"Who are you?"
We're glad you asked! We are a small church with a big love for Jesus on the south side of Xenia, Ohio. Our congregation is a diverse group of individuals comprised of young children all the way to those who are young at heart! We have teachers, business professionals, engineers, craftsmen, retirees - civilian and military alike - and some pretty amazing youth! We enjoy spending time with one another at church, in Community Groups, and just hanging out together.
"Why a small church?"
Small church, to us, in no way means that we are struggling or that we are insignificant. As a matter of fact, we are impacting our local community and places across the globe. We believe that a small church offers a lot of things that a bigger church simply cannot. Our church is a place where you can join with others as we grow in our faith together.
"I want opportunities to serve!"
If that is the case, then we have a place for you! We believe in giving back to God through serving others. Whether it is through a missions trip, our Food Pantry, helping another who is in need, getting involved with Revive Ohio, or serving as a mentor, we have multiple opportunities to plug in.
"I'm looking for a place to grow in Jesus."
Discipleship is a priority in our fellowship. In fact, that is why we gather here: to make disciples who find and experience life in Jesus together! It is in our growing in Jesus that we prepare ourselves to go out into the world. We have Sunday School classes, Sunday evening studies, Wednesday evening studies, Community Groups that meet in various homes, and we have a discipleship group that meets for a year-long journey together. We see discipleship as more than just growing in Bible knowledge; discipleship is a way of life... it is an intentional effort on our part to be like Jesus.
"I like my worship music!"
Worship is a big part of who we are. Despite our smaller size, worship music is a priority. Our services are a blend of mostly contemporary music with hymns and older worship songs thrown in as well. We regularly host worship nights and one Sunday a month we hold our worship service in our fellowship hall and sing from the hymnal. Immediately following the service, we enjoy a fantastic carry-in dinner together.
