As our pastor has said - one of the greatest challenges in the church today is to be absolutely solid in sound doctrine while also demonstrating sound missional practice!!
Ministry for us is three fold: Loving Jesus. Serving People. Making Disciples.
Available on Sundays at 5pm during the worship gatherings and currently using the Gospel Project curriculum.
Our version of home or small groups that meet in several host homes around town. These groups meet bi-weekly. The Grow Groups are currently using the Prodigal God by Tim Keller, Financial Peace by Dave Ramsey and Radical by David Platt. For more information on Grow Groups email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Heart and Soul Ministry is 323! Missions - it’s all about reconciling hurting people with a loving Savior!
What is 323! Missions? – - It is a place of refuge for men coming out of generational poverty, chronic homelessness, struggles with addiction, or all of the above. It is a place of discipleship. It is not a shelter, we do not warehouse people, but desire men that will commit themselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and displaying a willingness to serve Him through local missions.
On the property at 323! Missions located at 323 W. Oakland Ave. in Sumter:
* an average of 1,000 meals per month going out in various ways to our city
* a Harvest Hope/Feeding America network Food Bank
* a clothing closet
* various local missions outreach events and community cookouts
and so much more!!
The emphasis here is missions on a local level, coupled with residential discipleship of men coming out of homelessness and addictions. These men commit 10-12 months to a residential discipleship program ( Find the Facebook group here )
*Also there is a women’s house that is coming soon. We welcome all types of assistance and support in seeing this become a reality here in Sumter.
Operated out of the 323! home – clothing closest, food bank and other mercy ministries to those in need.
