CONNECT WITH A HOUSE CHURCH
House churches meet in houses throughout our communities. A typical House Church gathering will include a casual time of snacks and getting to know others, Bible study and discussion, and prayer for one another.
We encourage you to find the House Church that is closest to you geographically, and connect with the host by filling out the online form. They will give you directions to their house and answer any other questions you may have concerning House Church.
ABOUT HOUSE CHURCH
The church we read about in Scripture lived in incredible, powerful, intimate community. We think they did a great job, and we want to follow their model of meeting together.
The 1st Century church met together by the thousands, but followed Jesus’ teaching and example of community by living life together by the dozens. They gathered throughout the week by the dozens in House Churches. House Church is our primary vehicle for discipleship and community at Christian Life Assembly. House Church is the primary context where people will be known by others and is what keeps our church community intimate and organic – no matter how large Sundays gatherings grow.
The early church addressed their gatherings to “the church who met in ____’s house”, so we call ours HOUSE CHURCH.
They met together young and old, so we meet together CROSS-GENERATIONALLY.
They met together GEOGRAPHICALLY, so we encourage people to find the House Church located closest to their home.
They met each other’s needs, so we MEET OTHERS NEEDS within House Church – not another benevolent model.
They studied the Scriptures, so we have SCRIPTURE-BASED STUDY.
As in Acts 2:42-47, House Church will be the epicenter of:
– teaching and discipleship
– discovering our gifts and serving,
– encouragement, friendship and accountability
– meeting each other’s needs, prayer for one another
