Important Announcement About Our Application For Church Status


The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has
Formally Recognized Awakening Together as a Church.

Awakening Together applied for church status under IRS Code 170(b)(1)(a)(i) on December 15, 2014.

In July 2015, we received a letter from the IRS stating that a physical place of worship is required in order for an organization to be classified as a church under the IRS Code. However, this letter was not a final decision. It was a Request for Information. Awakening Together was provided with the opportunity to show that we are a church based on United States law and legal precedent.

Several people participated in creating our response to the IRS, including several members who wrote letters stating that Awakening Together is your church of choice.

On December 15, 2015, the IRS agreed with you by awarding Awakening Together with formal church status.

Thank you to everyone who helped in this process. That includes everyone who currently serves & previously served on our Member Board of Trustees and Board of Directors as well as every member who took the time to write a letter to the IRS on behalf of our application for church status. We appreciate your commitment to our church family!
