Somewhat like a birth story, it is going to take me a few days to really get it all into writing about how yesterday went. But in a word... it was an INCREDIBLE day! To see people pouring into the place and the auditorium filled to capacity was certainly something to celebrate. So I promise a longer post later, but to tie you over, here are the quick facts:
- 285 people total... a stark contrast of our very first launch meeting which resulted in FOUR people showing up!
- 42 of those people were in our kids' services (5th grade and under)
- At least 9 people committed their lives to Christ
- Many many connection cards filled out with names of people who are excited and want to get involved!
Man it was a great day! Although it's not up yet, Josh's sermon will be posted online soon, so when it goes live I will let you know. I'd like to say the hard part is over, but now we have to make sure they want to come back! It's really just the beginning...
