Rhythms. As a new church we are discovering what our rhythms will be as a community. We want our rhythms or habits to form us as a people. We desire to balance our upward movement toward God (worship/devotion), our inward movement toward each other (spiritual community/fellowship), and our outward movement as part of the kingdom of God (neighborhood renewal/outreach).
They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers…They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw.
- Acts 2:42 & 46
Sunday gatherings help people of all ages discover a meaningful relationship with Christ and grow in spiritual development. This is a time for the broader church family to gather together around the preaching of the word, the eucharist of Christ's body and blood, giving of resources to the life of the church body, and communal celebration of who God is and what He is doing in our lives.
Skeptics are welcome!
We meetup weekly in groups of 3 to 7 for relationship building, spiritual formation, and accountability. (Don't let "accountability" scare you. We just want what's best for each other). Whether you've had an active faith for years or are just beginning to explore your faith, you'll find a relaxed environment where questions are welcomed.
Meals are a powerful expression of welcome and friendship in every culture. Jesus spent a large portion of his time eating with friends, followers, and foes. So we join to together regularly to share a meal with each other and our neighbors. By doing so we hope to meet new friends and develop strong community within our neighborhood.
The Hills Church exists because its people serve one another. Since we are a church in infancy, we are looking for people who might share our vision of creating a church that works for good of the neighborhood. We are confident that God is forming a team of church pioneers to step out in faith and join this adventure. We encourage you to pray and ask God if he would have you join us.
Jesus is bringing resurrection, redemption, and renewal wherever God’s people are willing to join him. At The Hills we want to be known for our generosity - both with our time and finances - toward those in our neighborhood. Through our partnerships with great local organizations, we provide opportunities to meet real needs in our neighborhood.
What happens at The Table?
We eat. We chat. We get to know another. Pretty simple.
Who is invited?
Our neighbors in and around Park Hill. No religious affiliation required. If you live outside of Park Hill, you're invited too!
Why do we do this? What’s the hidden agenda?
There is no hidden agenda. We want to help our neighbors get to know each other. You might find yourself talking about your hobby and your interests. We might do the same so you might hear us talking about Jesus from time to time. We promise not to "sell" Jesus if you promise not to sell your oils, teas, coffees, supplements, cosmetics, kitchen products, or creams. :)
We started The Table because we are committed to seeing our neighborhood prosper. We want to help our neighbors get to know each other. Living in Park Hill we have found that people take pride in the neighborhood and want to know their neighbors. However, there are limited natural social gathering spaces in Park Hill. This is even more pronounced in the northern half of the neighborhood since it was designed without sidewalks. All are welcome at The Table whether you claim to follow Jesus or not, whether you agree with our theology or not, whether you’ve been in the neighborhood three weeks or thirty years. If you would like a full explanation about why we think sharing meals is so important, you can read THIS.
Every 5th Sunday we have a pancake breakfast in lieu of our normal worship service. We believe that sharing meals together is a foretaste of God's coming kingdom when we will sit down for a meal with our Savior. We post these on our Events page when they come up.
