We will even offer regular “meet and greets” that will provide opportunities to meet others who may be interested in connecting at this level. On average, PODS meet monthly, attend public gatherings together, and keep in touch during the week.
Prayer Collective
We approach it differently but most of us approach with mysterious hope and find strength from the community and spiritual connection. Learn more
Very unorthodox approaches, this isn’t grandma’s old prayer group on Wednesday nights before church dinner, but on the other side of deconstruction, community prayer can be illuminating experiences, many participates feel they have cleared out the bullshit to really seek the Divine.

Can you identify?

  • I have more questions than answers.

  • I’m not sure I believe all this stuff.

  • I feel and deeply believe in God’s love for me and that’s about it.

  • I experience suffering more than joy.

  • I find joy in the mystery of the unknown.

  • I feel misunderstood.

  • I need people who can relate to how I feel spiritually.

  • I’m a bad person or so I’m told.

  • I don’t belong in church.

  • I love my church but not sure if I’m wanted, given how I feel.

  • I’m sick of division and believe for something different.

If you answered yes to any of these, this might be the group for you. Most of all, you get to be yourself, and figure it all out with the rest of us.
