Dear Watermark Church family,

 

“You are members of God’s very own family… and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.”  Ephesians 2:19 The Living Bible

 

As followers of Christ, God has intended that we live out our journey of faith in fellowship with other believers. We are not made to live out our faith alone! That is why God designed the church. It is a place for you to fulfill God’s purpose for your life in a family of other believers.

 

Being in a fellowship of other believers means that we are FRIENDS. We encourage one another and share our life experiences together. We open our homes to one another. We support one another through the difficulties, stresses and trials of life.

 

Being in a fellowship means DOING MY PART. Each of us has a unique gifting and make-up designed specifically by God. As we use our abilities in the context of the church, we to contribute to the growth, health and joy of the other members, which brings God much glory and joy!

 

Being in a fellowship means that we have a KINSHIP with one another. In other words, we love other believers like family. We are devoted to one another in love, no matter what. As we experience the love of God’s family in practical, daily ways, we can flourish in our faith.

 

At Watermark Church, we value a commitment to fellowship in the body of Christ. Our New Members Orientation Class this coming Sunday, 2/17 will help you understand and take the next steps to fulfill God’s purpose for your life through fellowship with others in our church.

 

If you would like to become a member of Watermark Church, or learn more about the vision and ministries of our church, plan to join us this Sunday for our New Members Orientation Class and Lunch immediately following the morning worship service. The Watermark Church New Members Orientation Class will be offered this Sunday, 2/17, from 11:45AM – 1:00 PM. You will learn about the vision, beliefs, ministries and responsibilities of membership at Watermark Church. You will learn of opportunities for groups, growth and ministries. Pizza lunch will be served.

 

Did you know? ...during the months of November through February, our church facility is used five nights a week by various community groups. Now that is practicing hospitality!
