Monday Theology_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

Through St. Mellitus School of Theology in London, the fall Bible Track will be an 8 week course consisting of two parts: "Bible Overview" and "Reading the Bible". The "Bible Overview" will consist of an overview of the Bible, introductions to the Old and New Testaments, and tools to help you encounter God in the scriptures. While "Reading the Bible" will use these tools to do an in depth study of four books of the Bible (Exodus, Psalms, Mark, and 1 Corinthians).

We'll begin each night with dinner together, then we'll have worship and prayer, followed by the teaching and some conversation. The 8 dates for School of Theology Bible Track are Oct. 16, Oct. 23, Oct. 30, Nov. 6, Nov. 13, Nov. 27, Dec. 4, and Dec. 11, which are all covered through the one time $50 fee.

DINNER OPTIONS: (1) Bring your own dinner. (2) For $80 you can purchase an Illegal Pete's Meal Plan, which will provide you with dinner for the entirety of the course. Please note in your registration if you have any dietary restrictions.

Our Common Life Workshop 2: Sabbath

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

This month, we'll be discussing the practice of Sabbath and how it relates to the outward flow of our lives, both individually and as a community.

Sabbath didn't just die away from the Old Testament, nor is it a practice reserved for monks living off in the wilderness... but it is actually a command for all of God's people to rest from all work. So the question is why?

We'll provide some light refreshments so bring a friend, bring your house church, and come join us to learn more!

Our Common Life Workshop 3: Tithing

This month we'll be talking about the topic no one wants to talk about: tithing.

What does it mean to be generous with what God has given us? What does the Bible say about money? How do we steward our finances? And perhaps most importantly, why? Here's a hint... it's much more connected to your spirituality than you probably realize!

We'll provide some light refreshments so bring a friend, bring your house church, and come join us!

Our Common Life Workshop 4: House Church and Relationships

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

We talk about it all the time... house churches. But why have we staked our entire community on this idea? Why do we believe so much in it? What's this whole house church thing all about?

Relationships. The thing we were made for.

This month, come join the discussion on why this is such a central part of the life of the Christian faith and be inspired to give yourself to it afresh.

This workshop will include dinner, which is why we are asking for a $10 registration fee. So have a friend or your house church sign up, and we'll see ya there!

Our Common Life Workshop 5: Prayer & Silence

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

How do you listen to the voice of God? How do you make space for prayer and silence in the midst of the business and chaos of life? Why is this an integral part of taking care of your soul and living life together as a community?

Come hear more on prayer and silence this month! We'll provide some light refreshments so bring a friend, bring your house church, and join us!

Our Common Life Workshop 6: Retreat

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

Retreats are something everyone loves to get excited about... you get to get away, to the mountains, perhaps with a couple of friends.

But what happens when you get there? And why was this something Jesus constantly made a point to practice during his ministry?

This month, as an integral component to our Rule of Life, we'll be talking all things retreat from why to planning one to what to do when it's over. Bring a friend or your house church, and come join us!

Our Common Life Workshop 7: Service

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

This month we'll be talking more about service and justice in the life of the church, and why we see it as part of our Rule of Life.

It is often times easy for the Church to talk about the idea that as we come to know God and ourselves, that our lives should easily turn outward to others... but we've all probably experienced that that lovely idea is much easier said than done.

So service unto others... Why do it? Where to start? What to do? What about sustainability?

Join us for this conversation and more! We'll provide some light refreshments, you bring a friend or two or even your whole house church!

Our Common Life Workshop 8: Body

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic-01.jpg

Why do we have a whole sphere of our Rule of Life devoted to body? And what's that got to do with Christianity anyways?

So much to dive into, from some of the historical teaching about us being bodied creatures to what it means to care for ourselves and how it's all connected with the rest of the Rule of Life.

If you have no idea what we're talking about -- all the more reason to join the conversation! Bring a friend or come as a house church! We'll have some light refreshments for ya!

