Ever show up late for a movie and realize that the first 10 minutes set the stage for the entire plot? Or have you ever gotten lost en route to a great party, only to spend most of the night trying to catch up on the conversations that a faulty GPS caused you to miss? In many ways, this is what it can feel like for a person to enter a new church community. 

Preface was created because we value the new person at Watershed - it exists so that someone new has an opportunity to take part and weigh in on vital conversations our community has been having and to help a person develop a greater taste of the culture and ethos of Watershed. We are convinced that people begin to form a clearer picture of how they fit into community when they get to know others, ask questions and engage meaningful conversations about life, relationships, faith and who we are as the church. If you find yourself intrigued by the possibilities, Preface could be the Bloc for you! The centerpiece of discussion is the book Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell.

Our final round of Preface for 2019 will begin in October:

hear what people have to say about their EXPERIENCE in Preface...

I absolutely loved this course and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had at a church. It felt very real and authentic. It also helped my marriage because religion has always been a pain point between my wife and I. Preface helped clairify to each other where we were in our spiritual path. I’d do the course again in a heartbeat!
Can’t say enough... well done, well planned, great flow that made mixing and mingling with different groups each week really natural and safe. Learned a TON and I feel ready to jump into Watershed!
Matt’s facilitation style was so beneficial. He kept control while also drawing some deep things out of people. No one dominated talking... he was able to create a safe and open space so everyone was giving input.
