The Common

“ They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.” - Acts 2:42 CSB

Our church is a group of misfits who desire to learn, fellowship, pray, and eat. Are we a perfect church? Absolutely not! In fact, we are a toddler church; which means we have a lot of learning and growing to do. We are falling over a lot, spilling things, and we will even whine about our circumstances from time to time. However, just like a toddler, we never allow anything to keep us down. We get up! We keep trying! We keep working! We are learning! We are gaining strength! We are most certainly growing!

Since September 2017, we have experienced:

  • 30 baptisms

  • 15 baby dedications

  • “Common Love” (feeding the community) on Good Friday and Christmas

  • 164 people are committed to our church as members

  • An average of 107 for Sunday attendance

  • An average of 82 viewers on Facebook live per Sunday

  • The launch of our youth ministry this year with the first outing being a trip to the Civil Rights Museum

  • Clothes giveaways

  • Supporting efforts towards families through feeding and benevolence at our host school, Cherokee Elementary

  • Feed Melrose High School Football team after their games

  • Faithfully committed to raising up leaders and disciples through the Downline Institute with 1 graduate and 7 students currently enrolled.

We strongly believe that the goal of planting The COMMON was and still is to live out the call to man by pressing on the heart of individuals, to impact the lives of others; which leads to a sincere desire to change, to leave a true imprint of the Gospel always pointing others to Christ, and lastly to influence the creation of new images (identities) within the community with hopes that all members will become disciples of Jesus Christ and hold all things in COMMON!

“Now all the believers were together and held all things in common.” - Acts 2:44 CSB
