Kingdom Communities are small groups of people who commit to worship together, care for one another, and serve on mission together in whatever way the Spirit of God leads them. This is what we believe it means to be the church.
Here you will find several different kingdom communities to connect with and empower you in your calling to be the church.
HOPE Clothes Closet – 4:00-5:00 PM on Sundays at the CO-OP – A ministry to provide basic needs to the neighborhood like individual and family hygiene packs, laundry soap packets for those with access to laundry facilities, and all types of clothing, even baby/kids clothing and toys. Through serving, listening, praying, and celebrating victories, those in need come to see God’s love and care for them.
Common Table – 5:00 PM on Sundays at the CO-OP – A time for anyone to be known and find a place of belonging. During this time over a shared meal, everyone has a seat at the table. Here all stories are welcomed. Our heart is to provide a spiritual sanctuary for every kind of person while enjoying a meal, sharing our lives, and learning how to walk with Jesus. Our hope is those seeking and hungry walk away feeling not only their stomachs full but, more importantly, their hearts as well.
Reality – 6:00 PM on Wednesdays at the St. Matthews – A fellowship of people who gather for informal worship, in-depth bible study, and inclusive community. We seek to learn how to experience and encounter God in our daily living and how to love others like He does.
Heart of Lubbock House Church – Every 2nd Saturday at 6:30pm at the Stice’s home (1917 30th st) – We have opened our home to be a place to experience community, connection, and family. We desire to create a space of acceptance and belonging with anyone that comes through the front door. Each week, we gather to share a meal, our lives, and words of encouragement to live on mission. Our hope is that everyone that comes through our home encounters Jesus and is captured by His love and grace.
Hope Works – We try to help create possible economic engines called micro-businesses for our community or for people in our community. Right now, our focus is empowering and equipping individuals experiencing financial poverty who live in the Heart of Lubbock neighborhood.
Elevate HOPE – Monday-Friday from 3:00 PM-5:00 PM at the CO-OP – We are a community of leaders that created this after school program because we desire to help each individual child and youth know more about who they are who they are created to be. By forming opportunities for them to pursue their God-given talents, abilities, and purpose, we get to see that become a reality. Here are just a few ways we do that: small groups where we discuss life topics; sports, games, and working as a team; fine arts opportunities (music, art, writing, etc.); dance and creative movement; drama; special events and projects.
Tattoos and Jesus – 12:00 PM on Saturdays at Death and Taxes Tattoos – This space, this time is an opportunity to study more about God’s Word in a non-religious and open environment. It is a Bible study group created for those who are hungry and want to learn as much as possible about God’s Word. We like to keep it simple and use an online course to guide our study with plenty of time afterwards to discuss the lesson.
Hardcore Bible Study – Tuesday’s @ 7:00pm at CO-OP Church. Scott Latham teaches an in-depth bible study that creates discussions about what scripture is really saying.
