Making Connections

What is church? A place to go? A time on Sunday morning? We're looking to reclaim an identity of church--that being a community of people sharing God's love with the world.

We believe that together, with the help of God's love, we can establish meaningful community and share hope with one another. Rethink Church exists to share stories of how that's happening--even now. We're excited for you to become part of our hopeful community, too.

Let's connect
