MILL POND SATURDAY

WELCOME! PLEASE JOIN US FOR A VISIT

OUR WEEKLY GATHERINGS: We meet on Saturdays (5-6:30 p.m.) in a building we refer to as “Mill Pond” because it is located at 3 Mill Pond Lane Dates for the coming month are November 9, 16, 23, 30. On the first Saturday of each month, we unite together with the other Missional Communities for a larger worship gathering called UNITED. Learn more about our UNITED Worship Night on Saturday, December 7 (5 p.m.).

OUR PEOPLE AND OUR MISSIONAL FOCUS: We consist largely of families with elementary and middle school children, along with people in other life stages who seek to support our mission and impact our children. We have a passion to serve and bless our community by offering opportunities for parents to connect in environments like book clubs, parent support and training, health and fitness, etc. Please see other Missional Communities for individuals/families in other life stages, or for other missional focus areas.

WHAT TO EXPECT: At our weekly gatherings, you’ll enter into a group of 25 to 35 people. We’ll sing together using recorded music, explore the Bible through a video teaching from our pastor, and then apply what we learn through table discussions and prayer. Adults and kids participate together in all aspects of the gathering, so we do not offer nursery or kid breakout classes. There is a cry room available if needed (for nursery and kid breakouts, see the Canton Community Center Missional Community). Our family-style environment allows us to ask meaningful questions about the teaching and to share a meal together — as we often do. The size gives us the opportunity to build relationships, support each other as extended family, and team together as we seek to bless our community. See a video depicting Missional Communities here. Contact Geoff or Laurie Swanson if you have questions or would like to chat before you visit.

Likewise, help students grow in faith and meet the needs of the student population in our town. Our Missional Community also helps the underprivileged and widows in our community, and occasionally goes to Hartford to work with Church Army and serving the homeless.

We then explore God’s Word with biblical teaching from our pastor, followed by a time of discussion around tables. This family-style environment allows us to ask meaningful questions about the teaching and to share a meal together — as we often do.
