Resurrection Day Communion (By Jeff Herron)

March 27, 2016 — Resurrection Day, by Jeff Herron Unexpectedly volunteering to serve communion with Darah at the Resurrection Day gathering of the Simple Church Alliance network. Can’t remember acting in this capacity before. Starting to think right away about what words I might say as people come up to receive the elements. There’s that passage in Corinthians somewhere about not being unworthy, but I can’t remember it well enough. Maybe the more traditional “the body of Christ, broken for your sins…”, but I can’t really recall exactly how that one goes either, and I’m not much for formulaic incantations anyway. Realize there’s a bit of pride in...

7 Reasons To Network With Other Simple Churches

On the second Wednesday of each month, we host an informal gathering and dinner for simple church leaders, soon to be leaders, and anyone interested in learning more about simple church.  Here are a few reasons why we believe it is important to network with other simple churches: 1.  Encouragement. We need to encourage one another on the mission God has for our simple church community . 2.  APEST. Usually no one simple church has Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds, and Teachers so networking with other simple churches help everyone to benefit from the these gifts to the church outlined in Ephesians 4. 3.  Prayer.  To listen to God together and gain a sense...
