A big “thank you” goes out to all who made it to Lexington for the Simple Church Alliance Christmas Gathering!

I was so encouraged by the food, music, scripture, poems, and stories that were shared–even if it was only for a brief time! It’s a joy to be on the journey with you all! May you have all an anticipation-filled last few days of waiting on Jesus to come, and then … A… Read More »Christmas Gathering – A BIG Thanks!

Karla and I would like to you to join us for a special evening of music with Zach Winters, Turtledoves, and our friend Dana Vogel. I learned of Zach Winters several years ago when he was touring with Josh Garrels, another artist that Karla and I have enjoyed. We immediately became fans of Zach after hearing his songs which reflect both the beauty and truth of God. While we spent months in the hospital with our daughter Wylie, Zach’s album Love is a Garden really encouraged us during a difficult season of life. His song Give Thanks (below) was my… Read More »Join us for Coffee and Music with Zach Winters, Turtledoves, and Dana Vogel – July 22

God is equipping individuals and families to serve full-time outside these structures as local missionaries helping to plant and lead simple/organic/house churches.
We all know it’s important to meet together often as believers for our mutual encouragement. This is true and good. What’s not necessarily true and good, is that many of us equate this with Sunday worship service.
UPDATE: THIS SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED. STAY TUNED AND WE WILL UPDATE FOLKS ABOUT A NEW DATE. MEANWHILE, ENJOY ZACH’S MUSIC WHILE QUARANTINED! Earlier this year, I was excited to see that Zach Winters released a new album. I first heard of Zach Winters when I noticed a tweet from one of my favorite songwriters, Josh Garrels, giving a shout out to Zach Winters and the album Monarch. I checked it out and immediately became a Zach Winters fan, as did Karla. When his newest album, Love is a Garden, came out, I immediately purchased it and knew right… Read More »Zach Winters with Sylvie, Dana Vogel – POSTPONED
