JOIN A PILOT MISSIONAL COMMUNITY
Doxa is a church of Missional Communities (MCs). An MC is a family of servant missionaries living life on life, life in community, and life on mission in order to make disciples who make disciples. It’s more than a Bible study, it’s different than a community group- it’s actually how we see ourselves as the church of Jesus Christ.
Since MCs are the very core of who we are as a church, we believe it's essential for everyone to attend a Pilot MC. A Pilot MC is an 8-week journey, led by Jeff Vanderstelt, devoted to learning the fundamentals of MC life. Each week you will share a meal together, receive teaching over the material, and participate in group discussions to help learn and apply what God has in store for you this coming season. When you complete all 8 weeks of the Pilot MC, you will have the opportunity to be a part of an MC that is formed during the Pilot or join an existing MC.
We call it “Pilot” MC because, like the first episode of a new TV series, you are testing out the concept and trying to learn more. You can’t script it all out or pretend to know all the twists and turns the plot will take. Real life is like that, and so is life on mission. Life on mission means following the Holy Spirit, together, as he leads you each day.
JOIN ONE OF OUR SERVANT TEAMS
We believe Sunday gatherings are a part of how we engage in disciple-making throughout the week. Serving on a ministry team is another way to connect with the bigger Doxa family and enjoy the opportunity of serving and loving one another, all for Jesus. In general, our Sunday gathering teams serve every other week, and you serve with the same people each time to help build relationships and form another link of community within the church.

JOIN US FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL
Doxa believes that discipleship should be aimed at the whole person; head, hands and heart. To this end, we are excited to announce our attempt at this kind of discipleship, a 10-part event we are affectionately calling, "Sunday School.”
Sunday School will happen on the second Sunday of every month from 4-7PM (potluck style meal starts at 4pm, teaching starts at 5pm) in the sanctuary and will include worship, teaching from Pastor Justin, group discussion, Q&A and corporate practice of spiritual disciplines. The whole evening is designed to draw people nearer to Jesus, whether you are a nonChristian or a longtime follower of Christ. Register here.
Childcare is provided for children 2 years old to 5th grade, from 5pm-7pm, at a cost of $10 per child per Sunday School. Pleae note: you must register and submit payment each Sunday School that you would like childcare.
