This coming Sunday I will be teaching our church's Inquirers' Class. In this class, inquirers learn more about our church so they can decide if our church is the best fit for them as they seek out a church family to which they can belong.
Christians, as Scripture makes clear, need to be a part of a church. The church is the gathering of believers in community. The church, as it gathers, welcomes all (at least it should) to participate in the times of singing, praying, greeting, and preaching. Some who sing will worship with their words; others (those who do not yet follow Jesus in belief) learn as they sing. During the preaching and teaching, some of the gathered hear helpful words of reminder while others hear about God and historical events in ways they never have before.
At Rabbit Creek Church, we want the church veteran and rookie alike to feel welcomed, valued, and reached. We keep that goal in mind as we design our services - from our style of singing and dress to our demeanor and our teaching. As the primary preacher / teacher, I aim to make my message relatable to the person who doesn't know Jonah from Jesus as well as the person who can quote the Apostles' Creed and distinguish between justification and sanctification. Why do we do all of this? We do all of this so that many will hear of the love of Jesus. We do all of this so that people will know that God is love. We do all of this so that people will learn why and how to place their everyday, Ordinary lives before God as an offering.
