What is a Missional Community?
A Missional Community is a family of missionary disciples sent out to make disciples.
What are Missional Community Rhythms?
MC Rhythms are the way a MC lives out their identity together. They are strategically developed to be expressions of our identity as well as focus on the mission of that particular community.
What are the rhythms of the Missional Communities?
Family Meals (Family)
Family meals are the place a missional community comes together to engage one another as a family. They eat together, pray together, learn from one another, and be together. This is also the place where seekers and new disciples can begin engaging the larger community. Its primary purpose is to foster Gospel based relationships.
Missional Space (Missionaries)
This is the place where a MC seeks to authentically love and serve a particular pocket of people, in hope of sharing the Gospel and seeing disciples made. Mission is about who, not what, and so each community engages a network of relationships, such as those found in a neighborhood, school, bar, local ministry partner, etc.
DNA Groups (Disciples)
DNA groups are intimate (2 - 4) gender specific discipleship groups which focus on nurturing and growing one’s relationship with Christ through personal accountability and relational engagement with Scripture and prayer. This is the space where people can dig deep into each other’s lives and into the Scripture for personal growth.
MC’s gather with all of our Missional Communities on Sundays for corporate worship and the building up of the church for God’s purposes. Sundays focus on communal worship involving the preaching of The Word, the singing and prayers of the saints, the practice of the ordinances, and the fellowship of God’s people. We do this together as a community as MCs. Regular weekly worship helps us to keep God at the center of our lives and our community
