The Church Gathered
Our Missional Communities come together Sundays at The Upper Room in Downtown Statesville to remind, refocus and reshape our hearts and lives. We gather to celebrate all that Jesus has done and is doing in our lives.
Why We Gather
The Bible warns that we are a forgetful people. Thus, we remind each other regularly of our identity in Christ, worshiping Him through song, prayer, communion, and study of Scripture. We view Sunday Gatherings as a "commissioning service" to equip and empower our Missional Communities (MCs), that they might be sent out as disciples who make disciples.
What to Expect
Ephesians 4:1-16 tells us that we are one body with many different parts. When each part is working properly, the entire body is built up into him who is the head, Jesus Christ! To that end, we seek to study The Word as a whole body. Our sermons are often interactive, allowing the saints to build each other up in love. If you're a first-time visitor, no worries! No one is required to interact and you will certainly never be put on the spot to share.
The Oaks Kids
The Oaks values being a multi-generational family. With that in mind, we welcome all ages in our gathering! Parents may also choose to utilize the nursery for babies through Kindergarten. All other kids will stay in our gathering and are encouraged to participate. The Oaks ensures that kids are safe and well-loved by trained, adult volunteers during the Sunday Gatherings. We offer a secure space where kids can be kids! Furthermore, as a Body of Believers, we endeavor to come alongside parents (within MCs) to assist them in the everyday hard work of training up disciples in their own home!
