WHAT IS ENCOUNTER?
Encounter is InterVarsity’s weekly large group. The purpose of Encounter, through transformation by the Gospel, is to grow a personal relationship with God through prayer, scripture, and worship and to foster compassion for all of God’s family.
Everybody's welcome! Please come join us on Thursdays at 8pm PST on Zoom!
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
At the start of the night, the worship team will open up with some music. This is an opportunity to reflect on and give thanks for all God has done for us. Feel free to sing along or just sit and watch. All we ask is that you help us prevent lag by muting yourself.
After worship, you'll have a chance to learn about who God is and encounter ideas on a better way to live. We usually have a speaker call in to give us a talk, but sometimes we might do small groups instead. Lastly, we'll close up with some more worship!
When we're finished, some of us usually play games or hang out. You're always welcome to join!
