What to Expect
Your First Visit
Welcome! We have no expectations of you on your first visit, and will not single you out. Our goal is for you to have some space in life where you can encounter the living God through prayer, worship, and teaching.
Join us our service at the Gym 1 at Seven Oaks Park, located at 200 Leisure Ln, Columbia SC 29210. We meet at 10AM. Our worship services typically last 45 minutes, and dress is casual, including jeans and shorts. We encourage you to arrive 15 minutes before the service starts. This will give you time to park and check in your children to RADIUS Kids prior to the service starting.
It is not good for man to be alone. (Genesis 2:18)
When God spoke these words, Adam lived in the garden of Eden – paradise still at his fingertips. Even though he walked with God daily, his joy was still incomplete without others to share it. Adam’s ache and desire for lasting relationships was not a result of the Fall or of sin – they were a core attribute of his perfect humanity.
In the New Testament, passages like John 13, Ephesians 4, Galatians 6 and Hebrews 10 develop the theme of relationships even further. We are told to love one another, forgive one another, bear one another’s burdens, and to spur each other on toward love and good deeds.
God made us for community.
Serve in Irmo
Serving has a variety of capacities, but all forms of true service bring glory to Jesus and grow our spiritual lives (1 Peter 4:10-11). Serving at RADIUS does not require that someone believe in order to belong. Instead it is our hope that serving at RADIUS would allow anyone willing to engage in our community to grow in their understanding of the Gospel and Gospel-community. Our volunteer teams do this in a variety of specific ways, but our goal is to invite our partners and guests into Gospel-community.
Serving together also forges community bonds. As we serve “should-to-shoulder” in community, we are refined and can grow in our spiritual walk. It is in the acts of service that we better refine and live out our personal and corporate missional elements of taking the Gospel to those in our RADIUS.
