Gather small website-01.png

Gathering together is central to who we are and how we live missionally to get as many people as possible to hear, see and follow Jesus.  Arcade Church believes that when people gather in life-giving communities that point to Christ, they grow in big ways -- both in their love for Jesus and for one another. 

Our “gather” model is based on the early church community described in Acts 2, who continually studied the word of God; enjoyed life together; served others sacrificially; and devoted themselves to prayer.  Acts 2:43 says that in these gatherings “awe came upon every soul” -- a growing wonder for the Lord. 

Our hope is that Sacramento experiences this growing wonder for the Lord as more and more groups gather at Arcade Church.  Whether you are meeting with others on campus or in neighborhoods throughout Sacramento, we want to help you find a group of people you enjoy spending time with, and that can walk alongside you.  You’ll grow in your faith. Be encouraged by others. And build genuine, lasting friendships that will impact you and the community around you.

Where are you gathering? Arcade Church offers four different ways to gather in groups:

why we gather-02c-06.png




Gather Groups are neighborhood-based groups of 3+ people that meet off-campus, in homes, coffeehouses and other locations of your choice. The goal with Gather Groups is that anyone, including you, can start one. Here is how to do it:

  1. Sign up to host a group, get our easy to use resources.

  2. Invite a few people you know, maybe some you don’t and invite them to gather.

  3. Hold your first meeting

As a Gather Group host, you will receive resources from us weekly during the Groups season that includes Curriculum for our fall series and other great things to help you host your group well.

We provide resources for you to start anytime you want or you can join us during the fall, spring, and summer seasons.
