The Deconstructed Church – Rooted In Ritual

Rituals mark sacred turning points in our lives. They can help us make meaning of celebrations, losses and transitions. As new parents to Jesus, Mary and Joseph could feel weary for what lies ahead, but perhaps these sacred rituals — and those who bear witness to them—bolster them and give them courage for the journey.


Welcome to church!

“Church?” you may be asking yourself. Yes. Church. Traditionally, “church” was a building. But, we live in a digital age where many of us don’t even go to a building for work anymore, let alone for church. So, this digital space is not just standing in for church, we’re declaring this little bit of the internet as sacred space for you and anyone else who might be seeking the sacred.

Whether you missed church on Sunday, you’ve never stepped into a church or perhaps you’ve been burned in a church, come on in. Maybe you’re deconstructing or reconstructing your faith. Maybe you just need a little time spent on sacred things. You’re welcome here. This church is yours.

Engage. Explore. Meditate. Breathe in all that God has for you.  Read, watch, listen and learn from each element in your own order and your own pace. We believe the Early Church had it right. “Church” really is God’s people coming together to learn about living (and as a result living) a life of love for God and people. Thanks for gathering with us.

The pastoral staff at Engage: A Church Movement helps assemble this space. If you have any questions, you can contact a pastor at engagesouthkc@gmail.com or text 833-912-0460.

Have a prayer request? Text in your request to 833-912-0460.
