Planting in the middle of winter
Church planting! Didn't I tell you that God was doing awesome things? We just went to the church board meeting and they approved our church plant application. So now its needs to go through two committees at the conference level and then get approved in church business meeting and we have all the backing of the home church. Lots of hoops but so worth jumping through.
There was some discussion but mainly about technicalities. The church board was resoundingly supportive of a plant church. If things go smoothly we should be starting our first service February or so. It just feels good to be approved of.
A call went out to church members asking for more core group members. Currently there are 6 of us and we are looking for a few more to take part in these planning stages. So keep praying!
