Josh is a person Tap is being created for . . . Josh grew up in an evangelical church in the midwest and moved to Bend after college to live the outdoor lifestyle and find work. He’s settled in and found work at Starbucks – despite what everyone says, you can’t just study whatever you want in college and then immediately find your dream job. Going to church hasn’t occurred to him since he graduated from his youth group and went to college. He just doesn’t see the point; he likes the friends he has and gets to go on adventures each weekend. If he has a spiritual life, he feels it most in the great outdoors, so why bother with an awkward church service?
If you connect with Josh’s experience or know someone who may, consider trying Tap or inviting a friend or family member. As Morgan Schmidt, Director of Teens and 20-Somethings shares: Tap will be a worshipping community that includes and engages emerging generations through storytelling, music, liturgy, and open dialogue about faith and doubt . . . Tap will provide safe, sacred space for individuals to belong and grow together as a community . . .
Tap begins Sunday, September 13 @ 6:00pm in Heritage Hall and Sunday, August 23 following worship we’ll have a Q&A time from 11:00-11:30am to answer any questions about this new worship experience.
