In order to go anywhere new you first have leave where you were at… We’ve experienced a lot of that in the last week. Jeff and Chrissy who run actionkidz upstairs had their last week at Lancaster Vineyard Sunday. They left behind friends and a great church to take on the challenge of turning an upstairs disco into a great environment to tell kids about Jesus every week. We truly couldn’t have launched actionchurch without having someone with a vision for “actionkidz”. Thanks Lancaster Vineyard…we owe you!
Michele, Reagan, and I “left” LCBC on Sunday as well. We LOVED the time we spent there. Quite frankly…if I thought church was about “me” and “my needs” and “getting fed” (I don’t-just wait ’til week two of the Re-th(ink) series) I would stay at LCBC forever and be the happiest cat in the world. We will really miss that church! It has truly been the best experience I have had attending a church ever.
So why leave places you love…to a place you don’t know…with no “guarantees”… because something even better is ahead…
