If you’re joining us for the first time, that’s great! We meet at Monkey Wrench Brewing in an awesome indoor / outdoor space (14,000 warehouse) so there’s no need to dress up. People even bring their dogs!
KIDS (ages 5 and older) usually enjoy the service. We’re working on a kids’ program during the “talking” part of the service, and should have something in the next couple of weeks. We don’t yet have a nursery option, but it’s a casual environment so you can walk around with your baby or toddler or let them play on the ground. The service is definitely Middle and High school student friendly.
SEATING options are varied and include couches, padded folding chairs, picnic tables, etc. Many of us also bring our favorite comfortable tailgate chairs.
OVERVIEW: We get started at 10am with coffee and an awesome assortment of homemade breakfast casseroles, donuts, bagels, etc. while we meet, connect, and catch up with one another. We consider breakfast and coffee a part of our worship service because we place a high value on relationships and connection.
At around 10:20am, we transition towards our worship gathering. We often start by asking if anyone has any “good news” (i.e., highlights) from the past week, and it’s fun to hear the good things going on in each other’s lives. We usually start our worship service by reading a passage of scripture (often from the Psalms), prayer, and a couple of worship songs. Then, we have a teaching message from the Bible (usually about 20-25 minutes) and opportunities for interactive sharing (i.e., prayer needs, encouraging Bible verses, and take-aways at the end of the service). Sharing is always optional. We usually wrap up by 11:45am and stay for lunch from the food truck of the day or head out to enjoy the day.
Our hope is that our Sunday morning worship service experience would feel more like time out with our friends on a Saturday night, and if you decide to come join us, we think you’re going to have a great experience! We hope to see you soon!
