What is Simple Church?

October 12, 2014

People all over the US are asking this question:  “Is there a way to simplify church”?  Day-to-day life seems as complicated as ever, but does church life have to be complicated?

We invited our friends Jim & Teresa Crothers, Vineyard pastors from Texas, to share about their experience of converting from “traditional” church to a “simple” church model.

You can read more about their experience here.

Feel free to listen for yourself here:

Session #1–What is Simple Church?

Session #2–Q & A Session

If you would like more information about the newly forming KC Area Simple Church Community, please send us an email at: raytownvineyard@gmail.com.


What is “Simple Church?”

October 6, 2014

We do church where people do life … at the university … at the business office … at Starbucks … at someone’s home.

We share a meal together … We worship together … We have a conversation about the scriptures … We receive some prayer … We talk about loving our neighbors

We see ourselves as those ‘sent’ to be missional [missionaries] to our communities / neighborhood / city.

Our model is Acts 2:38-39 a simple / organic way of doing faith.

We look to multiply – where as traditional churches look to simply add – we look to multiply. The 2’s become ‘4’s the 4’s become 8’s.

By keeping it very simple – every actually gets to play!


Worshiping through the Psalms–Psalm 118

August 3, 2014

psalm 118

This week, we took a look at Psalm 118 and received a message on Worshiping through the Psalms.

If you would like to listen to the message, just click here.

Here are the main thoughts we explored together:

  1. Would God like to meet with you today or tomorrow?
  2. When?
  3. Will you accept the appointment?
  4. Reasons that people read the Bible
  5. God gave the Bible primarily to share His character and personality with us.
  6. God’s steadfast love is known as his “chesed“.
  7. God has made every day. We respond by rejoicing and being.
  8. God is MY God—the personal God.

This week, we took a look at Psalm 91  and received a message on Worshiping through the Psalms.

If you would like to listen to the message, just click here.

Here are the main thoughts we explored together:

 

1. God invites us into a Secret Place.

Psalm 91:1 He who stays in the secret place of the Most High will be covered by God Himself.

 

2. God’s promises are for the ones who stay in the Secret Place.

Psalm 91:9 You have moved in with God, and you have accepted His covers.

 

3. God breaks EVERY chain in the Secret Place.

Psalm 91:14 Because he clings to me in love, I will deliver him. I will protect him, because we share ourselves intimately.

We ALL Need Healing…We ALL Need a Savior

Dean Greer shared a very significant message with us today.

Here are some of the key points:

“Each person has a story to tell”.

“There are very few voices in the world that will call forth the truth”.

“Our authority comes as we allow ourselves to be identified as having a need for a Savior…and the truth is that we ALL need a Savior, every single day”.

To hear the whole message, please download here.

Dean Greer is the National Coordinator for Living Waters, USA. Having been involved in healing ministry for the past 20 years,Dean has trained leaders around the world to incorporate the healing programs of Desert Stream Ministries within the local church community.  His ministry to the sexually and relationally broken has come as a result of his own journey out of homosexuality. A native of San Francisco, Dean now lives in Kansas City, MO with his wife Chrystal and 6 year old son, Jeremiah. They are active members of the Vineyard Church of Overland Park, KS.
