Ask Us About E.N.T.R.Y.

ENTRY is our guide to invite, include, and encourage new members, old members, unchurched and unaffiliated people to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, to be integrated into the full life of the church, and to meet their needs in body, mind, and spirit.
 
"E" = Evangelical  (Matthew 28:19-20)
"N" = Needs-Based  (Mark 6:35-37a)
"T" = Truthful  (John 14:6)
"R" = Ritual  (1 Corinthians 11:23-24)
"Y" = Yearning  (Psalm 86:11-13)
 
ENTRY's only goal is to connect people to Jesus Christ. We believe our church may not be the right fit for everyone; however, as you search for a place to belong, we feel called to help you find a family here or at another church. (This may sound counter-intuitive; however, we believe people need to discover their niche in this community, and when we commit to helping people connect and grow, we all become stronger.)
 
ENTRY is congregationally led. Anyone who understands and is committed serving a need in our community is encouraged to take the lead, develop and train volunteers, and to execute the plans and goals. When participants begin to express their passions, we will help guide those passions, and integrate it into ENTRY if it meets our vision goals as a church. When everyone gets to take lead in something, or church begins to bond and grows stronger. We will risk together, succeed or fail together, and grow together.

 

EVENTS

We are planning to begin a Boy Scout Troop in 2017. Parents and Youth (6th grade to 12th grade) are invited to attend an interest meeting, September 25 @ 7 pm, to see if there is any interest in getting a troop started in Mineral Wells.  Currently, there are two Cub Scout Packs meeting in Mineral Wells. Do not let personal finances prevent your sons from joining, we can help with the initial costs, and local fundraisers will help with the ongoing costs.

Missions

The church is currently undergoing its mission planning process. A few years ago, First Christian Church moved the Food Bank operations and equipment over to Mineral Wells Center of Life, consolidating food distribution in Mineral Wells, and relieving the church of a very fruitful ministry. In the end, we were serving about 700 families each month with a variety of groceries. Although sad to let this go and be successful elsewhere, we have been praying and asking God to show us a new direction to serve our neighbors. We know God still has a use for us to provide a variety of services. We hope you will cooperate with our efforts by sending us your prayers and ideas to better serve the people of Mineral Wells.
