It finally feels like we’re finding our rhythm with weekly Sunday gatherings. Like every portable church plant, part of the challenge to the weekly plan is finding people willing to serve early on Sunday mornings and help load-in and set-up. Even with a sparse crew, things are getting done and we’re thankful for this dedicated team.
We’re also wanting to stay very intentional about creating a unique Worship Experience every Sunday. It’s easy to default into an expected flow and order of things. On one hand it is nice to have a basic plan to launch from, but we definitely want to keep finding new ways to connect with people and create meaningful moments where people can experience the love of God.
The entrepreneurial part of me is absolutely loving the discovery of a new church culture along with the opportunity to help define the worship expression we have as a group.
Our numbers were down some this week. There were 45 people in the main venue and 16 in the Kids Station. There are still a solid percentage of first time visitors coming each week. We have a developing core of regular attenders, but at this point in our journey it’s not consistent from week to week.
Musically we had a great week. The band was incredibly solid and that helps create a distraction-free Worship Experience that is a joy to lead.
I’m very thankful for a growing community of creative people who are helping each week as we meet to worship Jesus and talk about God’s love with the people who are coming out to The Station Church.
