I’ve been away from Blogging since Christmas. Life has been busy in trying to grow a new church and disciple the people that God has given to my care. Here’s a short testimonial from John and Alex on how God is changing their lives through The Exchange Community.
Our new church, The Exchange Community is starting its weekly gatherings this Sunday, September 8th, at 9am. We’ll be meeting at The Creative Edge, at 160 N Enterprise Ln, Jackson, Mo 63755. I think we are going to cook a brunch afterwards for anyone who would like to stick around. More will come as we solidify plans for the meal.
- What is the common perception of the church today?
- What do you see that’s wrong with the church?
- What is good about the church?
- What do you think the church should be like?
Our new church, The Exchange Community, has been meeting monthly through the summer. We’ve had three worship gatherings. We’ve had many people, who haven’t been to church in a long time, come and check us out. We are now taking that next step of faith by starting a weekly worship gathering on September 8th at the Creative Edge.
Through the summer we talked about the three values of a GCM Collective church:
What is The Gospel?
The Mission of God.
Unfortunately, we had audio problems and so we don’t have a video for our messages on the Gospel and Mission.
We will talk on September 8th on Why a New Church? We will talk about why in, of all places, South East Missouri, do we need a new church? You’ll get an understanding of the come-as-you are culture that we’re trying to create. You’ll see what makes this new church community distinct amongst the other churches in our communities. You’ll also see why this new type of church is needed.
Please pray for us as we start this new church to reach many more people with the love and message of Jesus Christ.
