Our meeting on Sunday evenings serves as a time for extensive Bible study. Under the direction of Wade Osborn, a graduate of Abilene Christian University, various men of the congregation lead Sunday evening Bible classes for adults. Past Sunday evening series include “One Another’ passages in the New Testament,” “The Questions of Jesus,” etc. Class leaders encourage lively discussion and personal application to empower the Christian’s walk.
“They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.” (Acts 2:46)
One Sunday every month, the Jacks Creek church family meets in a member’s home to enjoy good food and fellowship. Meals vary from the traditional church potluck, to themed meals; Mediterranean and breakfast crepes being some of our favorites. Time spent in each other’s homes tightens the bonds of community. House church fellowship times include worship and discussion in an informal setting. For example, the sound of children playing in the yard accents a discussion of the Spirit at work in our lives.
There’s always plenty of food so we hope you’ll join us for the next House Church.
Approximately once a month the entire congregation will gather together to work on a service project. The focus is on meeting needs of those outside the congregation—doing so in an inter-generational way. Children often participate by decorating cards or wrapping gifts. Adults typically write cards of encouragement to those receiving the gifts. Others gather needed supplies for gifts or care packages. The goal for the “service” service is to prayerfully bring together young and old alike toward a common cause—to embody God’s call to action.
Previous “Service” Service events benefitted West Tennessee Children’s Home, the Carl Perkins Center, overseas military personnel, Heifer International, and the women in the Mobile Inner City ministry.
