[Our] vision for worship, family ministry and outreach.
"Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air." 1 Corinthians 9:26
Vision for Sunday Service.
Imagine a room full of people from all walks of life. Some are hurting, maybe you don't know what's underneath the smile, but you sense it. Some have a gleam in their eye and are so wonderfully consumed by joy that it's contagious. Some are young, wide-eyed and absorbing all that is going on. Some are mature in faith and have a peace that calms the room. Rich, poor, suburban, rural, the differences are there. But, the unmistakable common thread is the love of Jesus is oozing through each person. There is a spiritual energy that ignites the room and spills over in the community. It's a community of believers who trade complacency for the dangerous wonder of following Jesus. It's a community of brothers and sisters in Christ serving together. Perfect? Heck no. We're smack in the middle of a messy, imperfect world. But we're on a mission because we love Jesus and feel His heartache for children who are far from him.
Vision for Family Ministry.
Children and youth are an important part of our community and we want to support and invest in them through building social capital. Our goal is not to offer programs for youth and children to attend, but opportunities for them to learn, grow and serve alongside others. We strive to include the whole family in our family ministry opportunities whether that be a family fun night, a community service event, or even during a worship service (Pastor Dave's goal is to keep everyone engaged during his messages).
Kids preschool through fifth grade are welcome to join us for Beyond Kids: a fun and interactive children's ministry featuring puppets on Sunday mornings during the sermon time.
Youth in middle school through high school are an essential part of Beyond the Walls. We've kicked off with a solid group of youth and are designing youth group activities and events for this year. Stay tuned for more info.
Vision for Outreach.
We want to bring the hope and love of Jesus to our community through events, sports clinics and a very special partnership. Let us know how you want to plug in!
We're already building out a community event calendar to provide a platform for community to happen. Potential events in the works include car washes, carnivals, magic shows, sports clinics, and leadership development speakers. We'll try to work donuts in there somewhere!
Beyond the Walls is partnering with HopeKids Colorado from the start. HopeKids Colorado organizes events for families with a child with a life threatening illness through partnerships with businesses, churches and other nonprofits. They also seek to create community through connecting families in similar circumstances. The number of HopeKids families in our area is growing, as many are moving here for a variety of reasons. Since events are a major part of our community outreach, it's a natural fit!
