Fellowship of Believers
Did we mention that we enjoy this community of Christ-followers? We pray together. We work together. We laugh together. The Pointe Church feels a lot like a family...not perfect, but also not perfectly awful! We want to glorify God in every way that we can. Worship. Service. Fellowship. And we would be delighted to welcome you in the family. Join us for worship on Sundays at 10:00 AM.
Summer, 2015. A small congregation found itself without a Pastor and with limited resources with which to attract a new one. Nearby, a church-planting couple continued to search for a facility from which to launch their dream, now more than three years in formation. A Facebook message. A telephone call. A question: “What if you brought your vision for a new church plant right here to Mount Juliet?” Over the next few weeks, meetings with the Pulpit Committee, the church boards, and the entire congregation ultimately led to a vote to call Rich & Sherry Tiner as Pastors and to embrace their vision for “something new” at Mt. Juliet. In those meetings, the Tiner’s had shared their vision for a new congregation— The Pointe—that they conceived while on staff at The Grace Place in Hermitage. A vision of a church that does not spend so much time “doing” church that they don’t have the time or energy to “be” the church. A congregation that simply follows the New Testament model for the church—living out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission: GC2! Interestingly, Rich had been the Pastor of the existing congregation from 1995 until 2001. “So many long-time friendships had been made while we were there in the late 90s,” Rich recalled. “God had done some wonderful things through that congregation for many years, so it seemed appropriate to bring the vision for The Pointe there and share it with a congregation we really loved.”
Warm, Contemporary Music
At The Pointe Church, we don't equate worship with music, but music is an important expression of our worship. It's not a performance. It's not a production. It's one of the ways that we express to the Lord and to each other that we love Jesus. Oh, you'll hear beautiful harmonies, and we hope the songs sound great, but more than anything, we want music to be a vehicle that takes us into the Presence of the Lord.
The Pointe Church is not the biggest church in Wilson County. We may never be. That's not our primary focus. Our primary focus is on loving God and loving people. We hope to do both in measurable ways. We love God by striving to be obedient to His Word. We love people by striving to meet needs in our community...outside the walls of the church. We support a variety of ministries, including Camp Overton, the Mt. Juliet Help Center, and the Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center. We even reach out in ministry to places like England, where we help fund a national church development project for the UK.
Practical, Compelling Bible Teaching
It seems that life isn't as simple as it once was. In many ways, everything seems to be turned upside down. Complicated. This is not the time for shallow, trivial messages that simply amuse us. It's the time for digging deeper in God's Word. Oh, we laugh...and we cry...and we seek...and we follow. To lead fulfilling lives of purpose in these difficult days, we find direction in God's Word. Really. Practical...Compelling...Unafraid. At The Pointe Church, we take God's Word very seriously.
