Missional Communities expressing what it means to BE the church in their area
Several Missional Communities working together to uniquely express the gospel in their area is what we call an Expression, and it's led by the MC leaders and local elders. These Expressions gather together at different times and in different ways for equipping, worship, training and to jointly serve their area.
Several of our Expressions gather in their part of town on Sunday mornings once a month. These are gatherings full of encouragement, as MCs share what Jesus is doing in their neighborhoods, pray for each other and celebrate together.
Our current and emerging Expressions (from North to South)
In everything from sprawling apartment complexes to affluent neighborhoods, we are learning what it means to reorient our lives around Jesus' mission of making disciples in Federal Way, Browns Point, NE Tacoma and Edgewood.

Every Expression starts as one Missional Community, and we have several MCs at that stage in places like Dupont, Steilacoom, Edgewwod, etc. And new MCs are getting started all the time.
