We recognize the profound impact our time together on Sundays has in shaping us as a community. Below is a description of what you can expect at one of our weekly gatherings.

Remember & Celebrate

Together we remember
our good & beautiful God,
create space to confess and lament the brokenness in us and around us,
and rehearse the story of Jesus, receive his forgiveness, and rest in his grace
through songs, prayers, and readings.

Consider & Respond

We tangibly submit ourselves to the Scriptures by reading & teaching the Word— a time where the Bible is honestly discussed and applied to our lives.
This culminates in our response with Communion— where those who follow Jesus remember and celebrate the reality of his grace by taking the bread and wine together.

Practice & Be Sent

We believe Sundays are spaces to reorient our hearts to who God is and what he is doing in the world. We spend considerable time in our gatherings becoming aware of & praying for the needs in our city and around the globe & hear specific ways people are practicing the way of Jesus. Our time together ends with a Benediction— where all are sent out to our neighborhoods to love our neighbors as ourselves.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I’m not sure about Christianity?

We are so glad you’re considering exploring life with Jesus alongside us. We desire to cultivate environments & relationships where you can honestly bring your doubts, questions, hurts, and concerns into a dialogue with us at your own pace. You’re not a hinderance and you’re not a project for us, but we do want to help you in any way we can.

What should I expect at a Sunday gathering?

Our gatherings are an intentional mix of beautiful simplicity, meaning— we hope you are stirred to experience a bit of the goodness and truth of God in and through what we do, but we’re also not trying to impress anybody or put on a show. Our gatherings are more like a family and less like a performance. Families are a bit messy and really ordinary, but meaningful and what we need most. Our gatherings usually last an hour & 15 minutes. Even if we’re running over for some reason, we’ll always have you out by 6:30pm each week. Feel free to stick around & meet someone new!

Where do I go? What do I wear?

We gather in a facility of a partner church in our neighborhood, Denver Christian Bible Church, so don’t let that throw you off when you arrive. There is a parking lot behind the building (on the corner of E Iowa & Cherry) and you will see signs directing you into the door by the lot. If the parking lot is full, there should be ample street parking anywhere around the building. We gather together in the first room you see as you enter. As far as what to wear— come in what’s comfortable to you, but most of us are in jeans and t-shirts.

What denomination are you?

Our church community is made up of an eclectic mix of various church backgrounds and denominations. We are joined by one common denominator—Jesus is the reason we have life and is worthy of our allegiance and devotion. However, we voluntarily join with like-minded churches through our partnership and involvement with the Send Network and The Mile High Family of Churches.

What about my kids?

Our church family is full of families with kiddos of all ages and our aim is to help equip parents & caregivers to be the primary influencers in their children’s lives. What happens on Sunday is a significant part of that, but it’s just a piece of our Family Ministry.

Kids of all ages join us for the first 15 minutes of our gathering where we will sing and pray together. Kids ages 1 to 4 years old are dismissed and securely walked to their class (in the room directly beside our main gathering room) for the remainder of our time together, while ages 5 & up are provided an age-appropriate activity packet to work through while they remain in our large gathering. If you would rather your preschooler to stay with you, they are more than welcome!

Before the gathering begins, be sure to stop by our Kids Check-in table by the main entrance to receive an identification badge for each child (ages 1-4 who will be attending our classes). Our first and greatest priority is to keep our kiddos safe.

New City Catechism

The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at helping children and adults alike learn the core doctrines of the Christian faith via 52 questions and answers. We utilize this curriculum on Sunday evenings & as a resource for parents & caregivers in the home.
