“And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts.”
Luke 2:46 
Gathering is vital as God prepares to scatter us into a lost world. Every Sunday, when we gather and sing songs, hear the Word proclaimed, pray, take part in communion, corporately confess and repent from sin, we're strengthened in faith and reminded we're not alone.

This truly is a new family.

The weekly gathering of the body goes against our individualistic culture and is one of the most formative practices in which we can partake. It’s in the seeming ordinariness when we are reminded we are in a sacred place, with holy people, allowing the living God to form us again into the image of His Son.

Trellis Nights

June 4   |   5:00pm
Jesus said, "Follow me." At Trellis Nights, we will take our next steps together toward following Him. Our evenings will be focused on a practice of spiritual formation. We'll eat, worship, and learn experientially as we seek to close the gap between what we believe and who we are becoming in Christ. Our Trellis Night on "Gathering" is June 4.
