Our fellowship meets in a shared facility with Living Hope Covenant Church located at 6750 North Union Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80918. Beginning in March 2022, we will meet at this location on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:30 AM. On alternate weeks we will have Shabbat services in small group gatherings in homes, either on Shabbat evening (Friday evening) or Saturday morning. If you plan to visit Etz Khayim, it would be best to do so on either the first or third Shabbat. This will allow you to experience the totality of our fellowship: the Body of Yeshua that we call Etz Khayim. Please feel free to call our contact number and someone will get back to you.
The character of our meetings is closer to that of an extended family gathering than a formal church or synagogue service. For our Shabbat morning services, we most often include singing and reciting traditional Hebrew prayers and blessings. We sing with live or video worship, and we include a mixture of traditional Hebrew or Messianic songs, modern worship from anointed Christian sources, and even some traditional hymns, when appropriate. We desire to worship 'in Spirit and Truth'!
We follow the annual Torah reading schedule, and we focus on how the Torah and Messianic writings apply to us today. We do this through small group discussions facilitated by one of the leaders. We share in a Covenant Meal with Challah and grape juice distributed to all who wish to participate. We believe that when we do this, we not only do so in remembrance of Yeshua's sacrifice for us, but that we are brought closer (in common union) to God and to each other. We always have a fellowship meal (Oneg) following the service.
We celebrate the Feasts of the Lord: Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (Weeks), Yom T'ruah (Rosh HaShannah), Yom Kippur, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). We have a heart for the land, the people, the Scriptures and the God of Israel.
We believe in the power of effective prayer, and we always provide the opportunity for individual and corporate prayer and intercession.
Our hope is that as God leads and provides, and as we continue to seek His will individually and as a community, He will provide the resources, both spiritually, and physically, for us to grow in depth, breadth, and impact for the Kingdom in these latter and most critical of days.
