Our passion lies in fostering meaningful relationships, both within our community and with God. We firmly believe that the essence of following Jesus resides in our ability to connect and relate to one another.
Introducing LifeGroups: Building Lasting Bonds
To cultivate healthy and enduring relationships, we have established LifeGroups, our version of small groups. These gatherings consist of approximately 6 to 8 individuals who come together throughout the week to share meals, socialize, and provide mutual support. LifeGroups serve as a source of encouragement and guidance for one another. Furthermore, each LifeGroup will have the opportunity to select an external ministry each month, enabling them to serve the community and make a positive impact. For example, a LifeGroup might choose to volunteer at the Humane Society, dedicating their time and efforts to support their cause.
Internal and External Ministries: Sustaining the Church, Serving the Community
At St. Francis Community Church, we value both internal and external ministries. Internal ministries focus on the vital tasks that keep our church running smoothly. These may include the Altar guild, Hospitality, Greeters/Ushers, Setup/CleanUp, and more. On the other hand, external ministries extend beyond the church, engaging with various community organizations and initiatives. We encourage each capable member to actively participate in both an internal and an external ministry. External ministries are usually chosen within one’s LifeGroup, allowing them to serve together, fostering camaraderie and collaboration.
Together, we can build strong relationships within our church and extend our reach to the wider community. By engaging in internal and external ministries, we demonstrate our commitment to embodying Christ’s teachings through compassionate action.
If you’re ready to forge meaningful connections, make a difference, and be part of a community that values relationships, we invite you to join us at St. Francis Community Church. Together, let’s create a nurturing environment where love, faith, and service thrive.
