If you’re around Faith long enough, you’ll hear us talking about The Triangle.
This isn’t in reference to a mystical shape or secret code. The Triangle is nothing more than an effective tool that we use to help individuals know more about where they are strong and where they may be lacking. As a church, these are the three points of emphasis that we want all people who call Faith Church home to participate in - spiritual growth, biblical community and service. A life with God, with each other, and with the community.
What does your triangle look like? Are you lacking in a certain area? If so, we've put together a few resources below to help you out.
Life with God
Read through the entire Bible in a year using the YouVersion app or Bible.com. Consider fasting from lunch on Monday to spend focused time in prayer with God, setting the stage for a "life with God" week.Commit to attending a Sunday morning gathering (service) each week here at Faith or another Jesus-focused church in the area.Sign up to be a part of a Life Change Group (smaller groups within Missional Communities). Click here for more information.Take a Sabbath (rest) this week and use it to remember and reflect on what you do have in God, rather than searching for something new. Create a time in your week when you disconnect from work & technology in order to reconnect with family, friends, God, and even self.During conversation with God (prayer), focus on confession (being honest with God about areas in your life that you haven't walked in your identity as a child of God) and repentance (a turning back to your true identity in Him).Read The Spirit of the Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Lives by Dallas Willard or Living God’s Love by Gary Holloway.
Life with each Other
Biblical Community: Some people have Biblical Community and don’t even know it! Joining together with friends to hold one another accountable, study God’s Word and support one another through life’s trials is what Biblical Community might look like.Join a Missional Community and dive into spiritual community here at Faith.
Life with the Community
Serving: Serving can look different for each of us. Sometimes it's just a willingness to help someone in need the minute we see it. Sometimes it’s about getting your hands dirty or putting some elbow grease into it. It can be inside the walls of our church, in your neighborhood or in your home. But we’re all called to become servants in the world. To know what that might look like for you and opportunities available, stop by the Next Steps Booth on Sunday or e-mail Judy Gabbard, our Office Manager. Join a Missional Community and be a part a "Life with the Community" project.
