Know God

Attend the Gathering
Here at Flourish Church, we believe that being in the presence of God is a place where lives are transformed! Therefore, not only do we serve Jesus, but we take time to attend a gathering because we want to hear the gospel, enjoy the body, and experience transformation.
Serve the Gathering
God not only wants us to enjoy his presence, but he wants us to create spaces where others can experience it as well. Since he has equipped us each with a spiritual gift to serve the church, we put them into action so more people can meet God!

Bible Reading
The Bible is the absolute foundation of our faith, and it holds everything we need. It helps us grow in spiritual maturity, giving wisdom on navigating life.

Prayer
There are some things that God will not do unless his people pray! Prayer is powerful because it asks for heavenly intervention in earthly situations.  

Sabbath
Sabbath is a twenty-four-hour period where we take a break from our work to rest, reflect, and participate in activities that bring delight while we enjoy the presence of God. It helps us recharge when experiencing mind, body, and soul fatigue. In addition, it's an invitation to be free from the exhausting "hustle culture" to rest in Christ's finished work!

Find Freedom

Join a G3
G3s are "Gary Growth Groups" of 5-15 people who meet in person or online to build deeper relationships with others heading in the same spiritual direction. God uses the environment to help us flourish and experience freedom from old hurts, habits, and histories through G3.

Lead a G3
God designed people to grow in their faith in the community. By leading a G3, you'll take inspirational and essential steps in your faith by exercising your leadership gifts and helping others grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Fellowship
Following Jesus is not only an individual activity but a team sport! That's why we believe it's important that you have quality time with other Christians. It deepens your faith and provides a community you can rely on during difficult times.
Accountability
Christian accountability requires honesty with others and ownership of your actions without making excuses or blaming others. Accountability, however, is essential because you need people to encourage you to grow in your relationship with God and others.

Forgiveness
One of the hardest things for us to do is forgive other people because it can be challenging to let go of resentment, hurt, and offense. But this is essential for a relationship with Jesus because as he has forgiven us, we must let go of our bitterness towards other people.

Repentance
One of the hardest things for us to do is repent when we have wronged a brother or a sister. But it is essential for a relationship with Jesus because he cares how we treat others who have been created made in his image. When we are in interpersonal relationships between brothers and sisters in Christ who share fellowship with us on a regular basis in a local church setting, we will be continue to be offended. Repentance is one of the ways we preserve that relationship.  

Discover Purpose

Attending G4
G4 (Gary Growth Group Gathering) is where all of Flourish Church’s G3 Groups gather to explore and share in fellowship. It's an environment where we all learn about the Bible and go into deeper conversation about our faith and everyday life.

We can develop purpose when the Bible, Body, and Culture are explored on a deeper level.


Developing Your Purpose
At Flourish, we can help you learn your purpose. But to truly flourish, you must explore your interests, examine your history, listen to feedback, and receive coaching. This could include reading books, going to conferences, learning from mentors, and discovering ways to improve your skill set.

We all have abilities that lay dormant on the inside, but once you find them, it's your responsibility to sharpen them to be the best you can be.

Make a Difference

Serving with a G3 Team
Our G3 groups do more than fellowship together, they serve together. When we serve alongside people, we develop strong relationships with each other while discovering and enhancing our purpose.

Boots on the Ground Love
Join us on the 4th Sunday as we hold an abbreviated service and then head into the community to serve. We want to understand and support the needs of neighbors.

Start a business
We believe entrepreneurship is one of the greatest ways to reach a community. Creating space for disciples and reaching the world. As a church we are behind you, supporting the calling on your life.

Evangelizing
There is no mission more important than sharing the message of salvation, forgiveness, and grace through Jesus Christ. Having faith in His good news is the way to salvation. He commanded us to evangelize as a meaningful step in making disciples of Christ.
Serving
By serving, we show the love of Jesus. Some need to hear the gospel, others need to see and experience it. At Flourish, we encourage the church to speak up in areas of social injustice, but to use our time, talent, and treasure to care for the hurting, destitute, and marginalized.

Giving
God so loved the world that he gave his only son! Our salvation is predicated upon His act of generosity. Giving our best and first fruits honors God—the prioritized order of our generosity matters as much to God as the amount.

Inviting Others into Your Life
Few things can potentially change someone’s life more than inviting them into yours! When you ask them to do life with you, you're welcoming them to experience the grace of God.  One invitation can impact their eternity.

But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as Holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect. 

(1 Peter 3:15)

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

(Eph. 2:10)

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

(Eph. 4:31–32) 

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day approaching.

(Heb. 10:24–25)

And by the seventh day God had finished the work He had been doing; so on that day He rested from all His work. 

(Genesis 2:2)
