xa_shadowWhat is Chi Alpha (Xa)?

The phrase Chi alpha (Xa) certainly isn’t something you hear in everyday language. It’s an ancient new testament Greek character abbreviation meaning CHRIST FIRST. So Xa (Chi alpha said phonetically) represents a mindset, a way of thinking that effects our attitude and outcome of our daily decisions and interactions with people. Using the phrase Chi alpha is a constant reminder of where I stand in life, with Jesus in the front leading the way and me in the back as His disciple. Just like John 3:3 tells us that “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less,” choosing “Christ First” every day is the best way to glorify God in all we do.

What happens on Sunday mornings?

We have a lot of great things happening on Sunday mornings here at the church, although a traditional “youth service” is not one them. Our 10:30am main worship service has begun to attract many of our student population, giving them an opportunity to serve or worship alongside their families which is a great thing. Because of this shift, we made the decision to no longer have youth on Sundays. The goal is to get students engaged in “grown up church” early so that they continue to attend as adults. Click Here to read the full letter from Pastor Eric regarding this change. Our main Student Worship Service will be on Wednesdays at 6:30pm beginning this fall.

 

 Xa Hillsong concertDo we meet during the week?

YES! Our main worship service, beginning in the Fall of 2016, is moving to Wednesdays at 6:30pm. This service will begin with worship by our student let praise team, followed by a message by Pastor Eric. Before each service, students have a change to hang out with their friends, or make new ones, and grab something from our snack bar.

 

 

 

 

Eric Preaching1Do we do any fun activities?

Throughout the year we do special events, such as sledding trips, Elitch’s, camps or something simple as meeting at the park for some games. All students that participate in events that are away from the church need to have a medical release form on file. You can download one by clicking on the button on the right.
