Women need other women!  Around here we don’t gather at communal water wells or shared clothes lines.  So, we’re creating space.  We’re making time for being together in the form of a retreat.  We need it and it will be good.  Sue Clark has invited Simple Church ladies and their friends for a day at her farm.  Lunch will be provided.  We will start at 10Am and end by 5pm.  Teaching, singing, small group prayer, communion and an extended personal reflection time are all scheduled.  Please email Karla Duerson (karladuerson@yahoo.com) to make your reservation and receive your retreat e-packet with important details.View this event on Facebook...

Mega House Church (Rap)

Most of my life I have enjoyed satire.  Satire will often seek to approve of or accept as normal ideas that the satirist is actually seeking to attack.  Such is the case in this goofy song that applies attractional, hierarchical, personality driven, pulpit centered, church growth, clergy/laity ideas to simple/house/organic church...

Simple Church Training – Dec. 9th

Friday December 9th will be the only Simple Church Training of this month and I thought it would be good for us to discuss “simple church membership.”  As we continue to see new people visit the simple churches in the network and as we move toward becoming a self-sustaining network, questions about church membership are sure to arise.  Some of you will even be leaving membership of First Alliance to join this new work.  Please consider the following questions… What does it mean to be in member of a traditional church? simple church? Where do we see church membership in the New Testament? How will we know who are members of our simple church? How does our...
