What Time Are Your Gatherings?

Sunday evenings at 6:00pm

We start with a potluck of finger-foods and usually meet for roughly 120 minutes.  Our times together include conversation around tables, communion, music, group singing, a message from the Bible, prayer, and opportunity to give tithes and offerings.

How Do I Get There?

Currently meeting at 10318 92 st (in the “Safety City” building).

When You Come

As you arrive, greeters will offer you a bulletin (filled with community announcements and information about our church) and invite you to have a seat at a table.  Please fill out a connection card (inserted in each bulletin) so we can pray for you, answer your questions, or mail you a card later in the week.

Communion

Every week, we share the Lord’s Supper as part of our worship.  In the bread and cup, we participate in, celebrate and remember Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.  We practice open communion, so all are invited to join with us in this Christian memorial.  You may partake or abstain, according to your conscience.

Offering

As part of our worship of God, we collect an offering each week.  These funds support the work of our church both locally and around the world in a variety of ways and we steward each dollar with great care and accountability.  You are welcome to contribute financially, but we do not want our guests to feel any pressure to give.  If you wish to receive a donation receipt for tax purposes, please use an offering envelope and provide us with accurate contact information.

Casual Atmosphere

We have a relaxed approach to church life and our services have a family-friendly feel from our music (which is different each week) to our space (sharing around tables instead of sitting in rows) to the way people interact (lots of laughs and prayer for each other), the goal is that everyone feels welcomed and comfortable.  Our dress code is very simple: dress however you want!  If you like to dress up, dress up.  If you like to be comfy, be comfy.  It is our goal that everyone feels welcome to be themselves when they come to worship God.

What About My Kids?

At this site, we enjoy an intergenerational experience around the tables.  Kids bulletins and crayons are available from the greeters if you wish.  Our volunteer leaders and all Church of Christ staff follow Plan To Protect procedures but at this time we are not offering separate children’s programming during our gatherings.
