Sunday Gatherings

For nearly 2000 years Sundays have been the traditional gathering day for the local church. At Neighborhood Church we do not believe that one particular day is more important to gather on than another, but we do see the power and importance in a regular and consistent gathering.

On most weeks our Sunday gathering is held in the evenings at 5:00pm. We meet in the chapel of Union Avenue Baptist Church located in the heart of Midtown. A typical gathering lasts until 6:30pm. Here is our Gathering Schedule for 2017.

These gatherings do not all look the same though. We have three types of Sunday experiences at Neighborhood Church.

Worship & Prayer

During these gatherings we focus on honoring God. We sing, we tell stories, we read scripture, we praise him with our prayers. On these Sundays the focus is not so much on what we can learn or ask from of God, but what we can bring to Him in worship. These gatherings are typically the first Sunday of the month.

Teaching Times

Our teaching times are more of what you would expect as a traditional Sunday gathering of the church. The anchor piece of these services are usually a 30 minute teaching surrounded with singing, communion, announcements, etc. These teaching gatherings are often held at least twice, sometimes three times, per month.

Meals & Fellowship

Our 5:00pm meeting time lends itself nicely to a meal together. These experiences are for the entire family held in the Fellowship Hall of Union Avenue Baptist. We sit and share a meal together and then usually over a dessert or two we discuss our lives, our stories, Jesus, scripture, and more. These conversations are usually held in the context of our current teaching series. This gathering is often held five times yearly.

Kids Place

Our 5:00pm meeting time lends itself nicely to a meal together. These experiences are for the entire family held in the Fellowship Hall of Union Avenue Baptist. We sit and share a meal together and then usually over a dessert or two we discuss our lives, our stories, Jesus, scripture, and more. These conversations are usually held in the context of our current teaching series. This gathering is often held five times yearly.

Crossroads

Crossroads is the middle and high school ministry of Neighborhood Church and is a collaborative effort along with our sister Midtown churches: Christ City Church, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, and Union Avenue Baptist Church, along with Soul for the City.

Crossroads began as a dream to see Midtown's teenagers experience the love of Jesus so that their lives, their youth culture, and the broader culture flourish in Christ. Crossroads provides a fun, safe, and thoughtful context for interested teenagers to:

  • Experience enjoyable, authentic, and loving community

  • Consider the story of Jesus Christ and his offer of a whole-life relationship with them

  • Consider growing in a relationship with Christ – discovering their life potential in Christ

  • Consider sharing Christ’s heart for their youth culture.

  • Consider how Christ’s mission “to make all things new” applies to the story of their lives.

  • The high school gatherings are on the first and third Sunday nights of the month at Redeemer Presbyterian Church at 6:45pm. The middle school gatherings are on the second and fourth Sunday nights at Union Avenue Baptist Church from 6:45pm-8:15pm. In addition, there are monthly events and activities.
