The Church is not an event to attend. Rather the church is a people to belong to. The Sunday Gathering is where the church, made up of people, gathers together to worship God.
WHEN SHOULD I COME?
Sojourn Montrose has one Sunday Gathering at 10:00am. Don't worry about being a few minutes early or late.
WHERE SHOULD I GO?
Sojourn Montrose gathers at the Landmark River Oaks Theatre, one of Montrose’s most iconic venues. On Sunday mornings, be sure to look for the sign that says Sojourn Montrose along with our anchor logo.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
Parking can be tough in Montrose. Fortunately, Sojourn Montrose has the use of multiple lots. Across the street is a large parking garage that is free to our people. Also, any of the parking in the shopping center is fair game.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Our Sunday Gatherings are casual and familial experiences; we have kids running around and plenty of people from all walks of life. Please wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. There’s a good chance our AC will be running in the theatre, especially during the Texas summer. If you get cold easily, it might be good to bring a sweater or light jacket with you!
WHAT ARE MY CHILDCARE OPTIONS?
We provide childcare during our Sunday Gatherings for children ages 0-5. Our background-checked volunteers ensure that children are loved, cared for, and taught simple, gospel-centered truth. Because we believe children benefit greatly from seeing their parents engage with God and his people, we encourage parents to bring children over the age of 5 into the sanctuary with us. Sojourn is a family of families, and we don’t expect perfectly behaved children! If your child is being disruptive, please don’t be embarrassed. The sound of children is the sound of life and a future!
WHAT HAPPENS ON SUNDAY?
Every Sunday, we sing songs together, we pray both privately and corporately, we hear the Bible preached, and we partake of the sacrament of Communion.
Every Sunday we take Communion, and in this sacrament, God welcomes His children to share a meal with Him. We believe this meal is for followers of Jesus. In accordance with Scripture, Sojourn offers bread and wine (along with a gluten-free option and a non-alcoholic option).
In addition to communion, we periodically celebrate Baptism, a sacrament having to do with entrance into the Church. These sacraments are God's pledge to us, divinely ordained means of communing with God, our public vows of submission to the crucified and resurrected Christ, and anticipations of Christ's return and renewal of all things.
Every Sunday, one of our elders (pastors) or church planting residents will preach a sermon from Scripture. At Sojourn, we believe the Bible is the authoritative and incorruptible written word of God, and through the Bible, we see Jesus most clearly revealed. Thus, we gather together for the sake of listening, thinking upon, and engaging with what’s being preached (exhortation) so as to live out the commands of Christ within the context of the local church (application).
Scripture instructs us to teach, admonish, and address one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). Our singing is an outward artistic expression of truth, a visible testament to the reality of the Holy Spirit’s work in our hearts. We sing to express joy and adoration to God, to confess our sin, to lament our fallen state, to remember the grace and mercy afforded by the cross, and to express our desire to obey the commands of Christ. If you’re a guest with us, we invite you to participate inasmuch as you feel comfortable.
