They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer…Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,

What is a microChurch?
A microChurch is a small community of believers who gather to study the Word of God, live in fellowship with like-minded believers, and pray (Acts 2:42). We believe they provide the opportunity to meet community and spiritual needs within our Rose Heights family.
Who are microChurches for?
Everyone. We believe microChurches will be places where everyone can find community. Whether you are married, single, parents, a single parent, a senior citizen, or a teen, there is a place for you.
When will microChurches meet?
Depending upon your leader’s availability, we will have microChurches meeting any day of the week, at any time of the week. We will gather weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly based upon the microChurch you join. All microChurches will be asked to maintain a strict time limit for their gathering, not to exceed 90 minutes.
Where will microChurches meet?
The beauty of microChurches is that they can meet wherever people can meet. For those with the gift of hospitality, homes are a great place to meet. Others may meet their microChurch at the park with the kids, for coffee, a meal, online or wherever people desire to meet for fellowship, community, and spiritual growth.
How will microChurches be established?
We will meet with qualified microChurch leaders and gather the identity of their group. Based upon the leader and/or host, the microChurch might be for families, ladies, men, students, parents, etc. We will then seek to connect potential microChurch members with a microChurch family that fits.
What about my children?
We’re excited to announce that we will be providing resources to equip microChurches to lead their children in the topic of the week. microChurches can be creative, securing either a teen or college student, or alternating with adults to lead the children in their activity each week. We believe this will allow parents and children to engage the same Bible passages at their level.
How will microChurches and Small Groups be different?
With the current social distancing requirements, our current small group gatherings will not be offered in the upcoming semester(s) and will not be available on campus. However, we recognize the importance of community and discipleship and believe microChurches are an incredible way to grow as a church family. Unlike small groups, microChurches will focus on continuing the conversation of the current sermon series. Our team will provide resources and discussion questions to direct the conversation within the microChurch. In the future, microChurches will be able to extend their focus into a wider range of topics and studies.
Can my microChurch meet at the church?
Should your microChurch not have a host site and space is available at the Rose Heights Main Campus, you may sign up for a room. All spaces will be limited and will require social distancing, both in the classroom and common areas.
Is there a list of possible individuals who would be available for childcare?
We are working to create a list of individuals who might be available to assist with childcare for microChurches. These individuals are not employed with Rose Heights and any financial arrangements should be made between the individuals and the microChurch participants.
What happens if I don’t like my microChurch?
We understand that not all microChurches are going to be a perfect fit. So, our commitment is to help you find the one that best suits you.
