This summer, we will be having six consecutive weeks of what we are calling “Kingdom Family Summer Gatherings” where we will be combining our 8:30am and 10:45am Sunday gatherings into one (packed) 9:30am gathering. Kids ministry will resume as always, but will also be meeting ONLY at 9:30am. Following the one 9:30am gathering, we will be congregating at picnic tables outside for a “Kingdom Family Meal”. A main course of BBQ will be provided free of charge, and the youth will be selling drinks to raise funds for Summer Camp, but we are asking that each of you bring a side dish to share. There will also be a fun zone for the kids! The Kingdom Family Summer Gatherings will begin Sunday, June 16, until Sunday, July 21. So make note of the time change, and show up early on those Sunday (if you want your choice of a seat!). This will be an incredible time for our church body to all be TOGETHER, as we gather around the cross in worship, and the table in fellowship.
Flourish is excited to gather around the fire together over the next few months! This series is designed to create an intimate environment for you to pull up a chair alongside women who are also endeavoring to raise children with an eternal perspective in mind. We will gather to listen, learn, pray, and be encouraged in raising our kids. Each gathering features a different, experienced mom from our church body as she shares on different elements of Christ-centered mothering. Warm drinks and treats will be served.

In light of our current Kingdom Family series in the book of Ephesians, our featured Book Spotlight is When the Church Was a Family by Joseph Hellerman that we want to encourage everyone to purchase and read.
Spiritual formation occurs primarily in the context of community. But as the modern cultural norm of what social scientists call “radical American individualism” extends itself, many Christians grow lax in their relational accountability to the church. Faith threatens to become an “I” not “us,” a “my God” not “our God” concern.
When the Church Was a Family calls believers back to the wisdom of the first century, examining the early Christian church from a sociohistorical perspective and applying the findings to the evangelical church in America today. With confidence, author Joseph Hellerman writes intentionally to traditional church leaders and emerging church visionaries alike, believing what is detailed here about Jesus’ original vision for authentic Christian community will deeply satisfy the relational longings of both audiences.Order Now
