We were never intended to do life all alone, but rather in the love and company of God and each other.
That’s why at JCBC our strategy is to nurture healthy, vibrant, life-giving, connections in all we do.
In John 15, we are called to abide in Him just as the branches abide in the vine. What better image is there, to describe what church is intended to be? Branches intimately connected to our Life-source; but connected to that Source in a way that is shared, close, co-mingled and interdependent.
At JCBC we have specific ways for you and your family to GET CONNECTED. Here are a few…
Throughout the year, we schedule a number of guest meal events known as Let’s Eat! A guest meal is a great way to meet the entire staff and to give them a chance to get to know you better. The meal is on us and all ages are welcome. If you are interested in attending one of our Let’s Eat events, simply register below.
4D is a fully experiential newcomers orientation class. The purpose of this four-week class is to allow newcomers (guests and new members alike) to discover who we are at JCBC and how they may become fully engaged in a life of purpose and mission with us. Here is a look at 4D, at a glance…
We begin with the basics. Who is Jesus? How do we at JCBC understand the centrality of Christ as the heartbeat of all we are and all we do? This week is devoted to getting connected. We explore how to be “in the know” about JCBC life and how to be informed about all the life giving opportunities in the life of the church. We also explore just what makes us Baptists.
The continuing journey of forming the soul is the focus of week two. We explore all of the opportunities for bible study and spiritual growth – on Sundays and throughout the week – and how to plug in to them. We address the many options for every age group. We also explain the thought behind our programming design and vision for the future.
Mobilization is the focus of week three. We begin to truly engage the individual newcomer. In this class, newcomers will begin to explore their own God-given gifts and will discover the numerous and exciting ways their gifts and passions can be used in vital ministries here at JCBC. Never underestimate the power of a provoked imagination.
Week 4 is experiential. During this session, we will take tours of the campus, and will specifically visit areas of interest. If you are interested in music ministry, you will visit and observe the choir as they prepare for the day. If your interest is in nursery, children or youth, you will be taken to those departments to see, hear and feel what meaningful ministries are underway. Regardless, everyone will tour the entire campus.
For guests who are exploring JCBC, this class will enable them to make an informed decision about becoming a part of our community of faith.
For new members who have recently joined, this class will be a first and necessary step to fully engaging the life of the congregation.
