Sunday Gathering

In the messiness of shared life, a community of broken people come together to learn what it means to follow Jesus. On Sunday we hope to see miracles, prophecy, healing. We expect the unexpected, and yet are wonderfully contented with the beautifully ordinary discipline of family, songs of protest and praise, and with the bread and the cup of communion.

More about Gathering

 

Van City Communities

We combat the hyper-individualism of our culture by deliberately choosing to share life with others in the context of community. More than friends with shared interests, a community shares resources, burdens, and life as they learn to apprentice Jesus together. In community, we learn what it means to follow Jesus as we work to see God's will done in Vancouver as it is in heaven.

  • House of Learning: Sweatshops & Justice

    How do the things that we buy affect the world and the people in it, for better or for worse? As disciples of Jesus, do we have a responsibility to shop “ethically”? If so, how? Taught by Josh Porter, House of Learning: Sweatshops & Justice is a succinct but thorough tour of labor ethics and the fashion industry, with pragmatic steps forward as we learn to follow Jesus in every area of our lives.

  • Year of Biblical Literacy

    Truly knowing your Bible through the practice of reading has become a lost art, and it seems we are becoming illiterate toward the narrative of God. In 2017, participate with us in the “Year of Biblical Literacy.” Follow the Bible Reading Plan and work through the entire biblical narrative one day at a time. It is made of four parts: reading the bible, watching videos, listening to teachings and lectures, and talking with community.

    Dates: Jan 01 – Dec 31
