The Journey of Belonging
At IAC, we don’t talk much about membership. Instead, we emphasize Belonging in the family.
Belonging is about relationships. There’s no “one way” to belong at IAC; each journey is personal, self-paced, and appropriate to where you are in your walk with God. At IAC, you belong when you feel like we’re your church home: it’s as simple as that!
Most people need some help navigating their way in a new church family. There are a few ways we can help you along the journey:
Sign up for IACNotes. You can get to know our family a bit better by signing up for our twice-weekly newsletter, IACNotes. The midweek version lets you know everything that’s happening at IAC, and the weekend version prepares you for worship on Sunday. Sign up here!
Monthly Welcome Dinner. Once a month on a Sunday night, the Connections Team hosts a potluck dinner for those who are new at IAC. This is your chance to meet Pastor Ken and others, hear about the church, and ask any questions you want (even the hard ones!). You can email email@example.com to get signed up for the next one.
Getting Connected: For many, the next step after a Welcome Dinner is diving deeper into our community. The most common areas of connection are:
Small Groups: We have many groups all over the city that meet together to share life, food, prayer, and study.
Mission Groups: Groups of IAC’ers band together to bless our city in specific ways.
Serving: We all have a part to play in the body, whether that’s KID ministry, serving coffee, reading Scripture, or something else!
Our Connections Team is always available to connect you to any of the church’s ministries that interest you. They are your best resource for knowing “how to get around” our family. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know more…about anything!
Affirming Belonging: Belonging Sundays
You can’t join a family without other members being involved. Every few months, we affirm and welcome those who feel like they newly belong at IAC. On these Newcomer Belonging Sundays, we introduce you to the congregation, affirm our mutual commitments, and pray you into this new season of life together as a family.
Once a year, we have a Church-Wide Belonging Sunday, when every member of the family re-affirms their sense of belonging. This is also the week we have our Annual Meeting, updating the family on what’s happening behind the scenes at IAC. We hope you can join us for this important week, usually held in February.
About International Anglican Church
At IAC, we want the gospel of Jesus Christ to define who we are and shape what we do. We are rooted in the sacred traditions of the church, passionate about the Scriptures, and utterly dependent on the Holy Spirit. We were planted in America by the Anglican Church of Rwanda and have been uniquely shaped by that relationship.
