What is the GRASSROOTS Family Reunion?

It is a monthly gathering of our Gospel Communities with a focus on the centrality of Jesus through communal worship.

  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through the enjoyment of food and relationships.
  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through communal adoration, thanksgiving, prayer and praise.
  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through our communal engagement with Scripture.
  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through the building up of one another in love.
  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through Trinitarian Gifts and storytelling.
  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through our communal participation in communion.
  • The centrality of Jesus in worship through our identity as a missionary people SENT by our missionary God.

While we have nursery available for children birth-3 years of age, children 4-7 years of age participate WITH their parents in enjoying food, musical worship, communion (if they believe in Jesus), Trinitarian Gifts and story telling. However, for approximately 45 minutes of our Family Reunion, they are invited to participate in a child appropriate engagement of Scripture.

We have no desire to develop “programs” or “ministries.” Rather, we cultivate gospel-shaped rhythms of life and missional, incarnational practices. In view of this, all our systems, structures, and equipping opportunities serve this end. If you are used to having lots of religious goods and services available for you to pick and choose from, we will sorely disappoint you. We are participatory and are becoming increasingly aware of our need to be equipped for ministry (which shapes us). So, we expect everyone to participate in worship, contribute to the health of the whole (which includes serving when we gather), and live into relational life together in and through Jesus Christ.

Though we highly value our monthly Family Reunion, if a person is not a part of a Gospel Community, he/she is not a part of GRASSROOTS.
