Christmas Gathering Dec. 17

This year, we will return to downtown Lexington for a network wide Christmas celebration! Join us for an evening of fellowship and worship through Christmas songs and carols!

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...

What Do We Do At A Simple Church Gathering (Video Part 2)

In this video Erik addresses the question of how a simple church can be formed and what the church does at a simple church gathering.   He has some very practical ideas and as you can see it is simple.  I love his last point about praying that God would show you pockets of people who are “culturally averse to the American way of doing church” and being available to see a seed church formed.

6 Benifits To Gathering On Sunday Mornings

Our simple church has settled into meeting on Sunday mornings and I’ve grown to enjoy it.  I have thought of six reasons I would encourage other simple churches to gather on Sunday mornings as well. Certainly there is not hard rule about when folks should meet and most every group will settle on times and locations for a host of reasons. As you think about the best time for your simple church to gather, consider the following… 1.  Convenience – The hardest thing about getting folks together regularly is finding a common time that everyone is available.  In general, it seems that the most available time on folks’ calendars is Sunday morning. ...
