What is Your life mission?

The Innovation family seeks to live out our relationship with God by finding ways to bless people, both as groups of believers and individually. Love of God and love of neighbor are intertwined in a missional understanding of church. Service to others is a fundamental spiritual discipline. And most important, when we are faithful at being the church, we point people to the Kingdom. Basically, the church’s mission is to partner with God in His redemptive mission in the world. Life is a mission trip!

ALL IN

The ALL IN ministry seeks to eliminate barriers that inhibit those with disabilities from hearing the gospel, and enable our brothers and sisters with disabilities to use their spiritual gifts so that they may share the love of Jesus with each other, the church family, and those who need to hear some good news. Want to learn about ministering to those with developmental disabilities at our church? We are in need of volunteers for our Buddy Program, Children's Events, "Just One Friend" night, Respite programs and Tim Tebow's "Night to Shine."  In order to serve in these ministries we ask that all of our volunteers attend an ALL IN training session to learn about what to expect and how to assist a person with disabilities.

the band

We love to worship God here at Innovation and one of the primary ways we do that each week is with awesome music from our band. If you'd like to be a part of the band you can contact Mark for an application. Most band members serve on a rotation, practicing Thursdays at 7pm, and playing on Sundays at 9 and 10:30am. 

the clothING closet

Each Sunday after service and at other times throughout the week our clothes closet opens it's doors for anyone who would like to come and "shop" for one completely free bag of slightly used clothing. There is always a need for servants who will come and help organize all of our donations to make the clothing closet a welcoming place for all our guests. Please contact us if you are interested in more information from Aimee, our wonderful Clothing Closet Team Leader. 

COMMUNITY DINNER

Every third Sunday of the month Innovation's Fellowship Hall is transformed into an incredible dining experience for those in need. A three course meal is prepared and served by volunteer cooks and servers, while our honored guests enjoy live music and friendly conversation. The Community Dinner is an awesome way to show the love of Christ in a tangible way to many who would never otherwise come to a church. 


WAYS TO SERVE

Set up, food preparation, food service, greeting, entertainment, and clean up. 


If you are interested in helping with the Community Dinner you can show up any third Sunday of the month at 1pm or connect with us for a little more information. 

COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY

Every week the Community Food Pantry feeds dozens of families in need right here in our own neighborhoods. There is a lot of work that goes into making this ministry a reality, and we would love to welcome you aboard in any way possible.


Monday Mornings

HOSPITALITY

You can be the first face someone sees when they pull into our Innovation parking lot. 

You can be the smile that welcomes them into our building. 

You can be the hands that greet them in the lobby. 

You can be the feet that guide them to a great seat in our auditorium.

You can be the arms that embrace them into our family. 


There are many different aspects to the hospitality team, but all of them focus on making our guests feel welcome and loved. If you're interested in being a part of this team or would like more information, please contact Valarie

HK MISSION

HK Mission operates out of Innovation Church, but is itself a national organization with groups all across America operating through churches and Girl Scout troops. They create free gift pouches specifically designed for boys and girls struggling through hospital stays. Some of their gift pouches are geared toward younger or older ages, toward cancer patients, and many other strategic groups desperately in need of a little kindness. Please contact Dawn, the founder of HK, if you are interested in working with this wonderful ministry to collect donations, organize resources, create gift pouches, or deliver them to the hospital.
