I Can’t Wait to Get There!
I often talk about what a great church we have. Last fall, we laid out a plan to make it even better. We talked specifically about creating “I can’t wait to get there” Sunday morning experiences that people can’t wait to attend. We want to worship, learn and serve together in ways that are life-changing – every Sunday.
Work teams, staff and leaders of our church have been addressing the logistics. And while we still have some details to work out, we are ready to make this dream a reality. Our new worship schedule will allow for a dedicated time of learning on Sunday mornings that does not conflict with worship times. During that hour, we’ll host a new format for Kids Sunday School that is so awesome we’re not even calling it Sunday School, but “Ingomar Kids Prime Time.” If you’re a grown-up, we’ve got you covered, as well, with a new array of small group learning for wherever you are in your faith and life journey!
Starting September 10, 2017 our Sunday mornings will look like this:
8:30 am Traditional Worship in the Sanctuary
9:45 – 10:45 am Small group learning and connecting time for all ages including Ingomar Kids Prime Time
11:00 am Contemporary Worship in Fellowship Hall
11:00 am Traditional Worship in the Sanctuary
I am confident these changes we are making will help us to reach new people with the good news of Jesus. I am confident they will help us all to grow deeper in our relationships with Christ. And I am confident that God will continue to bless us as we learn to put Jesus first, others second and ourselves third.
With hope and confidence in the future of our church,
Pastor David Streets
