fuel the next season of your soul

Do you need a warm place to process the pain caused by rough experiences with church or religion?

We are a community of people who are trying to process and heal and help others do the same. We believe we get it wrong if we aren't Christians who are a Christ-like people. We believe that becoming a learner of the ways of Jesus is the only way to truly lead, love and live. 

So bring your story to a safe place by the campfire

Let's get back to simply following Jesus together.

WHAT

Evenings around the fire sharing, learning the ways of Jesus, encouraging and praying for each other, and turning our hearts back to God in simple worship. Bring something to share for cooking on the fire if you want to, and bring an instrument if you want to have music.

WHO

People who have been through a rough religious experience and want to grow to be like Jesus. Kids are welcome and we will share babysitting for $5/child (includes a Jesus-focused kids time). PLEASE RSVP IF YOU ARE BRINGING KIDS

WHEN

Select Sundays at 6 p.m. – See next dates on this page.

WHERE

Mark and Erin's House: 5817 Shepard Cir, Champlin, MN 55316. Open directions in Google Maps.

WHY

To allow God to heal us and help us rekindle our love and passion. To give each other permission to dream again of what ministry and the church can look like. To demonstrate that church isn't about sermons or buildings, but about relationships and following the ways of Jesus. To invite people to help create community, and realize they are made for more.

Neighbors Church (Year Round)


Let's make close friends

Neighbors Church (Year Round)


Let's make close friends

connect with your neighbors irl

The whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
— Galatians 5:14

do you feel like your missing something when it comes to connecting with your neighbors? 

The neighborhoods of today can seem drastically different than those of your childhood. Gone are the days where kids would play in the street for hours and moms would read a book on the front porch with a refreshing lemonade. 

Your neighborhood may feel more like casual acquaintances than life-long friends. We experience closing garages, drive-by waves and very little real-life conversations with the people we live closest to. 

 

what if your neighborhood could be different? 

We need friends – real life, close friends. "Social networks" abound, but the crushing crowd of updates, hashtags, likes, and comments don't cancel out our loneliness (source). In the search for connectedness, we surrender real opportunities for community to a flurry of digital interruptions (see phubbing).

It's time to be neighbors again. It's time to dial up the compassion and realize many of our neighbors are going through things worse than we are. Some are struggling in deep ways – and they could use a friend. A close friend.

Every problem is a relationship problem, and we have a relationship problem. Let's become neighbors again. We need a rebirth of community.

What if the neighborhood was the church?

When it comes to knowing our neighbors in real life, it's going to take more than a simple wave as we drive by or lending that cup of sugar every once in a while. We'll need to jump in and invest in relationships right where we live.

Here at Neighbors Church, we make it easy. We help neighborhood leaders start Bible studies and churches in their homes right in the middle of the neighborhood. Together, we create great places to invest in relationships and become friends with neighbors. Neighborhood churches exist to make the neighborhood become even better than we remember. 


get connected with your neighborhood church

At Neighbors Church, our goal isn't to start one large church drawing from many different neighborhoods. We are passionate about helping you find a home church right in your neighborhood. We're all about empowering you to build friendships and become neighbors right where you live. 

We know that process to finding the right church can feel big and overwhelming.  That's why we're here to help. We'll help you find the closest Neighbor Church so that you can start building friendships in your neighborhood.


Love (with action) your neighborhood

Underground Churches


Underground Churches


CREATE launches churches specifically designed to reach the lost, last and least. We believe Jesus is pursuing every person in every nook and cranny of society. Because we focus on niche communities of people, we have churches with names, locations, and domain names that some people may find unsettling. However, we are committed to go to the places that Jesus would go, eat with the people Jesus would eat with, and create church for the people farthest from the organized church. For now, some of these churches are only known about by the people who currently belong in these niche communities and our members.

CREATE Church Online is a Minneapolis-based online missional church for people who are looking for a convenient, personal way to follow Jesus together and change their communities.

Minneapolis Online Church

The first Missional Online Church

Join the original social network: the church

CREATE online church is a simple, participatory experience. Here's three things you should know:

  1. We keep things simple: We read and discuss one chapter of the story of Jesus together. We discuss our 6 practices and we pray for each other. There's no big production to watch, just an authentic spiritual experience with other people interested in following the ways of Jesus.

  2. Yes, this really is church. Relationships with each other and with God were of the highest priority in the 1st church as described in the book of Acts. That's why instead of sermons, performers, and spectators we have conversations. 

  3. Our mission: to be sent, good news people where we live, work and play. 

  4. We recommend clicking the "Camera" button when you come in so we can talk face to face. "Listen only" will be automatically enabled, and you can turn on your "Talk" button when you want to share. Feel free to use the "Room Chat" as well. Your messages are only visible to the people who are in each room at the same time you are.
