A Strategy to Grow

 A – Activate


God has given each of us a unique gifting, a spiritual fingerprint. Every gift is needed and should be activated. At Innovation we start with an “activate conversation.” A facilitator from our church family is ready to guide you through some simple questions. We want to know what you would like to see happen in your life in terms of spiritual and personal growth. We’ll meet with you on campus, in your home, at a coffee shop, wherever it’s convenient. Based on your responses we’ll make some suggestions regarding resources at Innovation and in the community for personal growth, spiritual growth and developing your life mission as a follower of Christ.


B - Belong

We all need time to debrief – to examine what we’re learning from the perspective of our faith and personal experiences. This is why a small “Life Group” is so important. Each group is multi-generational and focuses on Sunday’s teaching. What did you take away from it? What are a few things you will do with what you heard? We also need feedback on our life mission. As you’ve been blessing people, what have you noticed about them, about God and about yourself? And we all need a spiritual family to discuss life with – our challenges and victories.


C - Cultivate

Faith feeds on the Word of God because the Word is what faith trusts. Where trustworthy words are not present, faith has nothing to bite into. That’s the nature of faith. It exists by what it trusts. If we do not feed it with a substantial diet of life-giving truth, it will shrivel. Your facilitator will also follow-up with you, offering resources for personal and spiritual growth. These include: seminars, workshops, life groups, classes, study groups, personal coaching and community opportunities. All resources focus on biblical principles applied to your personal life experience and challenges.

The simple Gospel

Can the Gospel be understood through one or two biblical verses? Here are some verses that get pretty close.


"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23


“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17


“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith.”  Romans 3:23-25


“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” Romans 10:9-10


“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. ” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4


“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” 1 Peter 2:24-25

ikidz

iKidz is the children’s ministry of Innovation Church.


From start to finish, we strive to make your children’s time with us a great experience. All of our volunteers are screened and trained to guarantee your child the best experience possible. We divide our children’s ministry into four separate environments so that we can engage your child at his or her level.


The Cozy Nursery - for infants and crawlers

The Ark - 1 and 2 year olds

Safari - 3 to 5 years old

iMotion - K to 6th grade


We seek to make this your child’s favorite day of the week, so we use skilled volunteers, technology, fun activities, and excellent environments to communicate the timeless message that God loves us and wants to have a relationship with us. We believe this makes iKidz a place your child will be begging you to bring them back to each week!


Our great iKidz ministries are available Sunday at 9 and 10:30am and Wednesdays at 7pm.
