Nobody Fits. Everyone Belongs.


Deep Ellum has historically been a gathering place for people on the margins. At LIDE, we strive to create a safe environment for everyone, an invitation into something none of us can enjoy alone: Community. We hope within our walls you will experience a deep sense of connection with others. And though our energetic core is a community of faith, you don’t have to share our faith to join us. Someone once said of LIDE, “Nobody fits, but everyone belongs,” and we couldn’t agree more.

... a community.

The Gathering is where our faith community comes together for prayer and worship. Everyone is welcome! In fact, our mantra is: We are not a church in a community, but a church for a community. The Gathering happens every Sunday at 11am in the main venue of LIDE. Come early and connect over coffee and complimentary refreshments in the Umbrella Gallery.
