Though churches are organic in nature, they require a certain amount
of organized structure for effectiveness.
We like to think of our Sunday morning gathering as a base camp where we come in, get equipped, encouraged, and ready to head back out for the week.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Our Sunday gathering lasts for a little over an hour. You will find a friendly, informal, casual crowd. The practical teaching alternates between book studies and short topical series. The music includes a full band and is most often modern worship songs with the occassional re-mixed hymn.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR KIDS?
We have nursery for infants and kids classes for kindergarten through 5th grade. Parents are free to bring their children into the worship service or drop them off at Expedition Kids - a safe, fun, bible-centered environment for kids.
IS THERE SOMETHING FOR TEENS?
We believe that youth are an important part of the body of Christ and we value their participation in our gathering. Therefore, we intentionally do not have programs for them on Sundays.
Psalm 127 says, "Children are a gift from the Lord..." and we agree! We love kids and think a church should be full of them!
When it comes to children, we believe our primary responsibility as a church is to assist parents to be the spiritual leaders of their children. Because of this, you won't find an abundance of children's programs, but you will find support, encouragement and practical teaching to help you carry out that role.
We do have nursery and kids classes available Sunday mornings led by loving, qualified adults. The environment is fun, safe and includes fantastic gospel-centered teaching!
Teens are an important part of the Expedition family. We have a great team of dedicated adults who are committed to help love and disciple middle school and high school students.
Middle School meets Sunday nights, 4:00 pm.
High School meets Monday nights, 7:00 pm.
Both groups participate in winter and summer camps, service projects and a variety of other activities throughout the year.

God made us to live in community... to do life together. We also know that life change happens best in the context of intentionally meaningful relationships.
Our Life Groups are small gatherings that meet at various times and locations in people's homes. They include a time of Bible study/discussion and prayer. The study is follow-up to the prior Sunday's message with the goal of personal application.

SERVICE PROJECTS & MISSIONS
We believe that all people have been created in God's image and, therefore, have immense value. Because of this, we desire to share in God's gracious and compassionate heart for people (Ps. 103:8) by doing what we can to relieve suffering and to aid in the wholistic renewal of people's lives and the communities they live in.
We encourage this individually as people living "on mission" and collectively as a church united.
Throughout our short history, we have been involved locally in Payson supporting various organizations like the Payson Christian Clinic, Time Out (domestic violence shelter), U-Turn for Christ (men's substance abuse recovery) and local food banks. Expedition has also supported Streetlight USA (abolishing sex-slave trade of minors) in Phoenix and International Justice Mission. Additionally, we have contributed internationally to works in Turkey, Mexico, and most significantly to our adopted community of Rwimbogo Rwanda through Food for the Hungry.
