Welcome to Adults ministries. We long for every person to be found in Christ and to live out Christ’s call. We do that by working together to seek Christ, experience His love, and grow in His grace.

GO Teams are to a particular people in real community with shared commitment for the purpose of growing disciples.
To a Particular People: This allows us to do the intentional work of building sustainable relationships with those outside our church.
In Real Community: We are better together. Jesus sent his disciples out 2 by 2 in Luke 10, Acts 4:32, Romans 12:3-8, Hebrews 10:24-25. We are better on mission together, better as disciples together.
With Shared Commitment: Teams function best when they are confident their teammates are fully committed, and when they know they can count on each one being present.
For Growing Disciples: This is a lifelong process of leading people to increasingly submit all of life to the empowering presence and lordship of Jesus Christ.
How do we GO?
Go Pray Together: Before we go, we preemptively pray together. There is an ever-present culture of prayer in and among a GO Team because they believe for anything to happen. It is up to God. They have a shared vision and trust that God's timing, direction, and door-opening action are critical to ministry success.
Go Serve Together: We go with servant hearts. Teammates are looking outwards to the needs of others, prayerfully seeking practical ways to serve both those on their team as well as those in their mission field.
Go Disciple Together: There is an ever-present desire in all GO Team members to grow in submitting their lives to the lordship of Jesus Christ through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit and inviting others to do likewise. Group members intentionally spend time helping each other grow in Christ and live according to their Gospel identity. GO Teams also focus on helping others come to faith in Jesus and grow as disciples of Jesus.
Eat Together: When we go, it makes us hungry. GO Team members share life together: sharing meals together, studying the Word, celebrating joys and listening to each other’s stories, offering words of blessing and playing together, too. This is life in a GO Team in which each member from infant to centenarian is valued and vital.
Here's a list of Current GO Teams.
