MainStreet Journey

The Heart of MainStreet Church for Mound

Some passions of MainStreet Covenant Church….

We believe it is unacceptable that….

  • Mound hasn’t had a new church in over 60 years until this year.
  • Westonka teenagers and young families are not currently being engaged or reached effectively.
  • God’s people leave Mound in droves on Sunday to attend church elsewhere.
  • Many people view church as merely a one-hour Sunday morning experience.
  • Many churches are producing consumers of religious goods and services rather than active disciples of Jesus.
  • People don’t look first to the church when seeking an authentic, caring community.
  • Many people aren’t being challenged by the truth of God’s word or given the opportunity to make life-changing decisions in their faith walk.
  • Some churches could close or leave and the community wouldn’t even know it.

For these reasons and more, MainStreet desires to be a church committed to….

  1. A geographical mission field – We’re committed to reaching and serving Mound.
  2. Targeting Young Families & Teens – We want to reach people other churches aren’t.
  3. House Fellowship – Discipleship and faith formation takes place best in small community.
  4. Outreach & Evangelism – We exist to reach those outside our walls with the gospel.
  5. Making Disciples – We aim to turn religious consumers into active disciples of Jesus.
  6. God’s Word – We desire to love God’s Word more than the pastor’s preaching.
  7. MainStreet Presence’ – We desire to cultivate relationships and influence beyond walls of church into wider community.
  8. Moments of Decision – People need opportunities to respond to God’s work in their heart; people need to be challenged.
