Welcome to our website!
We hope the information contained on these pages not only informs, but also instructs and blesses you. As you view these pages, you will gain understanding of our mission and appreciation for the people involved in ministry here.
Of course, there is no way to fully capture the heart and soul of this congregation without getting personally acquainted with the people and becoming involved in this ministry. So we are eager to welcome newcomers, knowing they will always be greeted with kindness and treated with grace.
For now, however, we introduce you to this congregation in this manner. Please read the articles and note the activities. Above all, we hope these pages reflect our conviction that the Bible is the final authority and that Jesus is Lord.
If you are considering a move to our ministry area, please know that you have friends waiting for you at Christian Church of Mountain Home. If you vacation in this beautiful setting of trout streams and lakes surrounded by beautiful bluffs and vistas, please fellowship with us around the Lord's Table.
When you come, you will find:
Happy In Serving,
Gene McCoy, Preacher
Saturday & Sunday February 13-14 the Show Me Christian Youth Home will be visiting CCMH for the weekend. The Family Life Ministry Group would like to have a gathering Saturday night the 13th from 6pm to 8pm. We will enjoy pizza, salads and dessert. This evening is meant for us all to get together and come to know the Show Me Ministry in a more personal and relaxed setting. Let's get out and support the Family Life Ministry and Show-Me Christian Youth Home!
The elders are excited to announce the launching of a new initiative that has already begun to impact the congregation positively. Bible Fellowship Groups are forming and preparing for the first of 39 sessions in the homes of the elders and staff members.
Each elder and staff member will host a BFG in his home every other week beginning the second Sunday in February. Groups will consist of 6-8 people. Consequently, a limited number will be included in the initial offering. But additional groups are planned to begin in early summer.
Several benefits and objectives are obvious. The Bible will be the basis of conversations, prompted by a simple lesson outline that will be provided for each participant in advance. Participants will increase in knowledge of the Bible and their ability to apply its teaching to life.
Beyond the educational and discipleship benefits are the blessings of fellowship and
community. We anticipate that, for some,
BFG will come to mean Best Friend Group. These will provide a comfortable venue by which to assimilate newcomers to our fellowship and to invite people from the community to participate.
Ideally, groups will be comprised of individuals of varying ages and stations of life — elderly, middle-aged, young adults, teen-agers and even mature children. Home-bound individuals who want to participate will be accommodated in creative ways.
Then there is the ministry aspect that is characteristic of small group dynamics. As the group becomes more like family, participants are eager to care for one another.
The 60-90 minute fellowships will include three basic elements: food, lesson and prayer. Most time will be devoted to conversation relating to the teaching and application of the Bible.
Most groups will meet in the evening. At least one afternoon schedule will be offered. But all will meet on Sundays. So we encourage everyone to reserve time every other Sunday for this opportunity to build up the body and to extend our reach into the community.
