We are African-American, Anglo, Latino, and African. We have folks that are wealthy, folks that are barely making ends meet, and everything in-between. Over half of our congregation is under the age of 25.
Our musicians play just about everything from contemporary gospel to traditional spirituals and even some reggae.
The Good News of Jesus is preached which is a message of hope, grace, and love.
It is a message of radical welcome.
We have people at church that are wearing Sunday best sitting next to people that are experiencing homelessness. We have kids that wear baggy shorts and adults that wear khakis.
Please dress however you are most comfortable. It doesn't matter to us!
Children are beloved full worship participants at All Peoples Gathering Church! We welcome their questions and worries, their noises and wiggles, their leadership and silliness, and their beautiful faith.
We encourage families to sit in the front pews by the prayground space prepared with small tables & chairs, cozy rugs, and lots of craft supplies to help kids of all ages participate fully in God's message of love and grace. You are also more than welcome to move around the sanctuary space throughout the service if your little one needs to be on the move.
Children are encouraged to join up front for a children's message, share their prayers during prayers of the people, and join us in making a joyful noise to the Lord with rhythm instruments. We also welcome their leadership if they are interested in serving as an usher, communion assistant, or scripture reader.
