We were so excited to see even more new people at the final meeting at the Pearl Community Room! At the meeting we laid out the background and vision for The Exchange. We walked through 5 reasons we are starting a new church and 5 reasons we are not starting a new church. (To read those reasons click here.) Finally, we spent time looking at the foundational passage for The Exchange - 2 Corinthians 5:14-21. We reviewed the verses we have talked through from the last few months discussing how the love of Christ compels us to go, to serve as the church we must no longer live for ourselves, and to take the perspective of Christ we must no longer view anyone from a worldly point of view.
Although this was the last interest meeting, we have some BIG plans for the late spring and summer as we prepare for launch day on Sunday, August 12th. Over the next few months we will continue with LIFEgroups, host teacher appreciation breakfasts, take part in Pearl Day, host a sports camp for kids, host a family day at the park, and do lots and lots of planning! The schedule is jam packed and we are incredibly excited about all that God is doing through The Exchange!
