Wondering how to connect at Mission Point?


NextStepsBlogHeaderI was recently traveling in the Northwest and had to change planes in Seattle. I found myself wondering several times out loud, “Well, now where do I go?”

Being that it was my first time at the Seattle airport probably had a lot to do with it. Regardless, it’s one of the most confusing terminal systems I’ve ever experienced. It seems to be set up in this complex triangle with trains that loop through different terminals but no one train hits them all. Being from the South, I’m used to the Atlanta airport. It’s huge but you get on one train and it will make its way through every terminal, no problem. In Seattle, you’ve got to be on your toes. If you are looking down at Instagram while riding their trains, there is a good chance you will miss your terminal and possibly your flight. I had to change trains three different times to get to my next plane. I didn’t have a lot of time to spare, and at one point I pulled off my best 40 yard dash that ended in a flying sideways leap as the doors were coming to a close. The man that I flew into was not amused.

How about you? Do you ever find yourself in a place and you wonder, “Well, now where do I go?”

Church can be that way. Especially if you are new.

There are certain rhythms and systems in place and you can easily feel like I felt in Seattle… Confused and not sure where to go next. At Mission Point we are blessed to be experiencing a season of growth. It’s so exciting! However, in the midst of growth and with so many new faces it can be really easy to get lost in the shuffle.

That is the very reason we created Next Steps.

We do not want anyone to feel lost, confused, or slip through the cracks with hundreds of people coming in and out of the doors on Sunday mornings. Besides, Mission Point Community Church is more than just Sunday morning. It’s a group of people locking arms as a community, working to head in the direction that Jesus has invited us to go.

September 13th, 20th, and 27th we will be offering Next Steps.

It’s a 15-20 minute gathering at the end of each worship service. The whole environment is designed to help you get better connected to Mission Point. Come and hear about our vision, mission, and different ministry opportunities that we engage in as a church. It is your chance to connect with some of our staff and to ask any questions you may have about the organization.

We love that you are coming on Sunday’s, but we want the opportunity to get to know you and connect you to our community. So please consider joining us for 20 minutes in Next Steps and we’ll do our best to help you get connected… and no worries, 40 yard dashes are not required!
