The Shaping of Things to Come, by Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost

At our April 4th meeting, where we commissioned our lead teams for three home churches, there was a real sense of anticipation as everyone considered how God had been knitting them together with others over the past few weeks.

The biggest surprise was that everyone seemed to already know what group (tribe?) they should be in! One is referred to as the “blue group”, another is the “red group”, and then there is a “green group”. More colors will be added as more house churches are launched, but we don’t expect to have to go through the same process again since future groups will be branched off from already existing groups.

So what do things look like now?

Our three house churches meet weekly – (You can e-mail me at the above address to get contact info for the lead teams); The lead teams for each church meet weekly in “triads” (groups of three – one from each house church); and all the house churches get together for a “Gathering” on the last Saturday of the month at 5:00 p.m. for food, informal worship time, and sharing of stories. This will happen at the Isanti County Historical Society building at the Fairgrounds in Cambridge, EXCEPT for July 25th when we will meet at a lake for baptisms. These monthly Gatherings are open to anyone, so freely invite people to come hang out with us for that!

Here are some pics from our Sonrise Service at the Paul’s Lake landing on Easter morning.


It began and ended with a blast (I use the term loosely) of the Shofar, and included a bonfire, and some resurrection songs.
