We are a church who gathers

Weekend gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church around the bread and cup, to worship together, learn the Scriptures, pray for one another, and create space to hear from the Spirit. We also gather in similar age groups and stages of life to grow together in our discipleship to Jesus.

We are a church who scatters

Missional Communities are the primary way that we scatter during the week to be the people of Jesus in our city. In communities, we are the family of God, on the mission of God, making disciples of Jesus. We also scatter throughout the world to plant churches and partner in justice work.

  • Year of Biblical Literacy

    Truly knowing your Bible through the practice of reading has become a lost art, and it seems we are becoming illiterate toward the narrative of God. In 2016, participate with us in the “Year of Biblical Literacy.” Follow the Bible Reading Plan and work through the entire biblical narrative one day at a time. It is made of four parts: reading the bible, watching videos, listening to teachings and lectures, and talking with community.

    Dates: Jan 01 – Dec 31
