In Acts 1 & 2 following Jesus’ accession a new larger disciple making environment was formed. A group of about 120 gathered “continually for prayer” awaiting the arrival of the Holy Spirit to empower them to accomplish Jesus’ invitation to make disciples with Him and for Him. Eventually this group became thousands, as disciples made disciples and even saw the formation of new gatherings outside of Jerusalem. This new bulging family met as a large gathering daily in the Temple courts. This disciple making environment is what we envision and are intentional at equipping in what we call our Gather Sundays.
Gather Sundays - A weekly gathering as one large family to center ourselves on Christ, be empowered by the Spirit and be reminded of our mission. Practically this is accomplished through corporate prayer, fellowship, teaching, worship, care and celebration.
Gather Sunday Service Times
9:15 am & 11:00 am - We typically have two services (unless it's a holiday Sunday or Summer). Coffee and snacks are provided between services from 10:30 -11:00 am as a time for our family to connect.
Gather Sunday for Children and Youth
Children (Newborn - Grade 6) - During our 9:15 am service, infants and toddlers are welcome to join our nursery while school aged children are invited to worship together in a big group and then break off into small groups with children their own age. All of our children's ministries leaders and volunteers have been screened and trained, so we can ensure the safety of your child while in our care. Parents of babies and toddlers are given an identification tag and number. If you are needed during the service your child’s number will appear near on the right hand side of the stage. During our 11:00 am service we only offer program for children age 0-5.
Youth (Grade 7 -12) - During our 9:15 am service youth are invited to join a small group with other youth their age or they can choose to participate in our Quizzing program. In Quizzing youth study God's Word and participate in Quizzing competitions. We encourage families with youth to attend our 11:00 am service together.
