RADICAL HOSPITALITY

07.07 ~ 07.28.2019


Many of us who do not have the Spiritual Gift of Hospitality might tend to only think about it as an attempt to change our behavior toward others. But God does not desire to simply change our behavior. Instead, God desires to change our character through the practice of spiritual disciplines and an obedient desire to know the heart of God. Being void of possessing the Spiritual Gift of Hospitality according to some Gifts Assessment Survey does not exempt us from participation in this practice. The key is identifying ways in which we can use the Spiritual Gifts we have been given to fully participate in Radical Hospitality that is rooted in Christ.


"Most of all, love each other steadily and unselfishly, because love makes up for many faults.
Show hospitality to each other without complaint. Use whatever gift you’ve received for the good of one another so that you can show yourselves to be good stewards of God’s grace in all its varieties." 1 Peter 4:8-10

THE MISSION

Making New Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World


Jesus is at the center of everything we say, sing, pray, preach, and do. Because it's impossible to encounter Jesus without coming away changed, our goal is to be Jesus in the community and the world so they, too, can be transformed by the power of the holy spirit.

OUR STORY

We've been part of the fabric of the community that bears his name since the Reverend Harris G. Joplin, a Methodist circuit rider, made his way to the edge of the frontier back in the 1830’s and planted a congregation among the folks who had settled here. As the community grew so did we. In 1905 we opened the doors to a new house of worship at the corner of 4th and Byers Avenue, and those doors are still open today.


Turn the page. A lot has changed since then: styles, music, technology, even our building. But our commitment to sharing Christ with the community and the world has not. We are a unique blend of old and new, classic and modern, with a common love for Jesus and for you! Please join us and become part of writing the next chapter in this community of faith.
