Jesus said GO…

About 5 years ago we ran into a problem that most churches would love to have – not enough parking for our Sunday morning attendance. We asked people to park on the lawn and then we removed our old pews and put in chairs to add seating to the auditorium. At each of these minor changes we saw an increase in attendance. We were confident we were a good church, faithful to God’s Word and He was blessing us with growth. We also knew that the changes we were making were only temporary solutions, we needed to do something more drastics. We needed to do something BIGGER!
 
After years of prayer, study, research and deliberation we became convinced that the BIG thing God wanted for our church was to get smaller!
 
What?
 
Well we were a small church. We’ve been a small church for the last 50+ years and we learned that in order to become a big church we would have to change a lot of the things that we thought made us a good small church.
 
So instead of trying to get bigger. We are going to try to be a small church that starts other small churches all around the region. Rather than asking people to come to us – we want to be people who really go into the world.
 
Our first daughter church plans on meeting regularly in April 2015
