What to Expect
Our services are a time for us to gather as a community, encounter God, connect with each other, and remember the story we’re a part of.
Perhaps the primary activity of the church in our day is to become aware of Christ – among us, within us, and displayed in every person and in all of creation – and to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit. That is what we are doing when we gather together in worship, when we are sent out from the table to live full lives in Christ, in our work and in the spaces in which we live.
The invitation extended to us by Christ is to find life and freedom, an inspired vision for our life and our world, to receive the divine imagination, and we do that through increasing our awareness of Christ and receiving the fullness of the Spirit. We do that together. And that is the church.
So, come take your place. Bring every doubt and shame and fear. Bring your hopes and dreams; bring your disappointments and your heartache. Come fully alive, breathe deep the breath of Christ, and receive all the grace and compassion and healing that you can hold. Be alive, Church. Be aware of the wonder of your existence and the reality that you are so intensely loved.
Come to the table.
Your nursery age child will be shown the love of Christ through song, playtime and prayer. This is the starting point of children learning community with friends.
PRE K - K
Your child will love everything the Bloom team has in store for them! Community continues with games, fellowship, Bible verses, crafts, and activities all based on God's Word, taught at a child's level in a small group format.
1ST- 5TH GRADE
Students at this age will enter the Bloom Kids program to find a community with their peers and leaders who welcome them and become a presence in their lives. Kids jump right in and get involved in the large group "rally" where they learn foundational teaching of Christ through a Bible-based lesson, activities and games. Following the "rally" the kids participate in a small group time which provided further discussing and what it means to be a Christ-follower as a way of life.
During the morning gathering, on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, all middle and high school students at Bloom are invited to their own Sunday Formation time, which includes community building, discussion of scripture, and prayer. (When appropriate, middle and high school students split during this formation time for their own specific discussions due to the different needs of each age group.) On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, students are encouraged to attend the larger Bloom gathering with their families for the purpose of growing in and experience the life and liturgy of the corporate Church. Additionally, each 4th Sunday, students are invited to brunch together with the student leadership team.LEARN MORE
