Our Story

Our Story

Real Life began as a dream of sister churches in the East Valley of the Phoenix Metro area. Over several months meetings were held inviting people to be a part of this new adventure to create a community of Christ followers who wanted to “be” the church rather than just “go” to church.  So from the beginning our focus has not been the Sunday morning gatherings alone, but equally on our relationships with one another and our impact for good on our community and world.

Our first Life Groups (mid week get-togethers in homes) began in June of 2007. It was four months later in October of 2007 that we held our first Sunday services all together meeting at Williams Field High School in Gilbert, AZ. At the same time we kicked off our Real Life Kidz program for children birth through 5th grade with classes that meet during our two Sunday morning services.

We are not striving to be the largest church but instead to be a church with a large heart. Our story is really about growing as family together to be followers of Jesus who lift Him up in the world and make the most impact for Him that we can. We are seeking ways every day to join where God is already working in our community and our world.

You will not find any perfect people here. Just real people who are finding out about the scandalous grace of Jesus Christ and trying to tell others as well. In fact, our story is really His Story! And we hope you will join with us to make His Story known to all the world!
