He Still Moves Stones!

"He is risen, just as he said!" (Matthew 28:6). The stone was rolled away and Christ rose victorious over sin and death, but he didn't stop there. He said to Martha months before his death, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never never die. Do you believe this?" Jesus promised eternal life and abundant life here and now. His living presence in our lives is the assurance of hope, peace, power and purpose. We begin a new series starting on Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter), looking at the many ways that Jesus still shows up, everyday, in real ways, even when all hope, peace, power, and purpose seem lost. He still moves stones!

We'd love to have you join us Sundays at 10:30am at our campus in Gladstone.

Masks are no longer required, but you are more than welcome to wear one (no judgment here). 

The service will be live-streamed as well through our Facebook page. Click here to go to our Facebook Page where you can join the Live Stream.
Giving at this time is completely through the website (see below).

P A U L ' S  P R A Y E R for the church is that we might be "filled with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy  of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God" Colossians1:9-10. 

Central to our faith is knowing the God in whom our faith is placed. Desiring to grow takes more than wishful thinking.  We encourage each other in having a plan for growth through Bible reading and prayer as the foundational means to increasing our knowledge of God and our intimacy with him.
Living a life worthy of the Lord is our highest pursuit, but the Word of God makes it clear we are to do that in community.  We emphasize that connecting with others is the privilege and priority for believers to encourage one another towards Christlikeness.
As faith without works is dead, so a spiritual life without service is incomplete and inconsistent.  We value the gifting that every believer has to use in the spiritual growth of Christ's Church and the spreading of the Gospel through love and service in our community and around the world.

A Time to Shine- 2 Timothy 1:7
"God has not given us a spirit of fear..." Fear and anxiety are all around us as we walk through this surreal time, attempting to avoid the cornavirus. "But of power, love and a sound mind." God is on his throne and called us to "shine like stars" even in the darkest of times. Today we take a brief break from our series in Luke to address the COVID-19 issue that has captured the attention of the world.

    Engaging our Culture with the Gospel
    Today we start our new series through the Gospel of Luke, to see how Jesus and the Gospel engaged the culture of the first century, and that we are called to do the same. This decade of the 2020's is in just as much cultural upheaval as the Roaring 20's of the 20th Century. How does the story of Jesus, told through the eyes of Luke direct us to respond in the days we are living?

    Having On or Letting Go- The Role of Women in the Church
    The stance of the Free Methodist Church on Women in the Church is this "...women should be encouraged to take their place in all areas of church leadership and ministry. Jesus calls us all, women and men, to make disciples and build the kingdom of God.” Today we wrap up our multi-week look at the context that builds the case for women in leadership based on their gifting and equality in Christ, as we tackle two of the most contested verses on the subject, 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 and 1 Timothy 2:11-15.

    Keeping the Gospel the Main Thing
    Today we take a closer look at three pivotal passages for the foundation that the Bible lays out for marriage: Ephesians 5, Colossians 3 and 1 Peter 3.  But what we see as we look at the context of these letters and the story of Scripture as a whole is the equality of all people in Christ, and thus a balanced view within marriage, of equality, partnership and mutual submission, all to serve the purpose of keeping the Gospel the priority. When people look at your life, your relationships, how you treat others in your life, does it promote the grace displayed in the Gospel, or does in hinder the message of the Gospel?

    Restory of Women
    The Bible was never meant to be read like a dictionary or an encyclopedia. It is a story of God's pursuit of relationship with us and facilitating relationship with one another. "in the beginning..." God created man and woman in his image equal and with the charge together, before the fall, to steward all of creation together.  As sin entered the world, hierarchy ensued and it became a "man's world." However, the story of Scripture is filled with incredible women whom God used as a part of his grand plan of redemption, and they became central figures for Jesus in his ministry, death and resurrection. The power of the Gospel was unleashed in the lives of women. What's holding you back from God's power being unleashed in and through you?

    The Righteous Response- The Story of Joseph (Matthew 1:18-25)
    "Joseph was a righteous man," but what does that really look like and how did it get tested in the life of Jesus' adoptive father. Today we look at what it means to obey God when it tests us in ways we aren't sure we can handle.

    Nicodemus- “Getting Unstuck”
    We get three different opportunities to peek into the life of Nicodemus in the book of John (John 3, 7, and 19).  What we see is a man who had gotten stuck in religiosity, but had an increasing desire to know what Jesus really had to offer, and in the process of seeking the truth, Nicodemus became unstuck, finding new life and forgiveness.

    Apostle Paul- Acts 9
    "Apostle Paul- Acts 9".  One of the most dramatic "restory's" in the Bible, as a zealous Pharisee is visit by the risen Savior and transformed into an apostle for the Church he was committed to destroying. In this message, we look at his journey from resistance to redemption.

    Blindman- John 9
    Blind spots. We've all got them, but the problem is that we can't see them.  Today we look at look at the responses to the healing of the blindman by Jesus and what it revealed.  What is our response to what Jesus wants to show us?

    When Opportunity Knocks- The Story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10
    Jesus was just passing through Jericho, but Zacchaeus, a rich, short, despised tax-collector, was not going to let the opportunity pass him by to catch a glimpse of the miracle worker everyone was taking about. But what he got was so much more than he could have imagined.  When opportunity knocked, Zacchaeus opened the door.  What about the opportunities in front of you to experience more of Jesus in your life? How much of God do you want? How much does he want for you?




 Children's ministry

Kid's are important to God and families at The Source.  They are encouraged to participate in our worship service.  The kids are dismissed during the message for their own Children's Church where they have a children's choir rehearsal or their own lesson.  All volunteers have to submit to a background check and children's ministry training.
Current Children's events:

Youth Ministry

Our youth ministry includes both middle school and high school students.  We follow the same pattern as our church of Knowing, Being and Doing. The knowing comes through digging into God's Word and topics that impact our faith and how we live it out.  Being comes through connecting with each other through youth group, events, and various means through we which we can build each other up.  And doing is through service as many of our youth serve within the church through worship or children's ministry, as well as the many service projects which The Source takes on throughout the year.

Youth Group meets Wednesdays from 7:30-9:00pm (during normal school year)

Schedule for summer is centered on events and retreats.

What We Believe
The story of history is really God’s story of seeking the relationship He amazingly desires to have with us.  He created us in His image to be known by Him, loved by Him and accepted by Him so that we might forever enjoy the glory, perfection and beauty of all that He is (Genesis 1:26-27; John 3:16-17, Acts 2:42-47, Colossians 3).
Simply stated… We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and the final authority for our lives in all that it teaches.
We believe that there is only one true God, eternally self-existing in three persons of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Son of God, and that faith in Him,  his sacrificial work on the cross, and resurrection from the grave, is the only way to right relationship with God.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is at work today, as He indwells all believers, empowering those who willfully are led by Him.
We believe that the Church is made up of all who have confessed faith in Christ alone for salvation, both past, present and future, and that the Church is the witness through which God is revealing His wisdom, grace and love.
We believe that Christ will return, history will come to completion and that God will in the end set all things right.
