Encounter Worship Gatherings

We are no longer meeting together for worship gatherings, and are bringing the Encounter Church ministry to a close. Click here to read more.

Like a burning bush, we at Encounter Church are something out of the ordinary that catches people's attention so they can encounter God. Worship gatherings at Encounter are authentic and edgy — and we'll "ignite" a passion to discover what it means to pursue Jesus beyond a weekly event, beyond religion, and in the context of real life.

We invite you to join us for our next Worship Gathering.

What about Kids?

Current Series for Worship Gatherings!

Be challenged to believe that the audacious faith we see in the Bible, the faith that caused a man to pray and see the sun stand still in the sky, is the same faith we can claim for ourselves today. What happens when you dare to ask God for the impossible? Dreams are realized. Lives are transformed. The world is changed. And the impossible happens.

Enjoy some great music and an encouraging message. You'll find a welcoming casual atmosphere designed for you to Encounter God in a real and tangible way. Invite your friends and join us to experience the authentic and creative vibe of Encounter.

What You Can Expect At An Encounter Gathering

At Encounter, you'll find a welcoming casual atmosphere. We invite you to come as you are. Some of us have piercings and tattoos, and we ALL have a past.

Our live music has an edge that expresses we're serious about giving our all in worship. We are passionate about using the arts and media to creatively communicate meaningful truths. Plus, we encourage texting, Facebook, and Twitter during the gathering to make our worship even more interactive.

You'll experience a message that is challenging, yet encouraging, as we invite you to be a part of the conversation. Come as you are, but leave changed — closer to Jesus. Read below about our fun and engaging EncounterKids environments.

We are now meeting on the 2nd and 4th Sunday mornings. As a church without a building of our own,

Kids Love EncounterKids!

While our kids hang out with everyone during the worship time, we have a cool new kids experience during the teen/adult message and discussion time. They can join with other kids their age and engage in fun learning activities that will help them Encounter God and Experience Community in their own way.

For older kids (1st to 6th Grade), we're talking fun music, goofy videos, and plastic balls — but solid stuff on how to be like Jesus and engage our world. When the weather is right, the back yard of the Pattern House is a great place for games and outside activities.

For babies and toddlers (Birth to Kindergarten), we're talking a nurturing, fun, and stimulating environment. All our kids volunteers have been screened and trained so that parents can feel secure.
