WHAT TO EXPECT
They devoted themselves to the apostle's teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
At Mile Square Church, we believe the church isn’t a place; it’s people who gather around Jesus who are sent out to be compelling connections to Christ and the Christian community. We gather in small groups called microchurches on a weekly basis wherever and however we can to worship, grow as disciples of Jesus, and be in community together. This is a deeply authentic and irreducibly simple way to do church as found in Acts 2:42, and we’d love to have you join us.
What's worship like? The worship service is led by the elders of each microchurch. They lead their group through the service which includes an opening prayer, praise song, the apostle's creed, Scripture reading, confession and absolution, offering, the Lord's Supper, and group prayer. The order of service is on the Online Toolkit and is accessible to all worshippers. Conversation is a big part of the experience, particularly during the sermon. Our pastor pre-records a sermon which works in intentional discussion questions to foster reflection and contemplation on God's Word.
When are services? Our microchurches worship on a weekly basis. Currently, two microchurches meet at 10am on Sunday, a third meets at 7pm on Sunday, and a fourth meets on Tuesdays at 7:30pm. Future microchurches may meet at different times on different days of the week.
Where do you meet? Our microchurches worship online and in-person. The online groups utilize Zoom and the in-person group meets in the backyard of the host house.
How big is each group? Our microchurches vary in size, but generally have a group membership of about 10.
