This week in The Gathering and Sanctuary worship, we’ll examine how the prophet, Elijah, experienced the presence of God — just when he needed it most. Rather than in dramatic events, Elijah experienced God as a “still, small voice.” How can we make more space to experience God in our lives today?
This Sunday in The Gathering (Lance is on vacation) and Sanctuary worship, we’ll spend some time with the story of Jacob and Esau and we’ll focus on an event in Jacob’s life that was so transforming that he took on a new name: Israel, which means One who strives with God. All night long he wrestled with himself and all night long he wrestled with a mysterious stranger whom he knew to be the very presence of God — tangible and touchable. I look forward to sharing with you on Sunday and I invite you to bring your struggles with you to the time of worship.

We love laughter and no-holds-barred messages that question the answers and unmask the illusions as we search for the next chapter together. This is 55 minutes of authentic storytelling, great coffee, and meaningful conversation — with the music of Brad Thompson (Fort Worth Star Telegram’s “Best Local Musician”) and the Revolution Band doing some of your favorite pop, classic rock, and acoustic songs.
We’re passionately inclusive here at eleven:eleven, whether you identify as LGBTQ+ or straight, conservative or liberal, Christian or agnostic, young or old — or anywhere in between and beyond. We’re casual, “come as you wish,” non–traditional, and always curious about kindness, justice, our stories, Jesus’ life — and how to do our lives better.
Here’s your invitation to reconnect your spirit without disconnecting your mind. We believe in the universal love of God and your next adventure. Join this growing community and become part of our story — and let’s see where it takes us! #1111FUMCFW
