Our Rhythm

a shared strategy

Following Jesus is about more than going to church on Sundays. It’s an entire way of life. In order to pursue that life, we've adopted a shared “Rhythm” for our community, sometimes called a "Corporate Rule of Life." Our specific Rhythm is made up of a number of daily, weekly, and monthly practices that we believe God will use to shape us into the people we're meant to be. If you’re new to our community, we’d love for you to experiment with one of the disciplines below and see where it leads you.

Pray

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.  

Read

This month we're reading the Scriptures together topically. In other words, we're going to start by choosing a topic and then explore how it's addressed throughout the Bible. Let's start by considering some of the themes in the Lord's Prayer, such as: heaven, kingdom, forgiveness, temptation, evil or power.  

Respond

What new or significant thing did God reveal to you today in your study of this topic? What might God be saying to you through that? Write it down, give God thanks, and . . .

Evening Prayer (2015)

Prayerful people have found great meaning in the practice of "examen" for centuries - a simple prayer exercise that helps one recognize God's presence in their everyday lives by paying attention to the details. Through prayerful remembrance, we have come to see that the midday headache, the difficult conversation, or the quiet drive home can all be reviewed for grace and perspective as we prepare to end this day before beginning another. We encourage you to give it a try. Find a quiet moment this evening to light a candle or grab a journal and reflect on all that has transpired. Guiding questions are available by subscribing to "The Daily."

Receive the Daily

Weekly

Worship

Worship centers us. As we sing, pray, and listen for God's voice, we’re reminded of who we are and how we ought to live. Every Sunday we gather to worship before scattering for the week ahead.

Shared Meals

Shared meals are holy. Jesus used food to show hospitality and bless others. We seek to do the same as we commit to sharing at least one meal a week with someone we might extend grace to.

Exercise

The Bible teaches that our bodies are temples and that one day we will be resurrected. Therefore, we are committed to eating well and exercising at least three times a week.

Rest

God takes rest seriously. In fact, it made the top ten list of commandments. So, one day a week we shut it all down, even if it’s not all done, and remember that we aren’t God and that life is a gift.

Serve

Jesus said, “I did not come to be served but to serve.” As followers of Jesus, we too look for ways to serve. Once a month we devote a day to serving our city and another to serving the church.

Seasonal

Party

We believe that God is the happiest being in the universe and that we are called to be people of great joy. Therefore, we're passionate about throwing a few great parties every year.
