Step into the Living Room

Been attending church for awhile?

Feel closer to Christ?

Wondering how to move toward fully surrendering your life to God?

Try some of these ideas, as God leads you…

  1. Take another step toward living into the membership covenant:
  • pray daily / worship weekly
  • be part of a small group / take a class at church
  • serve within the walls of the church
  • serve beyond the walls of the church
  • give proportionately of your income, working toward a tithe (10%) and beyond

For example, make daily quiet time with God a priority; carve out the time for solitude and silence. Try another serving opportunity. Increase your financial giving to the church as a spiritual practice, working toward tithing (giving 10% of your income) and beyond.

  1. Join the church and commit to growing toward living fully into the membership covenant.
  2. Join a ministry team or a mission outreach effort to regularly serve within or beyond the walls of the church according to your areas of giftedness. Ideas:
  • Serve on the hospitality team; welcome people as they come to church for worship.
  • Share your gifts on the multimedia or sound teams.
  • Join the chancel choir, praise & worship team, or the Warehouse 839 band.
  • Serve on one of the church’s administrative committees, such as Finance or Trustees.
  • Distribute school supplies, Thanksgiving meals, or Christmas presents when those church-wide outreach events roll around (annual).
  1. Take more adult spiritual formation classes. Try another foundational class, or take Disciple I, a year-long study of the Bible. Join a Sunday school class.
  2. Join a small group Bible study that meets at least twice a month, where the focus is on having personal spiritual conversations.
  3. Learn more about other spiritual practices you could try, to deepen your relationship with God.
  4. Deepen your daily prayer time by writing your thoughts and reflections on the Bible passages you’re reading.
