simple church network

“Spring Fever!” Sunday March 2nd!

Do you have spring fever?  If so, join together with simple church friends and family across the network and beyond for a few hours of games, crafts, snacks, and fun!  You don’t need to bring anything but your energy.  Who knows exactly what we will get into?  Basketball?

Board games?  We will have the gym and dinning room reserved at First Alliance (2201 Old Higbee Mill Road, Lexington, KY) for all of us to come together and burn off some energy and fellowship with one another!  Hope you can come and bring a friend!  If possible, please… Read More »“Spring Fever!” Sunday March 2nd!

Often I get the question, “Are there any other churches doing this?” when explaining the idea of a “simple church network.”  While we know that many Christians outside of North America experience church differently than our traditional Sunday service-centered church, consider the following findings of the Barna Group that may be surprising: The most prolific response (in nationwide studies concerning house church involvement) comes when adults are asked if they have “experienced God or expressed (their) faith in God in a house church or simple church meeting in the past month,” regardless of whether it is affiliated with some other… Read More »On similar paths
