At Emmaus we wish to cultivate an understanding of membership that does justice to both the actual benefits and the responsibilities that are inherent with church membership. Membership is neither casual nor selfish, but is instead an intentional, selfless giving of oneself to a church family.
I believe that God has uniquely gifted Emmaus members with the ability and the desire to immerse themselves in a community like NKC in order to see it flourish while also reaching their own communities throughout the week.
In all of this, we want every person who participates in our liturgy to walk away deeply impressed by Jesus.
We want for our corporate gatherings to, in a way, be a microcosm of the Christian life.
At Emmaus, we don’t want to do anything absent-mindedly; we want to have an explicitly biblical/gospel-drenched reason for everything that we do.
He is a gracious God who provides what he requires (a means), and he is a holy God who cares about how he is worshiped.
Emmaus Women’s Mentoring is just the beginning because this is not just a programmatic women’s ministry idea; this is a missional movement aimed at seeing God glorified and churches multiplied by declaring and displaying the gospel.
Listen to the sermon from last Sunday on iTunes or on our website.
Today was a wonderful day of worship, word, and fellowship. I am always blessed to see you stand around and engage each other in conversations long after the services are finished. Your genuine love for each other is breathtaking.
On August 28th we have the opportunity to gather together, as those who are covenanted to each other, to celebrate all that God is doing among us!
