2015 ANNUAL REPORT


introduction:the nine

2|42 Community Church exists for the sole purpose of helping

people take next steps with God. We use this road map called

The Nine to help people continually move forward in three key

relationships on their walk with Christ.

CELEBRATE: Honoring God

Weekend Services are the front door to 2|42. It’s where most visitors

first connect to the church. It’s our goal that through worship all who

attend will experience God. Once someone accepts Christ as their

personal Savior we encourage them to take the next step of baptism

and begin the habit of a daily encounter with God through prayer,

scripture, and reflection.

CONNECT: Love Each Other

Our relationship with God is uniquely connected to our relationship

with others. Through Small Groups and Coaching relationships,

we can intentionally and consistently help each other through the

journey of life and discover more of God together.

CONTRIBUTE: Impact the World

As people draw closer to God through celebration and connection,

they’ll eventually contribute to the ministry through service and

generosity. It’s usually at the contribution stage that people really

begin to “own” the ministry and mission of the church

As you read through the 2015 Annual Report, you will see that God

has blessed us with growth, influence, and the ability to watch

more and more people move along the NINE, growing significantly

in their faith.

celebrate:baptisms

Maybe your next step is the ultimate next step to say YES to Jesus for the

very first time, to put your faith in Him and get baptized.

Maybe you’ve been walking with Jesus for a while but nobody talked to you

about baptism or going public with your faith? You can make that decision

today.

We believe baptism is the outward expression of an inward decision to

follow Jesus.

If this is your next step reach out to our Community Life team at

communitylife@242community.com to get your questions answered and

set up a time for us to celebrate your baptism with you.

celebrate:dailyencounter

God’s invitation, in the very beginning, was to know Him and

to walk with with Him as it still is today. God wants to be

close to us and just like any other relationship, we get closer

to God by spending time with him - in prayer and by reading

and meditating on God’s Word. Every weekday, we talk about

daily scripture readings on the Periscope app. Together, we

dive into the stories and meanings behind the verses, and how

they apply to our lives.

Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little

doubt that the Bible is the worlds best-selling and most widely

distributed book. A survey by the Bible Society concluded

that around 2.5 billion copies were printed between 1815 and

1975, but more recent estimates put the number at more than

5 billion.

COACHING GROWTH

SmallGroup GetCoached CoachSomeone

Seeking Coaching?

The best place to find a coach is in a

small group where people naturally

make connections with others who

have the wisdom and experience to

invest.

What is it Exactly?

Being coached is a process of learning

from and imitating someone who is

a little farther along on their journey

with Christ.

I’d like to Coach!

Coaching is about developing relationships

and taking responsibility for someone

else’s next steps. The role of a coach is

not only to help someone else know more

about God and scripture, but to become

more like God and what scripture calls

them to be.


contribute:team

We believe that God created everyone with a passion and a specific skill set that can

be used to do great things. Our reach as a church grows as people give back with

their time, talents, and finances. There are many volunteer teams that keep 2|42

Community Church up and running.
