WELCOME TO ANTIOCH

As followers of Jesus, we are called to be more than a community that simply gathers on Sunday mornings. We are the body of Christ called to be the representatives of Jesus to the world, which means that our connection on Sunday morning is part of a rhythm that ebbs and flows throughout the week. Our hope is for everyone at Antioch to be meaningfully connected to the body and daily shaped by Jesus through intentional community, authentic spirituality, and missional living.

COMMUNION GROUP = "Common Union"

We gather as Communion Groups to commune with God, practice hospitality toward one another, and remember our vocation as disciples of Jesus. To do this, our communion groups embody four sacraments: the breaking of bread, the recitation of prayers, the partaking of the eucharist, and the apostles teaching. These practices, rooted in the teachings of Jesus, work to form us as disciples of Jesus.

  • Communion with God = Authentic Spirituality
    We believe that praying liturgical prayers allows the spirit to shape our minds using the words of God, and receiving communion aligns our hearts with the mission of Jesus.
  • Hospitality toward one another = Intentional Community
    We believe opening our homes and inviting people to share meals at our tables is akin to the hospitality we see exemplified in the life of Jesus and as such should be practiced by his disciples.
  • Vocation as disciples of Jesus = Missional Living
    We believe that through receiving communion, praying liturgical prayers, and practicing hospitality with one another, we align our hearts and minds with the mission of God and our vocation as disciples of Jesus.
    STRUCTURE
  • On the 1st & 3rd weeks the group meets in a home to share a communal meal and to participate in meaningful conversation. Three prayers shape the course of the evening: the prayer of thanksgiving, the prayer of Christ crucified, and the Lord’s prayer.
  • On the 2nd & 4th weeks the men and women alternate meeting in an environment conducive to the deepening of relationships, and the study of the apostle’s teaching.

Bread & Wine

One of the consistent experiences we witness in the life of Jesus is a practice of sharing communal meals. In fact, it was at the table, amidst a communal meal, through the sharing of BREAD & WINE that Jesus asked us to remember him. Once a quarter we intentionally open our homes and share our tables with the hope of extending hospitality, generosity, and relationship toward one another.
