Slow church? Small church? Simple church? Still church?

To us, these words Slow, Small, Simple and Still represent our commitment to take our time, to ignore our world’s definitions of success, to focus on relationships and all the basic things that really make life worth living, and to stay connected with those who have walked this road ahead of us. We don’t want to leave people behind just because they can’t keep up; we don’t want to grow so big we lose track of each other’s names; we don’t want to get lost in the frantic; we don’t want to reinvent the wheel.

To us, these words signify “rest”. We believe church should provide space for us to slow down and become like small children again, a place where we can remember the simple joys of relationship with one another, a time for stillness before the One who created us all.
