It’s been a wild two years! Fear, stress, shutdowns, regulations, and more have upended our world, including our tangible experience of gathering together. Through all of this, we know God has continued to be good and in control, and we have loved the opportunity to gather together each week to celebrate who He is—both in person and online. We’re seeing more people returning to in-person gatherings, which is exciting! With that, we want to take some time this Spring and Summer to extend a warm welcome to those ready and looking to return in person. We understand it can feel strange gathering together after spending so much time apart. It can feel awkward or embarrassing or new after developing other routines. So, this season, we’re providing various opportunities for you to reconnect at Element without judgment or shame. With Spring being a time of newness and rebirth, we’re celebrating not just who Jesus is, but what it means to be in community with one another.

We hope that these events also serve as opportunities to invite others to Element…maybe for the first time! And for those of you watching online, please know we are thrilled to have you join us in any way possible. Our hope and prayer is that wherever you are, you would come to experience the joy and fullness of living in community with others.

It’s the COMEBACK…and you’re invited.

 

Upcoming Events

Series: Never Read A Bible Verse

May 29th Sunday
New Sermon Series: Never Read A Bible Verse*

There are some Christians who say that those who don’t believe the Bible or trust in Jesus, “just need to read the bible,” but what happens if they do and it has the opposite effect? There are many things in the bible that are written that are hard to understand without having a clear cultural understanding of the context in which it was written; many Christians even assume the Bible says things that it does not because we fail to understand context. Cultural changes over time can lead to shifts in the way we use certain words, and this makes a difference when reading/translating texts of the Bible. There are a lot of people who do not know or understand the Bible and yet they claim it is filled with nonsense, it is why study of the Bible is important for us…because as I said ultimately the Bible is about Jesus. It shows us who we are and who He is in His person.
