It's about people living into their Kingdom-callings that extend out far beyond accepted definitions of "ministry."

What does it mean to "live" in your neighborhood? In this age of garage door openers, fences to separate houses and a hectic lifestyle how do we live in our neighborhoods in such a way that our neighbors get a complete picture of the good news of Jesus?

Thursday evenings are special for us because one of our neighbors hosts an open table for dinner. Her generous spirit and inspiring cooking ability always make for a delicious and delightful evening.

A year ago, one of our neighbors lost her husband and said, “Thanks for being with me this last year. I believe God has put me on a journey where I know I need to look up to Him.” This is what excites us – people on a journey with others in seeking and following Jesus, our source of joy and life.
