Families Within The Family

Taproot Church exists as a network of Home Gatherings.  Home Gatherings are the heartbeat of this church and where the bulk of our growth happens. These are smaller families within the greater family of Taproot Church gathering weekly in homes to connect in community as a springboard to sharing their lives together. Each Home Gathering has its own unique rhythm and feel, but all are aimed at living in light of the gospel and living out the fruit of the gospel. This is where real life happens, real community happens, and real mission is fulfilled to the glory of Jesus Christ.

To find a Home Gathering in your neighborhood, stop by the Connect Table at the Sunday Gathering, or find one to visit on the map.  We currently have Home Gatherings in the Burien, Des Moines, Kent, Normandy Park, Renton, and West Seattle neighborhoods.
