Simple Church started with an idea that was, well, simple. Church around a dinner table. They begin with prayer and sharing communion together. Then they eat. The meals, unsurprisingly, are simple: generally soup and bread. Ingredients come from a local farmer who grows produce on land leased from the church.
Church members make the bread. Meeting around a dinner table gives space and opportunity for the members of Simple Church to share ideas and stories with one another.
We vote for different people. We have different positions. In a commuter community like Grafton — where much of the workforce travels to Boston — it is easy for people to hide in their houses when they are home. Simple Church, and its dinner church model, provides an opportunity for residents to connect in community.
It was a challenging start for Kerzee, as he grew the church the old-fashioned way: by going door to door. But his invitations enticed many hoping for meaningful connection, and recently Simple Church and Rev. A third campus opens in East Dallas, Texas, in early October, Josh Esparza leads that effort. As part of its ethos of simplicity, Simple Church does not own a building.
Church meals take place at various locations, allowing for space to meet the needs of the people gathered. Similarly, the pastors seek to keep the congregation free of financial entanglements. Monasteries of antiquity often produced products like wine in order to fund their communities.
Simple Church produces artisan bread, websites, and runs a wood-fired pizza truck. We evangelize through bread. The bread that supports their community provides a great analogy for who they are, according to Kerzee. The flour and the water: one is chalky; one is wet. Salt makes you thirsty. Water quenches thirst. Yeast is this weird living thing we ingest in our bodies.
The mix of ingredients that forms Simple Church creates a special kind of intimacy. Find out more about how your privacy is protected. Oct Sales Ended.
