Sunday mornings at the Outpost consist of the four major elements used by the early church:
- The Gathering
- The Table
- The Word
- The Sending
A typical Sunday at the Outpost begins with a time of fellowship, we call the Gathering. It is a time to catch up and share what has happened in our lives while we’ve been apart, usually as we enjoy a delicious bite to eat. We see it not only as a time to just enjoy being with each other, but as a real source of encouragement and a part of our worship.
Following the Gathering we usually move to a time of worship in song, prayer, and the Table. This is a time to align our hearts with God. Sharing the Lord’s Table is something that we do each week because we believe it is how we proclaim the Gospel until Christ comes again.
During the teaching of the Word, we as a community agree to submit ourselves to God’s Word with hearts that have been prepared so that it can take root in our hearts and lead to transformed lives. In the context of our smaller setting, we have the opportunity to be active participants by giving input and asking questions during the teaching. This makes for a Sunday sermon that you can really engage in and be a part of.
At the Outpost, we believe that each one of us has been given a mission and a calling. Sunday mornings really are an Outpost to us in the frontier of our lives. Through the fellowship, encouragement, and teaching, we are more prepared to head out into the world and live out that calling. As our time together comes to a close, the Sending is our reminder that we are being launched into our spheres of influence, literally being deployed by our King, to spread the Good News.
