LOST IN TRANSLATION

MESSAGE SERIES

09.27 - 10.25.2020


Sometimes we have a fuzzy focus and that creates fuzzy results. What we intend to communicate is lost in translation. This series explores how we can be clearer and more focused as we seek to build relationships with those who do not have an active relationship with Jesus Christ.

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. We believe it's impossible to encounter Jesus without coming away changed. Our goal is to be Jesus in the community and the world, so that our hearts and the hearts of those we serve might 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.
