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.
We place a high emphasis on hospitality and welcome, worship, communion, and listening to the Scriptures.
When you come to a Bloom gathering (we meet in the basement of Hope Community Church) you’ll probably feel a bit like you walked into a living room. That’s intentional. We’re not trying to manufacture a mega-cool event. We’re trying to create a space where we can encounter God and each other in “the beauty of holiness.” Our gatherings are sacred yet lighthearted times where we are formed together by and for God.
We sing songs… We pray prayers… We say creeds… We pass the peace… We engage in silence… We hear the Scriptures… We break bread… We go as “sent ones”…
It’s formation. All of it.
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
