This summer, we gather every other Sunday like a family reunion. Find us at 10:00am at the Karis Baptist Activities Building off of W. Worley at 606 Ridgeway Ave, Columbia, MO 65203 (see in Google Map here). Come early to enjoy refreshments and relationships!
It is a joy to provide our children with age-specific instruction to meet their needs, spiritually and in creating community around the Gospel for them at their age. From roughly 11:30am-12:30pm during our Sermon and discussion times, our children are taught in the upstairs classrooms in LegacyKids.
We currently offer two classrooms: 0-3 years and PreSchool – 3rd Grade. 4th Grade and older are drawn into our discussion groups to care for and help encourage participation with the whole family.
LegacyKids is overseen and led by Rebekah Teller, a Montessori school teacher by trade. She is a passionate teacher with an attention to detail, a deep care for the whole family, and a lover of developing children where they are. Her team of volunteer teachers and aids lead our children each “family reunion” Sunday.
We meet at The ARC (1701 W. Ash St) every other Sunday from 10:30am-12:30pm.
Parking is free. Once you’ve entered the ARC, take a left by the main desk. You will see our Welcome Table down the hall. We meet in the main meeting rooms of the ARC.
Sunday’s are like a family reunion, we like to say. As the Church, we gather together on Sundays (and other days) after being “scattered” around the City in our respective jobs, neighborhoods, families, and callings.
Sunday is a time to join in worship through singing, dancing, reflection, hearing the Word, sharing food, carrying one another’s burdens in prayer, and enjoying growing relationships. We start at 10:00am with roughly an hour of worship filled with an open environment to prophetic words, words of encouragement, and Spirit-led breaks to respond to the prayer needs of the church family. After sharing announcements about what’s going on, our kids 0-3 + PreSchool to 3rd Grade have age specific teaching while we enjoy roughly an hour of preaching, discussion, and interaction.
Most Sunday’s include breaking down the entire room further into discussion and dialogue. We believe knowledge left unapplied is not valuable. Providing opportunities to share what we are learning, process, and give away to others is extremely important to our culture as a Church family.
These in-home groups are led by various leaders beyond our pastoral team. Each Small Group is like a “nuclear family”. These groups spend time both in group and out relating together. They seek to help meet each others needs physically and spiritually. Beyond meeting around the Word, prayer, and fellowship, these groups move together on mission to serve our neighborhoods and nations.
We live this out by gathering 1-2 times a month in homes to study the Word, break bread, and pray.
We live this out by gathering one of our times a month for the sole purpose of fellowship. This may be a game night or going to a kid’s sporting event in the group. The point is that we actually like spending time with one another and growing relationally as a Family.
We live this out by using one of our monthly gatherings as Small Group to serve our neighborhood and city in an intentional way.
