Not Your Typical Church

Not Your Typical Church

AlexFirstFMC is not your typical church. We are very much non-traditional in just about everything we do. When we come together at the Lord’s Table, usually on the first Sunday of the month, it is a special time. As the elements are shared, the story of Christ is shared and all who are in attendance are invited to partake,not just of the elements but also of the saving grace of Jesus. We are also non-traditional for we do not “pass the plate” for offering. All are invited to give as the Holy Spirit leads them, by placing their tithe, gift, or offering in a basket located at the back of the sanctuary. For we want the focus to be on Jesus’ transforming power, not money. Even are small groups are non-traditional. Are focus is not on using program materials, but on intentional discipleship methods of using Scripture, tradition, experience and reason. This way people are free to discuss and seek answers to their questions of both a spiritual  nature and that is relevant to their life situations.
