Core Verse: Romans 1:16 New Living Translation (NLT)
16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.
Music is an effective way to glorify God and bring people closer to Him. We believe that music is one of the most powerful means of communicating God’s love and grace. We also see our worship services as a time to celebrate! So you will find the majority of our music to be high energy, dynamic, and relevant.
God lives in the praises of His people, and it’s our desire to experience His presence through our worship and help people connect with Jesus in an authentic way. We strive for excellence in our music, vocal and dramatic presentations so that God is magnified in our worship.
The Worship Team at Skyline plays a vital role as we seek to Love God, Love Others, and Make a Difference.
One of the biggest misconceptions in church life is that people assume every area of service in church is covered and that no other people serving are needed. Nothing could be further from the truth. We’ve been growing since day one so we’ve always been intentional about creating teams and helping people get involved in building Skyline Church. Why? Because it’s not a one-man show or a few key people that make it happen. It’s all of us together for the glory of God.
We believe that “A great church is not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifices of many.”
We love getting others involved because the Bible teaches us that we all have gifts (1 Peter 4:10; Romans 12:6-8; 1 Cor. 12:4-11) that God has deposited on the inside of us. There are so many areas within our church that need people serving as well as new areas we’re continually developing. You getting involved gives you the opportunity to use what God has put in you for the benefit of others.
The heartbeat of our church is all about serving others. Jesus modeled this for us in His own life when He said, “…I came not to be served, but to serve and give my life…” (Mark 10:45) Our culture is passionate about serving people, making a difference in this world and using our gifts to get involved in the life of Skyline. There are plenty of areas (and new ones developing) where people are needed and can serve.
All of us were created by God to make a difference in the life of another. God has a place for you where your unique abilities and passions can touch the lives of others.
Purpose: To connect people to Jesus and other members of Skyline and provide a
network where long-term relationships can be developed.
In a small group you have the opportunity to:
- Make new friends who will love and accept you just the way you are
- Learn more about the Bible
- Discuss with others how to integrate your faith into everyday life
- Discover God’s answers to your tough questions
Any time a group of friends commit to gather together to share their lives, pray, and discuss the Bible along with the life application of the previous weekend’s sermon, good stuff is bound to happen.
Our connection groups operate on a 3 semester system consisting of Spring, Summer and Fall. Each semester stands on its own and lasts from 10 – 12 weeks. Opportunities to join a connection group are offered during the months of January, May and September.
