During the four weeks preceding Christmas, our church will be making a spiritual journey – a pilgrimage to the birth of Jesus. Join us at worship on Sunday mornings as we embark on this journey through worship and word together.
We encourage you to download this Advent Devotional Guide that our community is using. Each day has a Psalm, its own scripture passage, and then time to pray for others. We’ve written a few questions at the end of the guide to help us reflect on the daily passage and how we’re experiencing God during this season. Take a few minutes to work through these questions, and if journaling is helpful for you, write your answers down.

The story of Jonah is often considered to be one of the Bible’s greatest children’s stories. The big storm and the big whale. But there’s a lot more to Jonah (the man and the story) than getting swallowed by a giant fish.
God called Jonah to go to the great city of Nineveh and deliver a simple message: Repent or you will die in 40 days. Jonah refused. He hated the people of Nineveh and ran from God. He didn’t want his enemies to repent and be forgiven.
In this 6-week series through Jonah we will explore Jonah’s resistance to God and people, God’s pursuit of Jonah, and the boundary-crossing love that God has for our enemies. If you want to go deeper in this series on Jonah, download our Going Deeper Guide for suggestions on how to learn and experiment with the material.

There’s a lot of talk about hope these days. We hope that we pass the test. We hope that our children behave. We hope for financial security. We are encouraged to hope for a better future. But what does it actually mean to hope? And what does the Bible say about where we should find hope? In this three-part sermon series, we will study different Scriptures that speak of the hope that followers of Jesus have in Christ.
Ways to Participate in the Series
1. Read and meditate on the scripture passage in preparation for each message. Use lectio divina as a way to read the passages. Download a lectio divina guide.
- September 11 – Romans 15:1-13
- September 18 – Psalm 33:16-22
- September 25 – Jeremiah 29:1-14
2. Do a Scripture study on “hope”, tracing the theme of hope through the Old and New Testaments (we recommend using biblegateway.com to search for biblical passages on hope).
3. Write out a prayer for Rhythm, write a poem, draw a picture or bring a photo that illustrates biblical hope (hope grounded in God) during the next 3 weeks to create a canvas of hope.
4. Bring one item/package each week for our friends living on 14th Street.
- September 18 – A new package of mens underwear
- September 25 – A sheet or light blanket
- October 2 – A pair of new or gently used comfortable/durable shoes (mens’ sizes especially) or pair of jeans
Our vision is to partner with God, parents, and the Rhythm Church community in the spiritual formation of our children and families. Each week we strive for children to be encouraged in their walk with God. We take very seriously our responsibility to care for these kids and do everything in our power to keep them safe, supported, and pointed to Jesus.
Rhythm is a church for everyone, for children as much as for adults. We love children, and want to come alongside parents to help them love God and live in the way of Jesus.
Personal Relationship with God
We focus on helping children to have a personal relationship with God, where they learn to listen to God’s voice, learn from the Bible, and understand the character of God.
Working as a Team
We seek to work as a team with parents, volunteers, and the Rhythm Church community in each child’s spiritual formation. Consistency in prayer, communication, and staying connected helps us to work together for the benefit of our children.
Making Space for Jesus
We believe that Jesus is actively at work in each child’s life. We make space in Kids Worship for prayer and listening, and we approach teaching with humility, understanding that Jesus is the true teacher.
Safety at All Times
The safety and wellbeing of our children on Sunday’s is our top priority! Each of our volunteers has gone through a background check and receives ongoing training from the Rhythm Kids Director.
We believe that a child’s experience of the Christian life and church should be fun! Each age group participates in age-appropriate games and crafts. So get ready to have a blast!
