Well it's been almost a month since I blogged about the church plant. Since then we have visited several church plants, and starting meeting on Sunday mornings! Wow.
So we visited three different church plants during our "Sunday's off" between SGBC and the start of Redeemer. It was very encouraging and helpful to see what others have done, and hear their encouragements to us for the journey. These are the people who have been there and know the battle ahead, so to get wisdom from them was very sweet.
On Oct 12th we met for the first time on a Sunday morning at Bristow Elementary. It just so happened that Bro and Haven decided to have Baby Eden on the 11th (she was due a day after me, so almost 4 weeks early!), so plans changed quite a bit for the 12th! Ha! I will do another post on precious Eden, but know that her and momma are both fabulous and I tell Haven daily I am mad that she isn't pregnant anymore and I am! Haha.
So we decided to just do a very scaled down version for our first Sunday. Jennifer led worship by herself, and it was sweet and simple. It was a humbling morning I think. There were just a few of us, and it was our first time in the school. It felt perfect to me. God just preparing us for what He wants to do in this area, and Him reminding us that it won't be by our plans or big show that hearts and lives will be changed. It will be by His doing alone. It was a great lesson at the perfect time.
So the next week we were all pumped and ready to go! We had a few visitors and wonderful worship and a great message. It was refreshing and exciting.
Now we are trying to spread the word. Our core group will be going out and passing out info this weekend, and we are praying for ways to reach the community around us.
Will you pray with us?
