Day of Rest

Once a year, we practice resting as a church family by breaking from our usual rhythms of Sunday gatherings. This is a unique opportunity for us to spend a day resting alongside our community, whether that looks like spending the day outdoors, setting aside specific time to fast & pray, or encouraging one another over a meal. However you choose to spend the Day of Rest, we hope it's a gift that cultivates intimacy with Jesus and his church in new and refreshing ways. For ideas on how you can spend this day resting with others in our church family, check out the resources below.

*On Sunday, July 7th we will not gather for any of our regular gathering times, our normal gathering schedule will resume on Sunday, July 14th.
