WHAT IS ENCOUNTER?

The Bible is full of stories of people whose lives were changed by their Encounter with Jesus. From those whose names we know, like the Apostles Peter or Paul, to the nameless ones like the woman at the well or the crippled man on the mat. One thing is certain, an Encounter with Jesus is life changing.

Encounter is a city-wide praise and worship event designed to bring people into the presence of Jesus.

Encounter is a 4 part event that starts with a social gathering. The social time helps bring those participating in Encounter into community with one and other. Unlike other praise and worship events that start with music, Encounter is intentional in building community among participants. After the social time, there is a period of dynamic praise and worship, followed by a teaching, and ending with Eucharistic Adoration.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

While this event focuses primarily on high school teens and young adults, all are welcome to attend.

GRACE

“For the grace of God has appeared, saving all…” -Titus 2:11

God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! We’re being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people he can be proud of, energetic in goodness. – Titus 2:11-14 (MSG)
