Do you want to live a better story?
Do you ever wonder if there is more to life than what you are currently experiencing? Do you ever wonder if what you do or how you spend your time has any real meaning or significance? The worst days are those where it feels like you’ve just been going through the motions with nothing to show for your effort. No one wants to be remembered by how good they were at posting on Facebook or shopping. No one wants their only adventures to be those lived out in the fantasy world of TV and movies. There is a better story to be told than that.
Jesus’ earliest followers didn’t just learn from his teaching, they learned from his life. Jesus was a living, breathing example of the best possible way to live. He knew exactly who he was and exactly what his life was about. He had significant relationships, and he overcame even the most impossible challenge and suffering. Jesus made disciples by giving them an imitateable example in himself. He told a great story with his life. Some people call it the greatest story ever told… and he wants you to get in on the action.
At Come2Go we help people join in the greatest story ever told!
Here’s how we do it:
We invite people to COME AND SEE Jesus.
There is a great story in the Bible where Jesus meets an outcast woman at a well on a hot desert day. This meeting changed her life. It was like her identity had been hidden by the mistakes and failures in her life. When she met Jesus all that was lifted. She rediscovered who she was. She got so excited she ran back to her village and told everyone,
“Come see a man who knew all about the things I did, who knows me inside and out.” (John 4:29)
WE CHALLENGE PEOPLE TO COME AND FOLLOW JESUS.
We challenge people to come along with Jesus and learn to trust and follow him. In that same story, several people from the village heard what the woman said and came to see for themselves. Jesus had the same impact on them. They even invited him to stay for a couple extra days so they could learn more from him. The Bible tells us in those few days,
"A lot more people entrusted their lives to him when they heard what he had to say." (John 4:41)
We go and serve people… and we invite them to come and see Jesus too.
Philippians 2:1-4 (MSG) says,
"If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand."
We’ve learned the best way to invite people to come and see Jesus is to do what these verses encourage. We go and serve. We share God’s love by lending a helping hand in a variety of ways around the city.

Come And See
Every Sunday we come together in worship and share the story of Jesus… the greatest story ever told. We celebrate what God has been up to. We are honest about our ups and downs. We admit our mistakes and let Jesus set things right. He reminds us who we are again. He is the center of our attention when we get together on Sunday mornings. Come and see Jesus at one of our worship gatherings.

Come To Follow
It is really hard to follow Jesus on your own. The greatest story ever told is a story of family. That’s why we get together with small groups of people to look more deeply at Jesus' life. As a family we learn to read and understand the Bible. We pray for one another. We help each other out. We are learning to trust and follow Jesus together. Come be part of the family. We can help you get connected with a group.
