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! In addition, we will join with friends from Bridges International! Bridges is a ministry to international students and families in the area.  Many international students come to the US with a desire to meet Americans and learn about Christianity but unfortunately never enter the home of a Christian while here.  Bridges International hopes seeks to give opportunities for Christians to build relationships with those visiting our universities.  We hope that this evening will be… Read More »Christmas Gathering Dec. 17

Simple Church Conference – Retreat 2017

Connect with and learn alongside simple/house/organic church practitioners from around the region at this year’s simple church conference/retreat.

Changes for Monthly Leadership Training This Summer

Friends, As many of you know, we will approach “training” differently this summer.  Rather than the usual “3rd wednesday of the month” evenings at the Bank, I am encouraging simple church leaders to utilize the Zume Training tool over the next several weeks. My prayer is that several Zume training groups may emerge and meet in homes over the course of the summer.  Therefore, there will be no training this month, in June or July at the bank.  We will resume in August at the bank.  (We will host other summer network opportunites as posted here). How Do I Participate? New? If you are… Read More »Changes for Monthly Leadership Training This Summer

Skate Church – FCA Skate Camp Praise

Skate Church-FCA Skate Camp Wrap Up by Gavin Duerson We wrapped up our 8th year of Skate Camp yesterday! This camp has a special place in my heart as, in many ways, it was the beginning of what would become “skate church” and what would also help me clearly see the vision for “simple church.” I am super blessed to see that this camp continues to be a pillar in the skate church community and that God is continuing to use it to grow the Kingdom! Below are some pictures from the week and some bullet point highlights from all that… Read More »Skate Church – FCA Skate Camp Praise
