Everyone has a next step. What’s yours?

No matter what your past looks like, we believe God has a plan for your future. We’d love to help you discover what your next step looks like in becoming a fully devoted follower of Jesus.

We encourage everyone new to Stevens Street to attend our Connection Class. This one-time meeting (offered monthly) is designed to be an informal, no-pressure way for you to hear about who we are as a church, answer any questions you may have, and help you see what your next step is.

Here are a few things you’ll learn about in our Connection Class. Not sure where to start? That’s ok—just drop us a line here.

Be forgiven.

Every human being that has ever lived has been faced with the same problem: God is perfect, and we are not.  Something about us is broken, and the fix for it is nothing we can muster up ourselves.  The good news?  God has provided the way for you to be forgiven and restored- his name is Jesus.  There literally is no greater or more urgent message you'll ever hear.  That's why we make such a big deal about Jesus at our church, and we want you to know the joy of being His.


Be baptized.

After you've put your trust in Jesus, baptism in water is the way you make your faith public.  It's an act of obedience to God and visible way you show others that shows Jesus is now the King of your life.  Have you trusted in Jesus, but haven't been baptized yet?  This is your next step.  Contact us to learn more.


Be a member.

Membership is the way that you commit to God and to the church that you will serve and live out your faith as a part of our community of believers.  It's not about getting rights or "perks;" it's about joining a family and promising to love, encourage, and pray for one another.  Are you a Christian who's been attending our services, but haven't made the commitment to membership?  This is your next step.  Contact us to learn more, or simply drop by our next Connection Class.


Join a life group.

Small groups are a big deal at our church.  Being a part of a Life Group is a way for you to build friendships, be encouraged, and study the Bible with others in a smaller setting than our worship services.  Most of these groups meet on Sundays at 9:00 or 10:30am, and are open year round for new people to join.  Are you looking to grow in your faith and connect with others?  This is your next step.



We are never more like Jesus than when we are serving others.  Whether it's in our church--volunteering with kids ministry, helping greet new guests, singing in our choir--or out in the community or across the oceans, every member of Stevens Street has been uniquely gifted by God to serve others.  Have you discovered where your place of service is yet?  God wants to use you for His Kingdom.  Let us help you connect with the mission of God through service.



It's amazing that God chooses to use us to make His Name known in Cookeville and around the world.  Your gifts to our church help enable us to serve others and move forward in obedience to Him.  The regular giving of our church supplies the financial means to carrying out the mission God has given us to make disciples of all nations.  Will you partner with us?
