Encouraging each other spiritually includes a variety of experiences in addition to our weekly worship services. Join others in a biblical study, serve on a ministry team, or participate in one of many events such as a retreat, hike, or church picnic which are planned throughout the year.
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 (NIV)
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Walk the faith journey with others through Bible studies or discipleship groups such as managing finances or having a godly marriage. These Bible-centered journey groups meet at various times and locations during the fall and spring semesters, and new groups are constantly coming onto the scene. We also endorse other groups in Anchorage with a specific focus such as grieving or addiction recovery.
If you don’t find a group that suits your passion, we encourage you to start one! Let us know if you want to lead a group with your preferred, biblically sound curricula so that we may list your group. Groups can target a specific demographic or be open to anyone.
Many people step up throughout the year to host a hike, overnight getaway, or coordinate summer softball teams. These events are found at this link. See what you would like to attend or help make happen.
WAYS TO SERVE AND MISSIONS
Serving with others is another way we build relationships and find purpose. Your skills, talents, and resources have an eternal impact. Discover ways to serve at Clear Water and in our community. You may find yourself playing games with youth in Noorvik, Alaska on our annual summer mission trip. Clear Water supports and highlights other local and global ministries. We also send out individuals and teams to serve around the world.
A prayer group meets Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM in room 132 prior to the Sunday worship service. Feel free to join in anytime during this hour to listen to others pray or add your own prayers for our church, city, and world.
We believe that church membership is important for mutual accountability. Explore what it means to be a member. Membership classes happen about every 2-3 months. Contact James Embree at to let him know you want to be invited to the next membership class. They will also be advertised throughout the year.
