We exist to awaken this generation to new life in Jesus Christ.
We’re so glad you’re here! If you’re new to Awakening, we would love to get to know you and for you to get to know us! The best way to do that is by filling out a Connection Card.
LOCATION CHANGE THIS SUNDAY
We are back in the CAFETERIA THIS SUNDAY!! Thank you all for your flexibility, see on Sunday!
It’s time for our annual backpack drive to bless Del Mar High School Students! We will be collecting backpacks until the end of August. Please bring your filled backpack on Sundays and turn it in to the Connection Cart! If you are unable to bring it on Sundays and need a way to turn your backpack in during the week, please email [email protected].
Ministry Highlight | Space Team
Space team exists to create a space for all people to encounter God at Awakening, whether it be from the street to your seat! It’s one of the most physically demanding teams we have at Awakening (it’s more walking/pushing things than lifting), but it’s also one of the most relational teams and you get to know the people you are serving alongside pretty easily! As a mobile church this team is essential and in need of volunteers.Space team exists to create a space for all people to encounter God at Awakening, whether it be from the street to your seat!

Want to know more about Baptism?
This class is for any adult or child who has never been baptized, would like to learn more about baptism, or those who were baptized as a baby and would like to make a commitment now that they are an adult. Even if you previously walked away from faith for a time and would like to recommit your life to Christ – this class is for you!
Join us in Room 29 for this one hour class. We will look through scripture, get your questions answered, and let you know what the next steps are to taking this big step in your walk of faith.
Kids Class: 9:30AM (parent must attend with their child!)

Awakening will be doing baptisms in-service on our birthday, Sunday, September 10th!

A Note from Dave
Dear Awakening Family,
It was several weeks ago that I had the opportunity to meet with dozens of our congregation for our first Listening Session, providing an open space for questions and feedback. As we were able to identify key growth edges and opportunities to address, I was also encouraged to hear how so many people celebrated the welcoming environment we have at Awakening.
It’s this welcoming and hospitable ethos that first attracted me to Awakening when attending last year. For I was not only drawn into our community from its authenticity and hunger to know God, but I also experienced hospitality. That as a stranger you crafted a welcoming space to invite my family and I in. Thank you.
The writer of Hebrews commands, “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,” (Hebrews 13:2). Therefore, may we continue this priority every time we gather the church. To never lose sight of the guests and visitors in our midst, either hungering for connection or searching for the Divine.
Whether you are on our amazing greeting team or not, you are all commissioned to join us in the sacred work of hospitality. To see the stranger. To welcome them with love. And to create a safe space for them to take their next best step on the journey God has for them.
Grateful to serve you,
P.S. If you were unable to join us for last month’s Listening Session, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or feedback at [email protected].
