Etz Khayim Messianic Fellowship
Our fellowship currently meets in a large home at the Southern edge of Black Forest, not too far from New Life Church and PPCC North. We meet most Saturdays at 10:30am. Please contact us for details on the dates and times of our next meeting.
The character of our meetings is closer to that of an extended family gathering than a formal church or synagogue service. For our Shabbat morning services, we most often include singing and reciting traditional Hebrew prayers and blessings. We sing with live worship, and we include a mixture of traditional Hebrew or Messianic songs, modern worship from anointed Christian sources, and even some traditional hymns, when appropriate. We desire to worship 'in Spirit and Truth'!
We follow the annual Torah reading schedule, and we focus on how the Torah and Messianic writings (New Covenant) apply to us today. We do this through small group discussions facilitated by one of the leaders. We share in a Covenant Meal with Challah and grape juice distributed to all who wish to participate. We believe that when we do this, we not only do so in remembrance of Yeshua's sacrifice for us, but that we are brought closer (in common union) to God and to each other. We always have a fellowship meal (Oneg) following the service.
We celebrate the Feasts of the Lord (Passover; Shavuot (Pentecost); Rosh HaShannah; Yom Kippur; Feast of Tabernacles). We have a heart for the land, the people, the Scriptures and the God of Israel.
We believe in the power of effective prayer, and we always provide the opportunity for individual and corporate prayer and intercession.
Our hope is that as God leads and provides, and as we continue to seek His will individually and as a community, He will provide the resources, both spiritually, and physically, for us to grow in depth, breadth, and impact for the Kingdom in these latter and most critical of days.
