We started in September of 2011, and we officially launched in September of 2012. We are much more than a building, a weekend gathering, a host of programs, or a religious organization. At our core we are a family doing life together with the gospel of Jesus as our center, and our mission is to extend the hope and life that comes only by the gospel.
Many people’s understandings of Jesus and the church are old, boring, irrelevant, hypocritical, and guilt-based, and to be fair, the church at large has done some things to earn that reputation. But the church and the Jesus we see in the Bible are far from these things. We want to help people discover that. We are far from perfect, but we hope to point people to someone who is.
We know trying a church for the first time can be uncomfortable and a little overwhelming. You have so many questions to ask, and it’s hard to know exactly where to start sometimes. We understand that, and we want to do everything we can to help.
Please take a look around our site. Hopefully you will find answers to most of your questions. If you still have questions or would like to talk, please get in touch with us.
Remedy is made up of people from diverse backgrounds, and we have people from a variety of religious/denominational traditions, including those with no real church history at all. More than a denominational label, we strive to place the truth of Scripture at the center of our beliefs, practices, and rhythms, and we believe that diversity in the body is a healthy thing.
Together we are striving to grow in our understanding and practice of what it means to follow Jesus and give our lives to the mission and glory of God. Click here to see our strategic partnerships.
We’ll admit that “Missional Community” is a strange term. The short version is it’s a name for our smaller groups. But it’s so much more than that!
Our vision for smaller groups within the church is that they function like gospel-centered families on mission. We want them to participate together in the mission of God, we want them to live as a community of God’s people together, and we want them to do both of these things throughout the week, not just at one weekly get-together. So we just decided to call them exactly what they are: Missional Communities.
Missional Communities gather on various nights and at various times. They are made up of diverse people living in the everyday rhythms of life together.
Our worship gatherings are laid back and focused on the glory of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sounds pretty fancy, but it simply means that everything we do, from singing, to catching up over coffee, to teaching, to praying, is geared around the truths of the gospel that we find in Scripture. We strive to display the gospel in ways that are clear and relevant to all, believing that the truth of the gospel is what changes our hearts and lives.
Our music is more modern in style and is filled with gospel-saturated words and phrases designed to direct us toward the kindness and grace of God. Our teaching is deeply rooted in Scripture and centered around the truth of the gospel. We also pray and celebrate communion regularly.
At Remedy we believe that everything starts in the home. Our kids are a blessing from God, and it is every parent’s job to teach their own kids how to love and follow Jesus. Our goal is to come alongside parents in that journey, so we structure what we do with our kids in mind.
For our youngest Remedy Kids, we have a nursery that begins the moment you arrive. For our older kiddos, we enjoy having them worship with us for a little while before they are dismissed to their Remedy Kids classes. We also have special family worship days, kids stories for special occasions, and activities for them to enjoy.
People dress in a variety of ways, and it tends to be on the casual side. It is not uncommon to see some in khakis and dresses and others in shorts. There is no expectation on what you wear, and people wear whatever they feel comfortable in. Please feel free to do the same.
That’s not a problem. We have a variety of spiritual and religious backgrounds ranging from lifelong church-goers to those who knew little about church until they found us. We work hard to make our gatherings relevant to everyone who comes while pointing intentionally toward the gospel and helping you connect with God. We want Remedy to be a place where you can ask questions, wrestle with the things of God, and find people to walk beside you on your journey.
Great. Please get in touch with us when you’re ready to talk. We look forward to hearing from you.
