Our Story

At The Porch, everyone’s invited. That is, if you’re in your 20s or 30s. No matter where you’re at in your faith journey or what your story is, we believe that God has something for you. If you're in Dallas, come and see The Porch on Tuesday nights— 7PM at Watermark Community Church.

The Porch is a place of community and authenticity.

Every Tuesday, thousands gather in Dallas and even more at our livestream locations around the country. Lives are changing, friendships are forming, and many are finding hope they never had before. Through messages, music, and relationships with other young adults, our goal is to walk alongside you through the highs and lows of adulting. From talks about dating, relationships, anxiety and more, we are learning what it looks like to live a life full of purpose.

Frequently asked questions

1. Who is this Watermark you speak of? Uparrow

Well, we were almost called Lonestar, but that's another story for another day. Anyways, technically, you should be asking who The Porch is... Watermark Community Church is the larger church that we exist within. The Porch is merely a front door to connecting with the big church.

2. Okay fine, then who is The Porch? Uparrow

A gathering of young adults in Dallas, Texas who want to connect with God and be a part of what He is doing in our city and around the world. We believe that knowing God and being known by others is the most important thing we could do in our lifetime. We believe that we, as the Church, are the hope of the world. We have tasted and seen that the Lord is good, better than anything else we've known. We aim to see twenty and thirty-somethings come to know God's love, be transformed by His Spirit, and impact this generation eternally through the church. Come and see. We'd love to meet you!

3. So, The Porch isn't a church? Uparrow

No, we are just a bunch of people pursuing and learning about Christ together.

4. Do I have to be a member at Watermark to serve at The Porch? Uparrow

Yes. We place a high value on being known, in community, and pursuing God with our church family. You can however start the process with our 10 week volunteer training while you are completing membership requirements.

5. I'm not a member of Watermark, but I want to be... now what? Uparrow
