VISION

A multicultural gathering of people committed to sharing the love of Christ with the world.

WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS THIS?

Impact Church is a place where you can be yourself. It is a place where you will be inspired by the words and songs that you hear, a place where you will be moved to reconnect with God.

WHAT IS IMPACT CHURCH 1.0 ALL ABOUT?

Our core values are: Prayer, Community and Economic Development, Compassion, Honesty and Service. We are committed to sharing Christ's love in ways that are relevant to your everyday life and helping you realize your God-given potential. We do this through a spirit-filled worship service that incorporates contemporary music, multimedia techniques and other bold, creative and spontaneous methods. Impact Church 1.0 is being built from the ground up to be especially welcoming to you, even if you have had little or no experience with church in your adult life.

WHO GOES TO IMPACT CHURCH 1.0?

Impact Church is for people of all ages, backgrounds and interests. If you want to experience God in a new way, if you want to develop your relationship with God, if you want to see God impact your community, even if you never attended church regularly, then Impact Church 1.0 is the place for you.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Come as you are. At Impact Church 1.0 we want you to be comfortable so that you can enjoy the worship service and concentrate on connecting to God. If you like to dress up, you can dress up. If you prefer more casual clothes, like jeans or sneakers, you can wear those too. Impact is about people seeking a real experience with God and we think that what you wear is secondary. More important is that we hope you bring an open mind and heart.

WHAT WILL THE SUNDAY WORSHIP EXPERIENCES BE LIKE?

At 10:00am and 12 noon each Sunday, we worship at Brown Middle School 765 Peeples Street SW Atlanta, GA 30310. Worship lasts about one hour and fifteen minutes. The atmosphere is casual, welcoming and contemporary. At Impact Church 1.0 you will find overhead screens where song lyrics are displayed so you can join in singing even if the song is new to you. Most importantly, you will experience worship where God will speak to you and your situation.

IS THIS A CHRISTIAN CHURCH?

Impact Church 1.0 is a Christian church connected to the United Methodist denomination. You can find out more about the United Methodist Church at www.umc.org and www.ngumc.org. We are deeply committed to the Christian faith and our Methodist heritage but Impact Church may seem different than other Methodist churches. We mix a modern style with some of the traditional practices. We are committed to sharing the love of Christ with the world and reaching all people who want to realize their God-given potential.

WHAT ARE THE CONNECTION GROUPS?

Our CONNECTION groups consist of 8-12 individuals who meet regularly with one another to discuss the Bible and current events, for spiritual exploration and growth, and to make a positive impact in the community. CONNECTION groups provide an opportunity for you to connect with a small number of people who are also on a spiritual journey. They are a safe place to explore the Bible and other spiritual material, to share experiences, ask questions, and to grow stronger as your faith develops. CONNECTION groups meet weekly and since there are many CONNECTION groups, there is sure to be one that fits your schedule.
