More than just a building, CMC – JAX is a community of faithful Christ-followers united to worship God together and to make Him known to others in a variety of ways.
We are a faith community that… appreciates, respects and honors our Reformation heritage. We are thankful for the sacrifices of those brave 16th century inspirational leaders. We embrace a balanced liturgy of faith and life.
We are a faith community that… embraces the life, power and vitality of the present-day working of the Holy Spirit in our church as a whole and in our personal lives.
We are a faith community that… acknowledges the marvelous contributions of our biblical ancestors, the Hebrews, and we love the truths and principles preserved in both Old and New Testaments. We love our Jewish roots and the dynamic realities of New Testament Christianity.
WHAT TO EXPECT
CMC – JAX is a small but growing beehive of activity throughout the week, but most people encounter us for the first time during one of our weekly worship services.
Our services at 10:00 a.m. Sundays are probably closest to what you may have experienced if you attended church when you were younger. It’s when you’ll typically find men and women dressed in their “Sunday best,” but no particular attire is expected or required. In fact, every 5th Sunday is a dress down, causal service. Come comfortable but modest.
You’ll want to arrive early to get oriented. Our Sanctuary, opens at 9:50 a.m. Many people arrive early to be seated, but our two large 65” smart screens make it easy to see what’s happening from anywhere in the room. Services typically last around an hour and a half.
CMS- JAX also gathers as a learning family on Thursdays (6:30 pm) and Saturdays (11 am). Dress casual and comfortable, coffee and light refreshments available.
Thursdays we are focusing on the Life and Ministry of Jesus Christ, including exploring the historical, archaeological, socio-political, cultural, backdrop to the New Testament.
Currently, we are studying the Gospel of St. Mark (verse by verse) to broaden our understanding of the life of Jesus the Messiah (The Christ; The Anointed One).
Everything typically wraps up by 7:45 p.m.
Saturdays we offer Messianic Torah Bible Studies beginning at 11:00 AM and wrapping up around 12:30. We are exploring the depths of the first Five Books of the Bible, Genesis- Deuteronomy, aka, Pentateuch, The Law of Moses, or simply the Torah.
We always have fresh coffee and tea available and light refreshments too. Come join us as we explore our Jewish roots.
