PLAN YOUR VISIT
We get it. Visiting a church for the first time can be a little weird--but it doesn't have to be. We're here to help! We seek to encounter God through different service formats each week, so here's a sneak peek of what you can expect.
Below that are some FAQ's that may answer other questions you already have.
Our Teaching Services consist of 20-25 minutes of worship, and a 20-25 minute sermon. Our approach to teaching from the Bible is from a perspective of mystery, wonder, questioning, and practicality. On First Sundays we also end with a time of prayer ministry instead of Communion.
Our Contemplative Services are more reflective, with space made for periods of stillness and silence. We seek to attune ourselves to God’s activity in our lives in these services through a rhythm of communal prayers, worship songs, and meditative scripture readings. We aim to rest in him as he refreshes us.
Our third Sunday Teaching Services are very similar to first Sundays, with a set of 20-25 minutes of worship songs and 35-ish minute sermon–just a little longer than on first Sundays. Unlike first Sundays, we end these services by celebrating Communion together, as we do most other Sundays.
In our Multi-Gen Service, kids 1st Grade and up join the adults for teaching and Communion. Children are not the future of the Kingdom of God–they are the now of the Kingdom! We aim for these services to be relevant and accessible to them as much as for the adults.
On the ocassional 5th Sunday, in lieu of a traditional church service, we will engage in the spiritual practice of fellowship—relationships built around a shared meal in the presence of Divine Love. Even if you come empty handed, there’s a seat for you!
We end every service (except for first Sundays) by celebrating Communion. In this simple yet profound act–which is a central sacrament and means of grace–we receive the life-giving and liberating death of Jesus on our behalf. All baptized believers are welcome to the table.
