“Worship is not something we work up or go to on a Sunday morning. Worship is every discipline’s endgame.”
Adele Ahlberg Calhoun
We are committed to following the way of Jesus.
We structure ourselves around rhythms that help us do this. Together we are moving UP toward God, IN toward each other, and OUT toward our parish, the City of Englewood.
For many people God feels far away, and yet, God is inviting us to move closer and closer through regular rhythms of worship.
The primary way our church moves UP toward God is through our weekly WORSHIP GATHERINGS.
These simple and hospitable gatherings are designed to set our focus on the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and to send us out inspired, commissioned, and focused on following the way of Jesus in our day-to-day lives.
Whether you are falling on hard times or celebrating health and happiness, relationships are essential for growth and sustenance.
The primary way we accomplish these relationships is around TABLES.
Every weekgather for meals and meaningful conversation to talk about life, faith, family, work, and the Bible. We believe that growth and health require that we move toward ourselves, knowing ourselves better in order to heal, progress, and create with greater efficacy and efficiency. We accomplish this through workshops, resources, prayers, and practices that help us take our Sunday experience into our weekly rhythms.
When we take time to listen and pay attention to the places where we live, work, and play, we will often find that there is a great deal of need all around us. We believe that God is at work all around us and we are invited to join God in that work.
The primary ways we care for our community are through CIVIC ENGAGEMENT, our NEIGHBORS, and our SCHOOLS.
Our church is committed to serving our parish, the city of Englewood, as well as equipping our people to care for other places and people in their lives.
We participate in civic engagement by regularly attending and participating City Council Meetings, hosting and moderating debates for local politicians, and by praying weekly with and for our City Manager.
We care for our neighbors by hosting great block parties, taking meals to those in need, celebration, or grief, taking the time to learn about the people who live on our block, through Neighboring Grants, and by providing for our homeless neighbors.
We care for our schools by hosting Teacher Appreciation Events, volunteering in classrooms, collecting school supplies for students in need, and through an annual Christmas Store.
