Our Services

What are services like?
Our goal as a community is to be a church with passionate faith in Jesus Christ that sacrificially loves, serves those in need, and draws people into an ever-deepening relationship with God. Every Sunday morning we want help facilitate a real connection between the Creator of the Universe and yourself through worshipping together. Since worship should move people towards participation rather than observation, we want to walk through a typical service so you can participate. Order of Worship: - Welcome and Family Announcements: During this time we share important family announcements and get our hearts ready to worship. - Call to Worship: We begin our time together by being called to worship by using Scripture to focus our hearts and minds on God. - Musical Worship: We believe worship is an act of the heart. We invite you to worship God through songs. - Receiving of Tithes and Offerings: We have three guidelines when we think about giving: tithe, sacrifice, and responsibility. - Message: Every week you will hear an expositional sermon from the Bible that will challenge you to draw you into an ever-deepening relationship with God and the world around you. Generally speaking, we walk through whole books of the Bible instead of topical sermon series. - Communion: We celebrate communion on a weekly basis. Additionally, during this time we receive our benevolence offering as a response to God's goodness to us! - Worship: We end our time together worshipping Jesus.

What is the community like?
Missio Dei Church holds a high level of relationships. We strongly believe that as followers of Jesus Christ we weren't just saved from something, rather we were saved to something. We were saved to be a part of something larger than ourselves, the body of Jesus Christ. We encourage our people to get connected into a Missional Community (commonly known as house groups) and do life together outside of a Sunday morning. We desire that people would share life in a way that reflects a Titus 2 sort of way. We want our older men to be teaching and intentionally discipling our younger men. The same goes for our older women in which they instruct and teach younger women to fufill their God-ordained roles. Missional Communities for us are the primary vehicle in which we see Gospel-transformation happening. However, we do not want these groups to simply be a Bible study or social gathering (although these things are great and do happen). Rather, we want our time together to be about going out to fulfill the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).

What if I'm not a Christian?
Wherever you are on the journey, we hope that you feel welcomed and at home in our church. Perhaps you have never been to church (or have only been a handful of times) and fear that you will not know what to do, how to act, or what to say. Be assured: this church is for people just like you. It is our commitment to walk you through each and every step of the worship service so that you will not feel like an outsider. People will greet you warmly at the door. You will be given a worship bulletin and be seated in our meeting space. From there you can expect some music, prayer, and teaching from the Scriptures. Additionally, you will learn more about our church and where you might best fit in.
