HOW WE LIVE
OUR RHYTHMS OF LIFE
We each have a story, however the Story of God, God’s story is the dominant
story over all of our lives. His story chronicles the beauty of who he is and all he has done throughout redemptive history. We know and submit our lives to the Story of God while also becoming familiar with each other’s stories and the stories of our culture.
Genesis 1:1-2; John 1:1; Psalm 1; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Deuteronomy 6:6-9
We submit to God and one another by practicing Active Listening.

We gather together to celebrate God’s extravagant blessings in Jesus.

We take time to rest, play, create and restore beauty in ways that reflect God and the work of the Gospel to others.

We intentionally bless others through words, gifts or actions.
Genesis 12:1-3; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 2:12 12 James 4:1-6 13 Luke 18:29-30

The GCM is not a meeting or a weekly event but the church, the people we have chosen to experience the love and mission of God within the everyday stuff of life. In the long-term we teach one another how to apply Gospel truth to our circumstance, encourage one another in the hope of Jesus, and share in the best and worst parts of life. We call this our Rhythm of Life, It's How We Live and we express it through the following Rhythms:
The Quintessential Reason for all of our ministry and our lives, Love is God.
The ability to articulate, understand, and apply the truths of the Gospel as well as the Gospel story to the everyday life circumstances of others.
The intentional and organic gathering of the Family of God in the everyday stuff of life, praying for a deeper affinity and desire to be with God and his people, as well as love for non-Christians.
Relational Evangelism is the process of introducing building relationship capital with others while they observe the Gospel Transformation within you and your community and sharing the Gospel message when opportunities present themselves in the everyday stuff of life. Anonymous Evangelism: the prayerful approaching of unknown individuals with the intention of sharing the Gospel
message with them.
The regular practice of Abiding in Christ, seeking to trust and rely on the person of Jesus in and for all circumstances while enjoying creation and people. Additionally, sabbath rest is found in the regular practice of the spiritual disciplines and seeking to discern one’s most effective mediums to
connect with God.
Campus Ministry on one College, Middle, and Elementary campus of Lake Worth, Sunday gathering for all ages under 18, and mid-week youth club which includes parental volunteers.
