2018 Holiday Schedules_Lexington Web_Downtown Web.png

In light of the holiday season, we will not be hosting a Gathering on December 30. Each year around Christmas, we take some time off to allow our staff time with their families, and to remind ourselves that church is more than a Gathering. If you're interested in finding out why we take time off you can head here. We will be hosting a small Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, which you can find the details for here.

Gatherings will resume on January 6 at 10:00am.

We will host our Personal Finance Seminar for our family of churches on Saturday, January 26 from 9:00am - 3:00pm. The Bible and Jesus speaks regularly about money and possessions.

Our Personal Finance Seminar will provide practical training on how to manage finances as a Christian and will include topics like paying off debt, budgeting, generosity, and investing.

The event will be in our Student Groups Building at 1819 Taylor Street.