New (and Familiar) Home for the Morning Gathering

Starting September 10, the morning gathering will be meeting in our Main Space at Hope. We are so excited about this, as it will allow us to focus our time and energy on serving the community rather than coordinating a massive set up every Sunday. While we will still be in relationship with the staff and teachers at Grant, this also allows us to live more fully into our friendship with Hope Church. They have been a huge encouragement and support to us as we’ve journeyed through the past several years, and we’re so thankful that they are making big accommodations on their side to allow us to have a “home” for our gatherings.

In order to make this work, we will be moving our start time to 9am. That’s 30 minutes earlier than what we currently have in place (yep, our morning gathering actually starts at 9:30, not 9:45 ;-) But this will be great, as it gives you your whole day to play afterwards. And we’ll have the coffee going WAY better than we could ever have at Grant. If you have any questions, please email david@bloom.church

Gungor Acoustic Show


Gungor is hitting the road again this summer on the One Wild Life Acoustic Tour with special guest LaPeer! Each night will be a unique experience. Rather than following an exact set list, Michael and Lisa will be following the vibe of the audience for the show. We hope you'll join us for an unforgettable evening of music!

About Gungor

Michael and Lisa Gungor are curators of the Grammy-nominated musical collective simply known as Gungor. The duo uses their skills as accomplished song writers and multi-instrumentalists to tell honest and forthright stories - some personal and some allegorical. Together they've tapped their considerable musical reserves to blur genres and break expectations creating a unique magnetic expression

Gungor just completed their most ambitious endeavor to date called One Wild Life, which is comprised of three full-length albums - Soul, Spirit, and Body. On August 7, 2015, they kicked off the album trilogy with One Wild Life: Soul, which debuted as the #15 album on the iTunes Alternative chart. It was followed up with One Wild Life: Spirit on March 25, 2016. The final piece of the album trilogy concluded with One Wild Life: Body, which released on September 30, 2016. While each record carries with it its own distinct vibe, the album series presents a body of work that celebrates the adventure and challenges faced by Michael and Lisa Gungor since the release of their album I Am Mountain in 2013.

About LaPeer

A descendent of some of Lapeer's earliest settlers, 22-year-old LaPeer's roots run deep into the heart of the Michigan city that bears his name. The son of a brilliant violinist, LaPeer grew up on music, classic literature and travel - exploring over 30 countries. Of all the experiences that have marked his songwriting, it was a season of wrestling with a relationship trapped in ambiguity that resulted in over a hundred new songs. Over four calendar seasons, LaPeer is releasing four EPs to tell us what became of his story; one of love, loss and everything in between. 

His first fall EP, When Lands Are Golden, debuted on Oct. 6. These six tracks were written simply - all on one guitar - then brought to life by producer Gabriel Wilson (Bethel, Kari Jobe, John Mark McMillan). With instrumentation from musicians Jesse Proctor (John Mark McMillan), Jason Barrows (Josh Garrels), Kendall Fowler, and Jeremy Larson (Sleeping at Last, Violents), the EP features thick 80’s synth pads, rich string arrangements, and effortless melodies. "Heart Haunting," the debut single, was recently added to the Starbucks "Coffeehouse" Spotify playlist and can be heard throughout Starbucks locations worldwide. 

LaPeer released the winter installment of his seasonal EP series, In Blistering Cold on Feb. 24. Fans can look forward to the third and fourth EPs of the set this spring and summer.

Cries From Syria Film

Cries From Syria is a searing, comprehensive account of a brutal five-year conflict from the inside out, drawing on hundreds of hours of war footage from Syrian activists and citizen journalists, as well as testimony from child protestors, leaders of the revolution, human rights defenders, ordinary citizens, and high-ranking army generals who defected from the government. Their collective stories are a cry for attention and help from a world that little understands their reality or agrees on what to do about it. A documentary by Evgeny Afineevsky, director of the Oscar-nominated film Winter on FireCries From Syria premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
