We are moving. Well, we aren’t just moving locations – we are on the move with Jesus. God has answered our prayer for a new place to worship Him on Sunday mornings. Praise the Lord! But we have a bigger prayer – to live out the mission He has given us – to reach this area with Jesus. And we are praying that as we move we can live out this mission even more.
On March 8th we will have our worship service at 10am at Enochs – our last Sunday at Enochs. We will take some time to pray and thank God for the lives that were changed during our time in this school’s cafeteria/auditorium. Almost 1000 people have come to a church service and been touched by God at Covenant Grove in the last 5 years. God has done great things in our midst. We will also pack up everything and move to our new storage. We will have food – are you surprised? We will be putting signs up this week letting people know of our new location at Orchard Elementary.
On March 14th we will gather on Saturday night at 5:30pm, again with food, and again with prayer for the mission to come alive in this new location. We will run through Sunday morning and be ready to focus on Christ and reaching people with Him. This will be a fun night and everyone – from any church or no church – is invited!
On March 15 we will have our first worship service at Orchard Elementary (1800 Wisdom Way, near Merle and Oakdale). Service will start at 10am. We will be focused on Jesus, and on reaching out and inviting others to experience His hope and joy. We want to be a blessing to our new neighborhood. We are following Jesus and living out His mission with Him.
These are amazing days! It is so unsettling but faith growing to be in a church plant. We don’t just want to move – we want to be on the move and living out the mission with Jesus. Pray with me! May this move see the mission lived even more than we could possibly imagine!!
