We are Missional
Being missional includes embracing the posture, the thinking, behaviors, and practices of a missionary in order to reach others with the message of the gospel. As a church we live sent. Jesus told his disciples in John 20:21 “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
Living sent means we are called to our neighborhoods, schools, coffee shops and our workplaces. Being sent sees our vocation as opportunities to serve our neighbor and also an opportunity to be a missionary to our neighbor.
Our vision for missional lifegroups
MULTIPLYING MISSIONAL FAMILIES THROUGHOUT EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD, BY MAKING DISCIPLES AND BEING AGENTS OF CHANGE.
Our Missional LifeGroups gather weekly as a family to help one another discover Jesus in the Scriptures, Nurture the truths of the gospel in our hearts, and take Action to obey what Jesus calls us to. Groups grow spiritually and relationally, ultimately becoming like family.
A healthy community lives in three spheres:
Sunday gathering - A time for the whole body to gather together to publicly worship Jesus, serve Jesus and help others love Jesus.
LifeGroup - A community intentional with developing relationships, discipleship and spiritual growth.
Outreach - As a LifeGroup we seek to engage, know, serve and love the lost in a neighborhood.
How to participate in Missional LifeGroups
LEAD A GROUP
Are you a leader? Do you lead a community? Maybe, you regularly gather people in your home for barbecues or to watch football... Want to be a place for others to gather? If so, we'd love for you to be a point person and host others! We recognize that there are many people (whether they’re regular attenders or first time visitors) who are not yet in community, and we’d like to do everything we can to plug them into a LifeGroup. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
JOIN A GROUP
If you’re not going to host one, join one! Go be with friends, family, brothers & sisters from Red Door to worship Jesus together. Fill out a Connect Card on Sunday morning or email email@example.com
HELP A GROUP
There are tons of roles to play in a Missional Lifegroup! Start by joining a group, then ask the group leader how you can help!
INVITE A FRIEND & SHARE THE MOMENT
Invite someone, who might not normally walk through the doors of a church, to experience community.
