At Home Gatherings
At Home Gatherings
As we continue to leverage the Sunday live stream for weekly worship, teaching, and communion, we encourage you to actively and communally participate with us. Please consider one of the options below for how you will begin gathering on Sundays:
Who are the people in your life that you want to grow deeper in God with? Are they neighbors, friends from church or house church, co-workers? Invite them each Sunday into your home to experience God with you through the livestream.
Can’t host in your home? Find someone else who can and join with them in inviting others.
In the weeks to come we will gear the language and flow of our livestream to promote communal participation within our At Home Gatherings. We’re excited to see what God will do as we continue leaning into being the scattered church in living rooms all across our city!
Frequently Asked Questions
How is an Ethos At Home Gathering different than an Ethos House Church?
Ethos At Home Gatherings are communal times of worship, teaching, communion, and prayer taking place around the Ethos Sunday Livestream, and they are the current model for weekend gatherings across our entire church. House Churches typically meet during the week, in smaller groups, as a way of engaging our mission of Loving God, Loving People, and Awakening a Movement right in their own neighborhood.
When and where do Ethos At Home Gatherings meet?
Ethos At Home Gatherings meet in homes, parks, yards, and other gathering places across the city. Although Sunday morning is the most common day and time, there are At Home Gatherings meeting throughout the week at different times.
What can I expect when I attend an Ethos At Home Gathering?
You can expect a welcoming environment where you will worship, engage in biblical teaching, and have the opportunity to fellowship with others.
What safety precautions will be in place?
Ethos At Home Gathering Hosts should familiarize themselves with both our local and CDC guidelines, and communicate their plans clearly with those in attendance. Different individuals and gatherings will have different comfort levels.
