy. Joy is the knowledge that you are right with God, right with life, and right with those around you. Joy is the wisdom that even if life is not necessarily going your way, your cup still runneth over.
Joy is your knowing that you are loved and each moment spent living is a gift, a gift meant to not be bottled up and kept away -- but shared! Each time we gather together, whether in a Bible Study or for a committee meeting or on a Sunday morning, expect to see, feel, and walk away with your heart full of joy.
MISSION: WE SERVE ONE ANOTHER
A church is a community where you do life with others. When you are full, then you pour into others. Just as when you are feeling empty, you allow others to pour into you. We do this with one another on a daily basis, but as a church we also do this with the wider communities in which God places us. If we have resources others need, then we share what we can to the most people we can. Blessings are only blessings when you can share them with someone else.
So, as a church we prioritize mission. Our posture is how else can we serve you? What other ways does our neighborhood or town need us? These are the questions are always asking. If you ask those same questions, then you are in the right spot. If you know where we can be the hands and feet of God, then please share with us. If you want to be in mission, lend a hand.
YOU ARE RIGHT WHERE YOU NEED TO BE
Faith is a journey. We are each at different points along the path of it. God has us right where we are needed, teaching us something useful and holy, that will help us grow and become a blessing in time to those around us. Wherever you are on the journey -- whether you know God well or not at all -- that is perfectly ok.
You will feel right at home here. Living Faith is home to you for the entire walk of faith. Begin here. Wrestle and discern and learn here. Come back here after some time apart. Whatever you need you will find that you are right where you need to be.
BE COMFORTABLE. BE EXTRAORDINARY
We get this question a lot: what should I wear to worship? There's no expectation or formal dress code. Whatever you wear here all that we ask is that your outfit makes you joyful and lets you feel extraordinary. Want to wear a suit? Awesome! Want to show up in a dress or pair of overalls? Cool! We are from the dust and return to the dust, so life is too short to be boring or scared. Dress in the ways you want, and by your doing so you will be honoring God!
