Our Common Life Workshop 6: Retreat

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic_v2-01.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_v2-01.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_v2-01.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!

Our Common Life Workshop 5: Prayer & Silence

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic_v2-01.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?

This OCL Class will be connected with our Lenten commitment to prayer. So we will be discussing what Bloom believes about prayer, how to use the prayer book, and spend some time together in prayer.

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

Our Common Life Workshop 4: House Church and Relationships

Our Common Life Workshops_Reg Graphic_v2-01.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 experience a house church for the first time, or come to celebrate and learn more about how your house church can encounter the Spirit and grow into a more robust community of faith. We hope that this will be a time of centering on such a central part of the life of the Christian faith and be inspired to give yourself to it afresh.

Note: This workshop will include a light dinner.

Fourth Advent Candle Service

Fourth Advent Candle Service

Sometimes following the Church calendar means encountering some goofy calendar mishaps, such as this year when the 4th Sunday of Advent also happens to fall on the same Sunday as Christmas Eve. Yet, we still desire to gather and make room for lighting the fourth Advent candle together as a community, because it is one that marks the peace of Christ among us. The holiday season is usually a busy one... from Christmas parties, purchasing gifts, wrapping up work projects, traveling, and time with family. And we also recognize that for some it can be a time that is also lonely or painful, because it is a reminder of fracture or hurt in relationships. So we are hoping amidst the hustle and bustle of the season, we can provide a moment to gather as a community for a quiet pause and lighting of the fourth Advent candle. We invite you to join the Bloom staff Saturday evening, December 23rd, at 5:00 PM for some quiet reflection, prayer, Advent worship, and the lighting of the peace candle. We hope this will serve as a brief, quiet pause in your Advent season, to prepare your heart and mind for the coming of the Lord on Christmas Eve. Join us if you are able.

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!

Temperament & Giftings Class

Temperament & Giftings Class_reg-01.jpg

This equipping on temperament and giftings is designed to help you learn about your inner drives and motivations and how that influences your spiritual life and practice and whatever work, ministry, and dreams God has called you to. This has been hugely helpful for the staff to understand how each of us is wired and how that maps onto our interaction with God, so if you have ever wondered about those things for yourself this is a great starting point.

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!

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
