The Church Scattered and Gathered
* Update because of Kansas City's current 'Stay in Place' mandate we will be moving to an every week virtual/online Home Church Gathering rhythm starting March 29 - See this resource on how to self organize into smaller units so that your online experience is interactive
Our Sunday Gathering rhythm is Navah “Gathering Sundays” (1st and 3rd) and “Home Sundays” on (2nd and 4th).
On 1st and 3rd Sundays every month our whole Navah family is Gathering in one location as the Father leads us. See the Calendar for updated locations.
For the “Home Sundays” (2nd and 4th Sundays), Navah will be gathering across Kansas City in homes. Many meet with their existing Home Church welcoming friends and neighbors as we love Jesus and one another in our neighborhoods. This environment teaches us to be the church as a family of families where everyone is seen and heard, gives and receives with Jesus at the center. There are currently around 30 of these home gatherings welcoming over 400 people.
If you are part of the Navah Family and would like more information on how to connect to one of these Homes please contact us by filling out the form below.
The Navah team supplies resources for these meetings but we trust the leaders to follow the Spirit as he leads. The time is structured around Acts 2, we love the way Jesus’ first followers expressed prayerful, family on mission in homes and seek to live a similar lifestyle together.
Acts 2:42-47 reads, “They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
We have a resource built around the 'discovery bible study' used all over the world to help center the church around the Bible.
