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.

WHAT IS THE THEME OF THE NEXT ENCOUNTER?
“Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.” -Psalm 40:5
Preparation for Christmas is an important theme for Advent, but Advent is so much more. Advent gives us a vision of our lives as Christians and shows us the possibilities of life.
The vision of life that Advent gives us is twofold; it looks back to the first coming of Christ at Bethlehem, and it looks to the future when Christ will come again. In the interval between these two events we find meaning for our life as a Christian.
The whole theme of Encounter: Wonder is about having childlike faith and being in awe and wonder of who God is and where He’s going to take us.
