Encounter is a worship gathering designed to raise-up and support a vibrant community of faith among college aged, single, and young married adults. Because we believe that a heart of worship is integral to the Christian life, we consider Encounter to be a centerpiece of our ministry together. It is certainly a contemporary service – but we also believe that newer and older practices can coexist – and so the service itself can be fairly eclectic; drawing from a wide range of styles and traditions. Whatever it happens to look like week by week, our goal remains the same: that God’s word should be preached and that His name should be made great.
What should you expect? Come as you are, whomever you are. Come expecting that God will meet you there! Encounter is a casual event – and whether you’re a mature believer or simply curious about the Christian faith – you’ll discover a welcoming and thoughtful community to make your home. Encounter happens about twice a month and begins at 6:30pm in the Faith Activities Center (room 150) at FBCA. Childcare is provided.
This fall, we’ll be walking through the Gospel of John.
