BLESS represents our way of living like Jesus in our city.  We believe that each of us is called to BLESS the people around us.  We do this through living the five BLESS practices that Jesus modeled for us.

Below you can learn more about BLESS and even download an eBook that describes the BLESS movement in more detail.

WHO DID I BLESS TODAY? 

BLESS is an acronym that represents the 5 practices that Jesus modeled for us. This is how we believe God is calling us to BLESS our city:

BEGIN WITH PRAYER

We pray every day, asking God to give us “divine appointments” by putting people in our path who we can bless.

LISTEN

We listen to the needs of the people and places around us.

EAT

We share meals with others because eating often leads to connection and meaningful conversation.

SERVE

We serve others and serve with others to bring hope into hopeless situations.

SHARE YOUR STORY

We share our stories of how God is changing our lives and we invite others to find their own place in God’s story.


BLESS is one way that we accomplish our church's mission to help people find Jesus and live like Him. Ultimately, it's about our lifestyle. It's a simple reminder to be intentional about sharing the story God is telling through our lives.
