What can you expect at a MOW Gathering?
We love the Holy Spirit and welcome Him to every gathering. We believe He is the administrator of all we do. We believe Jesus is the Head of the Church, not a pastor or leader. We believe the Father has a dream to accomplish on the earth, and we want to be a part of it in anyway we can!
We value family... old and young. We value the Body of Christ and the many facets of what that reflects of Jesus. We are transdenominational... expecting to grow more and more into a people that reflect Jesus and not a movement or denomination.
We value relationships and take time for that during each of our gatherings... for more than a handshake! Our best friends and colleagues are those we get to do Kingdom with.... all kinds of things... not just meetings, but family fun, worship, intercession, and vision!
We are often asked "Is MOW a Church?" The answer has always been, "I don't know, is it?" The Kingdom is released. The Power of God is evidence. Relationships are formed and cultivated. The Gifts of The Holy Spirit flow freely. People are trained and equipped. Disciples are made. Salvations, healings, miracles, ministry to the brokenhearted and poor happens all the time. We pray. We teach and are taught. We have testimonies of God's Grace.... and we love... so, are we a "Church?" You can answer that easily after one visit... of course we are! We absolutely are a Tribe with people who indicate MOW as their family in all six continents of the world. We do believe that we are a part of "The Church" that Jesus is buildig around the earth!
Kids are welcome to come. We encourage them to participate and encourage the parents to watch them.
Parking has been an interesting situation in many of our gatherings... but God always accomodates.
We are family, so we have no protocol for what you must wear to our gatherings.
We have Merges, MOWGroup, Tribe and local congregations who are part of our family throughout the region. We encourage you to become a part of the whole family! See the calendar for when and where those gatherings are happening this week and weekend.
We are a gathering of hungry people who are desperate for a daily encounter with God. We want to be the Church that Jesus started and not given to names, systems, or denominational expectations. We love the Holy Spirit and welcome enthusiastically to our gatherings, whether it’s a large group or just a few getting together for fellowship. We love each other and have come from all kinds of different walks in our lives. We are normal people, some from very broken lives, some from crazy backgrounds, some who’ve been exposed to the Holy Spirit and some who haven’t … our common gathering point is Jesus. We love Him and love to worship and adore him both in song, but also in so many ways… like loving each other… touching the broken and sick around us… and praying for one another both in person and when we are away from each other. We want to look like Him… not just what He did… but how He lived in poured out love and joy. We welcome you to come and be a part of our gatherings!
Our regular “Saturday nights at 6pm” start with sharing food together (feel free to bring food to share) we then gather for worship, ministry, etc.
We love you dearly and want to facilitate these gatherings where He leads and we follow… that “Comfortable with Awkward place!” See you there!
