What is it?

People come to worship at DOWNTOWN CHURCH and after awhile, they frequently approach someone that looks like they know what they are doing to ask “How do I get plugged in?”

In the past, we responded on a case by case basis. But over time a difficult math equation developed: 

{# of inquiries X # of new faces X # of plugs = blank stare }

1) A meal hosted by our pastor in her home.

The night is a low-key affair where you will meet other people that are new to the church and ready to do more than attend Sunday worship. You won’t be asked to fill out a pledge card or walk over hot coals. It’s not a rite of initiation and you won’t get a sticker or a tattoo. However, you will laugh and hear the story of the church, how we got here, and where we are going. The gathering is small — 12 people or less.

2) An easy and obvious first step

In order to respond with something more credible than “look at our website and see what interests you” we will offer our Discover DOWNTOWN experience as the 1st step for anyone that’s interested in moving beyond attending worship regularly to sharing in the life of the church through acts of service, learning, and leadership.

3) What you do before joining

You don’t have to join the church to belong to the church. But, if you want to make the commitment Discover Downtown is the recommended first step. Kick the church tires, look under the hood, ask for the service records, and imagine other car buying metaphors.

4) An event requiring registration
