Extending God's love in creative ways

"Rethink Church" is an invitation. We use that phrase as invitation to rethink participation in a community faith. We also use it as invitation to rethink what comes to mind when we think about church, because we believe that church isn't a place or an event. Church is a group and a movement.

Below are accounts of faith communities embracing church as a movement and reaching out to people in creative ways. Their stories inspire us and we hope they inspire you, too.
