What if we told you that you can have a group of people where you're truly known and loved. People who encourage you, pray for you, walk through rough times with you, celebrate victories with you, and grow with you. A group of people that you can do life with while carrying out the Great Commission together. Sounds awesome doesn't it? Our HOME Gatherings provide an environment for this to happen. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why HOME Gatherings exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. At COM, we like to say it like this; "We're Better Together".
The purpose of HOME Gatherings is to see every believer connected, equipped, and mobilized to bring Heaven to Earth in their areas of influence. (“on Earth as it is in Heaven” – Matthew 6:10) HOME Gatherings operate as an extension of our Sunday services carrying the same pattern of fellowship, praise and worship, the teaching of the Word of God, powerful prayer, and the demonstration of the Holy Spirit. HOME Gatherings are also designed with evangelism and discipleship in mind. Our passion is to see every believer equipped for ministry, and mobilized to bring in the harvest of souls. HOME Gathering are location based for this reason. We want to see you join with other COM family members from your neighborhood/area of influence in reaching the people around you with the Good News of Jesus. Together we're pushing back the kingdom of darkness, and advancing the Kingdom of Light in our neighborhoods.
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
- Acts 2:42-47 (NIV)
