For nearly a year, the idea of Belong Church has been forming, growing, and becoming more of a reality. In a healthy growth cycle, there are moments of growing up and out, as well as moments of growing deep roots. For Belong, this is a time for doing a bit of both. We have been busy growing deep roots, inviting new people to a Wesleyan community of diversity, inclusion, and justice. Now, we're ready to grow up and out in how we express our faith as a community.
At 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, we will have our first worship preview
. This is an opportunity for us to discover who we are, and perhaps glimpse who we will be when we are ready to launch. Generally, a worship preview is an opportunity to test our wings, to gather as a community, and begin to establish traditions and ways of reaching out to God.
Through the fall, we will continue to gather for community events, more worship previews, and opportunities to grow. We expect to launch in early 2017. Until then, you can keep up with us at belongchurch.org
