Our meeting structure is much more similar to what we find recorded in Acts and other places in scripture than the typical church service in our modern day. The first Christian congregations often met in relatively small groups in someone’s home where they would have a meal together, pray, read scripture, and discuss its contents. This is our model as well. While we don’t criticize or reject a more formal and typical church structure, our goals and structure are simply different approaches to gathering together as believers and growing the Kingdom of God.
For our meetings, we have a family friendly potluck dinner followed by a time of reading scripture, commentaries, and some discussion. There is an area for kids to play or they are welcome to join, especially older kids. Beyond the weekly meetings, we are focusing our efforts and resources on building out ministries through a parallel society approach. More on these can be found under Ministries and Philosophy. For those that choose to donate time, money, or other resources through The Agora, it will mostly be directed to these ministries and outreach programs.
Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to come join us. While we’d love to hear from you first, all are welcome to come unannounced as well, provided we are meeting at that time.
