WHAT ARE PEINE FAMILIES?
At Peine Ridge Church, our mission is to “glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ in our city and throughout the world.” We believe the most effective means of staying on mission and pursuing our vision is through authentic, gospel-infused community.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 (ESV)
As part of the church, we are called to:
- love one another (John 13:34)
- serve one another (Galatians 5:13)
- bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2)
- pray for one another (James 5:16)
- encourage and build up one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Peine Families are smaller groups of people, knit together by the gospel for the spiritual transformation of our members and the communities in which we live. Peine Families are a primary avenue for care and discipleship within the church body. (Eph. 4:12-16)
When Do Peine Families Meet?
Peine Families typically meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30pm. However, some Peine Families may meet on different days depending on the specific needs of that family or special events.
What should I expect?
Peine Family gathering rhythms vary from group to group, but typically they begin with a time of fellowship followed by a time of “family worship.” (This is where the children are taught a Bible lesson prepared by the leader or one of the dads.) Then those gathered often sing songs and have a time of teaching, sharing, and prayer, or they may focus on a single one of these elements for the evening. Whether you are a mature Christian or you’ve never stepped foot into a church building, we will endeavor to ensure you find a Peine Family where you feel welcome and loved.
What Happens Outside a Weekly Peine Family Gathering?
When we aren’t with our children or our spouses, we don’t cease being a family. If a Peine Family member is sick, the family visits them. If there is a financial need, the family contributes. If there is an issue of sin, brothers and sisters confront each other in love and seek to resolve issues.
