It is with great excitement, after much anticipation and prayer, that I inform y’all that we’ve officially found our home for our Sunday Gatherings (although many of you have already seen the posts via Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook). I was able to tour the school this past week and was more impressed than I had originally assumed. The auditorium was a lot cleaner, a lot bigger, and a lot more nicer than I thought. The theater-type seating and natural uplighting add a warm feel to the overall experience. And, to top it all off, the “wing” where our children’s ministry will meet is an easy walking distance behind the main stage of the auditorium.
It’s all coming together and the vision the Lord gave me a few years back is slowly unfolding, as it already has been.
We began our church planting journey with Care, then created space for Discipleship to happen through our first Missional Community. And, now, we’re on the verge of launching our Sunday Gatherings. There’s definitely a lot more work to be done for The Branch and building pockets of loving community centered around learning about Jesus will be a life long venture.
This next step in the life of our little church plant simply makes our experience that much more exciting.
So…with that said…consider this your official invitation to party with us April 27th at 1030 a.m. I’d love for you to join us as we celebrate God and Community. Our Sunday Gatherings will be at Buffum Total Learning Center in the beautifully diverse city of Long Beach.
See you there!!!
