I go to Spout Springs Church , but what’s my next step?

Steps LOGO
We encourage people to get involved in 5 areas:
Worship at a service
Follow Jesus by building a relationship Him.
Serve in a ministry
Connect with a Group
Invite others to do The Steps
Think of this as check list. We have just 5 areas for you to consider jumping into. Starting at the top, what is one area you have yet to get involved in? That’s your next step!
Feel free to look around at our different ministries and see where you can get connected with your SSC community.

Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. Hebrews 13:15

Your first step at Spout Springs Church is to attend a worship service once a week.

Doing so gives you the opportunity to …

  • learn about who God is and what he has done
  • gain relevant teaching that you can apply to your life
  • discover a church of loving acceptance regardless of someone’s past

We know you may be worried and wondering what to expect, but there is no dress code, there is coffee you can take in the sanctuary, and we are pretty laid back.

We also have child care.

If you are already attending a service you may want to look at our next step … Follow.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27

Being a follower of Jesus is more than recognizing that He was good man. It means having a relationship with Jesus. This relationship is one characterized by the desire to grow and be like Jesus.

If you are interested beginning a relationship with Jesus – or you’re just not sure that you have a relationship with him – you can pick up one of our “Blue Bags” on Sunday morning. We offer them at the end of every service.

If you have accepted Jesus in the past but have not been baptized – the first step in following Him – you can contact baptism@spoutsprings.org to learn more.

Ready for the next step… Serve

God has given everyone strengths and talents. And God created you as a unique individual with a unique purpose. We want to help you find your God-given direction. Serving in a ministry in the church is an excellent way to discover how God created you and what you were created for.

We give two guidelines when looking for a place to serve:

  • Look for two places to fill: a place of passion and a place of need – a place of passion to keep the fire burning; a place of need because even boring but important  things need to get done.
  • “Test drive” a ministry – in other words, see if you like it. If you don’t, move on to something else guilt free.

Below is information and links for some of our ministries:

Worship Team

The band is a contemporary sounding blend of electric guitars, LOTS of drums and bass, and rocking vocals. We believe that music helps us prepare for the word and it allows for our hearts to become unified as we cry out and worship God TOGETHER. If you are interested in connecting with the Worship Arts team you can contact Pastor Jose by CLICKING HERE.

Tech Teams

Without this area of ministry, the band and Pastor Steve, (and anything else depending on live sound production or video) would not be able to function with the quality that God has called us to. Basically, its the people you don’t see help make a Sunday morning service happen.

We also have a computer networking team and a social media team so even if you aren’t able to serve on Sunday, there is an opportunity for you!

Connect with the Tech team by emailing tech@spoutsprings.org or by CLICKING HERE.

The Next Generation Ministry

The Next Generation Ministry would like to welcome you and your family to Spout Springs Church!  Our ministry is here to be a partner in your Walk with Christ by providing biblical teachings, offering encouragement and supporting the development of parent-child relationships.

The Next Generation Ministry offers classes for ages Babies-5th grade on Sundays, and for 6th-12th grades on Fridays from 6:30p-9:00p.

Our “Orange” curriculum focuses on the Church and Family working together for a greater impact on future generations.  For more information about the curriculum, please visit www.whatisorange.org

Please let us know if you have any questions about the ministry, our curriculum, or how you can volunteer in leading our young Christians!  Contact emma@spoutsprings.org.

You can check out what’s going on with the children and youth HERE.

Deacons

Under the leadership of the pastors and elders, we serve the local church body by helping to meet the physical needs of others in our community.  Some examples of the types of needs we address are making minor household repairs, providing meals during times of grief, and conducting home or hospital visits for the ill.  The Deacons work through our “Hands and Feet” ministry to connect an identified need to a member of our Church with the talent, know-how, and passion for the requested service.

Please contact deacons@spoutsprings.org for opportunities to serve, or for assistance.

Women’s Ministry

We have inreach and outreach opportunities as well as fellowship time with games and crafts.  Contact women@spoutsprings.org for more details.

Missions

If you are already serving you may want to look at our next step… Connecting.

Jesus Created the church to be like a body with interconnected and interdependent parts. Joining a connection group where you can connect and grow with other believers is essential.  The bible says: ”Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a part of it”. 1 Corinthians 12:25

We want to help you find people with whom you can share your life and your unique Jesus journey.  Our goal is to provide groups of various genre where people feel free to explore and enhance their Christian faith in an atmosphere of friendship and mutual regard.

To explore a list of connection groups CLICK HERE.

We Have Groups In The Following Genre
Men – Women – Singles – Everyone Welcome – Marriage and Family –
Leadership – Hard Core Bible Study

To sign up for a connection group email the connection group leader or contact Pastor Tim at: tim@spoutsprings.org

We also occasionally have a virtual connection group for anyone that can’t make it in person!  Contact pastorsteve@spoutsprings.org for more details.

If you are already connected you may want to look at our next step… Invite.

I like to describe inviting others as “tapping shoulders.” The reason people come to Spout Springs and connect is because you invite them to do so. 75% of the people that come to church attend because they were invited by a friend or relative.

Some ways you can involve others are inviting someone to the connection group you attend or asking someone to “test drive a ministry” with you. The point is that it doesn’t need to be scary. Often someone is simply waiting for someone like you to help them with their next step.
