Why In The World We Would Want To Start A New Church

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?

New Church In South East Missouri

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:

  1. What is The Gospel?
  2. 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.

True Community

The Exchange Community had its second monthly gathering. The first service we talked about the Gospel. In this gathering we talked about True Community.

Our third and final monthly gathering will be August 28th at the Creative Edge.  Then we’ll start weekly gatherings starting the 8th of September.  Please pray that God would continue to grow his church and lead us in discipling those we reach.

How Should We Dress When We Go To The Exchange?

How Should I dress

How Should You Dress at the Exchange?  Any way you want!  When Jesus was on earth he never made people dress in their best robes and sandals before he’d talk to them.  He never told them to get a haircut, to shave, or to take a bath before he’d love them.  He never told them to take of their hats, take out their piercings, or cover up their tattoos before coming into his presence.  In the Bible we see Jesus inviting people to come as they are no matter what they looked like, not matter what they’ve done, no matter how messed up their life was at that time.

If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable in a Church but want to know Jesus, this community is for you.  The Exchange Community is a Church for people who normally would never walk into church.  We’re not about religion.  We’re about Jesus, knowing him, loving Him, and Loving others.  Come to the Exchange where People are Loved, Lives are Changed and God is in our Midst.
