Connect > Sundays
Sunday, like many churches, is our primary large group gathering time. Our goal, though, is that Sundays aren’t our only meeting time. We hope that Sundays serve as a gathering time of the people and lives that overlap throughout the week. We realize, though, that for many people, one of the primary entry points into a community of faith is Sunday. Because of that, we try to make our Sunday gathering times meaningful and connective.
Our gatherings could be described as the intersection of house church and “traditional” or “congregational” church (sorry for the gratuitous use of a couple creepy multi-syllabic words…). We meet in a renovated commercial building in downtown Little Rock (our pals over at Google were kind enough to make a map) that, once upon a time, was home to such things as a production studio and band practice/concert space. Ultimately, we’ve tried to make it feel a little more warm and home-like than an old commercial space.
So, what exactly do these times of worship look like? We have two primary focal points. First, each week (at 6 p.m.) we begin with a meal, prepared by our own people. Whether you’re flying solo or with the entire family, everyone’s invited to share in this time for dinner and conversation. After the meal, we transition into a teaching/discussion time. We try to make these times as participatory as possible. They are led by a different person each week. Whereas our lead guy, Ryan, leads semi-regularly, we value giving a voice to a variety of people so we can here a fuller breadth of points-of-view that might not otherwise be considered.
We think our Sunday gatherings are a great time to connect and join in this conversation about God. You can find us at 518 W. 9th St. (just off Broadway next to Backyard Burgers). We kick things off at 6 p.m. New people are genuinely welcomed, so come join us.
