Want to connect with us? We have several places you can plug in!
Sunday Morning Services
This is the “main event” at Countryside. It’s where we all come together as a community to do what the church has been doing for the last 2,000 years. We worship God together through music, prayer, and the sacraments (communion and baptism). We hear a message taken from the pages of God’s Word. We have a high view of the scriptures, but our style is casual. Wear your jeans, grab a cup of coffee and relax. You won’t be singled out, and while we do enjoy singing together, there’s no pressure to participate – you’re welcome to sit back and observe.
Christianity Explored and Life Explored
If you’re just beginning your faith journey, the Christianity Explored or Life Explored series is a great place to start.
Christianity is all about the person of Jesus. And everything we know about him is revealed in the Bible, both the Old and New Testament. Christianity Explored and Life Explored help you grasp the Bible’s message about Jesus by exploring some of its content.
Christianity Explored gives you the opportunity to explore what one book in the New Testament, The Gospel of Mark, has to say about Jesus—who he is, why he came, and what it means to follow him—and why the good news about him is the best news you’ve ever heard.
Life Explored gives you the opportunity to explore some of the Old Testament to see how it points to Jesus, how Jesus makes sense of the Old Testament, and why Jesus’ life is the best gift that God could give you. Life Explored shows how our deepest desire for happiness can only be satisfied in Jesus.
Christianity Explored and Life Explored give you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. Each series runs for seven weeks and we offer them several times throughout the year. Click the links at the bottom of our web page to watch a short video introduction to each series. If you’d like to be notified when the next series is starting, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
