Where are we going?
As many of you know, there are some changes that are coming down the pike for Project Church. The Vision of Project is the same as it has always been. Love God, Love People, Live Free. For those of you that were at church last sunday you have a taste of the coming change.
For those not there let me describe what went down. We started with a opening worship song followed by a message (In this case it was some Q&A from the congregation). After that the congregation was dismissed into smaller groups who met in the Elks for small group worship in a more intimate setting. It is a time for people to be able to pray and sing and have dialogue in a small group.
The change that is coming is this:
Starting in September, one Sunday a month, we are going to have small group worship in the Elks that will follow the style described above. More intimate praise and worship time on sunday morning. Time for Dialogue and asking for prayer and sharing how God has been moving in our lives. The other Sundays are going to be the exact same as the have been. We are just changing one Sunday a month. This will last until the end of November and then in December we will worship together for the duration of the month. At this point we will reassess and see if we’ll take the next move.
This can be a scary proposition. Change and movement is uncomfortable.
I think it is analogous to my climb at Devil’s Tower trip this last Tuesday… My friend Chris and I had looked into the route. We made a plan. We knew where we wanted to go. We knew the gear we needed. We knew the tempo we needed to keep.
