Xroads Underground looks a bit different than your average church. That is to say, it looks a bit different than the Church of the 21st century. But before the Jesus movement developed creeds and hierarchies and Chris Tomlin mashups, it was just a small community trying – and sometimes failing- to model themselves after their Christ. For them, this meant sharing meals, befriending the poor, caring for outcasts, and practicing forgiveness. These simple practices proclaimed that a world where peace and justice reign was possible, and in fact, at hand.
At Underground we celebrate and draw from the rich traditions of the Church, as they taken shape over the last 2,000 years. At the same time, we try to remember the essence of what it means to be CHURCH. If you are someone who seeks to live more in tune with the counter-culture way of Jesus, join us for our next series: What We Talk About When We Talk About Church
Together we will explore what it meant to be Church in the wake of the resurrection, and what it means for us today.
