We are inviting anyone who wants to commit to following Jesus with Rhythm to do so during Public Worship on Sunday, October 7.
We believe that God calls us to commit ourselves not only to Christ, but also to following Jesus with a local expression of his Body, the church. Our community is one expression of the body of Christ in our city. When you ask how can I “be a part of Rhythm,” our first response is simply to say, “Come have a seat at the table. We’d love for you to take part in everything we do. If you want in, you’re in.” However, if the question you’re asking is “How do I live as a disciple of Jesus, commit myself to this community, and participate in the mission?” – then we invite you to consider becoming part of the Vowed Community.
Joining the Vowed Community is a great step to take if you are a follower of Jesus and see Rhythm as your “church home.” The Vowed Community are the people in Rhythm who are ready to say, “This is my church! I want to follow Jesus with these people and to invest in this community.”
Below are two documents that help to articulate more about Rhythm and what it means to join the Vowed Community:
Joining the Vowed Community 101 gives a basic overview of Rhythm’s history, purpose, the Rhythm of Life, and the commitments of being part of the Vowed Community. Everyone considering making this commitment needs to read this short document.
Joining the Vowed Community 201 is a deeper explanation of Rhythm’s theology, core convictions, leadership structure, and strategy. This is a much longer, more detailed document.
On Sunday, September 23 we are facilitating a Q&A luncheon for anyone considering joining the Vowed Community. The pastors will spend time sharing about Rhythm’s history, values, and purpose and answer any questions. If you want to attend, please email Lauren no later than Friday, September 21.
If you have made this commitment in the past and do not have any questions, then simply communicate with one of the pastors about continuing your commitment.
Whether you are renewing your commitment or joining for the first time, please confirm with one of the pastors of your final decision by Sunday, September 30.
DNA is deep inside each one of us – it’s what makes us who we are. Every person has unique DNA and so does every church. Rhythm has a unique story, identity, and purpose that gives us clarity about who we are but also what we’ve been called to do together in Miami.
Join us for this four-week series in September as we refresh our minds and hearts in what it looks like to be a disciple-making church together.
Following Jesus is more than believing the right things and having good information about God. It is a lifestyle of on-going formation by Jesus and in his Way.
Over the years, Rhythm has crafted or adapted various practices, postures, and tools to help people experience whole-life formation in Jesus. Many of these practices are fleshed out in our communal Rhythm of Life.
We become formed over time through our experiences, relationships, and habits. Spiritual practices and holy habits fueled with the energy of Jesus can shape and re-shape our hearts, desires, and lives to reflect Jesus more and more. Our job is to partner with Jesus in our own formation – to put in time, focus, energy, and love.
Each month, we will highlight a practice and/or tool to help you pursue deeper formation in Jesus and his Way. September’s practice is doing a Desert Day.
We encourage you to try out the practice, discuss the experience with others, and experience the life of God.
