ABOUT US

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. 

 
KNOWING
Central to our faith is knowing the God in whom are 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.
BEING
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.
DOING
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.

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?

    Just Answer One Question- The Story of Peter from John 21
    Jesus shows up, spoke up, and woke up Peter to a new opportunity for restoration.  We continue our series in God's repurpose, rectory and redemption in the lives of his followers.

    What Makes a Hero…Sacrifice
    As we conclude the sermon series, "What Makes a Hero", the last character trait we are going to look at is, Sacrifice. What is God asking you to sacrifice? God ask His son, Jesus to give up his life as a sacrifice for us. Mark 10:45 says, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his as a ransom for many". We are called to serve. Paul says in Ephesians 5, we are to walk in the way of love, just like Christ loved us and gave his life for us. Walk in the way in love and love like Christ loves us.

    What Makes a Hero…Power
    If you could have any superpower, what would it be? What would be the purpose of that power? "With great power, comes great responsibility". Today, we looked at how all power has a purpose. Ephesians 3:20 says, Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." We have a chance to partake in this power, by trusting Him, humbling ourselves, asking Him, and pushing ourselves.

    What Makes a Hero…Compassion
    Compassion is the next trait we look at in our series. Compassion is defined as, "to recognize the suffering of others, then take action to help". Lisa takes us through 1 John 3:16-20 to illustrate what compassion looks like in the New Testament. The passage tells us to not only tell our brothers and sisters in Christ that we love them, but also, let our actions communicate that we love them. "Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions" (1 Jn 3:18). Compassion should drive us to action, it speaks the Gospel without words and translates our beliefs and values to our culture.

    What Makes a Hero…Honor
    As we continue our sermon series, "What Makes a Hero?". The next trait we look at is Honor. Pastor Russ, asks you a question, "What is your reputation?" Through a set of different superhero clips, we see the progression from someone who has no honor, to an individual that would give up their life because of it. "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21). Christ is the ultimate example of honor. So, examine yourself and ask the question, who are you when all is stripped away? And remember this, your reputation REpresenting Christ.

 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.

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.
