A place to be formed in the image of Christ for the sake of our neighbors.

We’re committed to creating spaces, in-person and online, where we can be formed to love God and our neighbors more deeply. It takes on lots of shapes, but they’re all intended to help us deepen our journey with Jesus and love for our neighbors.

A community where you'll learn to wrestle with the tensions between the story of God and the stories going on all around us.

Bible Studies & Gatherings.

Meetinghouse Church embraces the call to be formed in the image of Christ for the sake of our neighbors throughout our adult ministries and learning forums, it’s through these opportunities that we stretch and grow our faith while building community with one another.

We don’t always have the answers, but we’re learning to wrestle with the tensions in God’s Word + World. Because of this, we’re always looking for opportunities to learn how following Jesus informs and transforms our life and the lives of our neighbors.

Have we lost sight of the true gospel and replaced it with an idol of rugged masculinity and Christian Nationalism?

Join us for our first Jesus & Justice gathering, a Western-themed gathering grounded in themes from Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation, Dr. Kristin Kobes Du Mez’s sweeping and incisive history and analysis of the last seventy-fire years of white evangelicalism in the United States.

We’ll gather together for Western-themed appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages for the first part, then hear an executive summary of the book from Rev. Dr. Sara Wilhelm Garbers (Senior Associate Minister) before breaking off into table groups to discuss the book’s themes. No need to read the book beforehand.
