There was a long table for people to sign up for growth groups. After the service, as I was glancing over the table, a sweet couple connected with me and stressed the value of growth groups for them. I stressed the importance of our life group and how that is one of the most difficult things for us to leave in TN!
Worship was electric! People were engaged and alive. There was even a keytar.
The message was very real, Biblically grounded, and spoke directly to our hearts.
We ended up talking with some of the staff for quite a while afterwards. Maggie won the Pastor's heart, as he has background in special ed and has a soft spot in that arena.
AND...they are in the preparation phase for launching another site and have been praying for God to provide the staff individuals for that site.
Needless to say, we'll be in touch with them. Pretty impressive, eh?!?
