Let's be honest: it's a little awkward for anyone, even a mature believer, to enter into a brand new group of people who are talking about things you know little about. For us as missional communities (25-40 people), the driving force of what we're after in our primary meeting time is behaving like a family in a HOME GATHERING.
- Low-barrier discussion about following Jesus: As close relationships are being formed in the HOME GATHERINGS, this time will also be the vehicle for intentional prayer for others in the group.
- Gathering around a meal: Great things happen around the dinner table and now more often than not, the most significant conversations & time for building relationships happen around a shared meal.
Our current HOME GATHERINGS meet on Sunday afternoon and Monday and Thursday evenings.
