The District Church East Side has a place to meet!!
We just received the go-ahead to meet at Miner Elementary School, which is such an answer to prayer in so many ways, not only because of its location (right in the area where we were hoping to meet) but also because of the partnership of Principal Bunch. Mrs. Bunch, whom I’ve gotten to know a little bit over the last month, is an amazing woman of character and vision, with a heart for the kids, for their parents, and for the renewal of the neighborhood–I don’t think we could’ve come up with a more ideal partner if we’d tried! So thank God for that.
The plan is for us to have a preview service in April (21st) and one in May (19th), and then to launch weekly services (to complement the two services in Columbia Heights) beginning June–less than two months away! Suffice it to say, there’s much to be done in the coming weeks.
- for me as I have my cardiologist appointment tomorrow and lead a couple of workshops at Missio Alliance on Friday;
- for people to find us and join what we’re doing, and for volunteers and leaders to step up in the new community;
- for all that needs to get done before we launch in June!
