As I once heard, a consumer church is seen as a dispenser of religious goods and services.  People come to church to be "fed," to have their needs met through quality programs, and to have the professionals teach their children about God. 

A missional church is a body of people sent on a mission, who gather in community for worship, community encouragement and teaching from the Word in addition to what they are self-feeding themselves throughout the week.
 
A key distinction here is that "I go to church" is different from "I am the church."  May the trajectory of Johns Creek Presbyterian Church point us more and more toward the latter as mission become the heart and soul of what we are about.
 
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.   -1 Peter 2:9

Prayer for Today

Equip us, we pray, O God, with the courage to be the people you have called us to be. Send us into your world on a mission to be faithful in all things.  Amen.
