Hey guys! I can’t believe we have just completed our first school year as a church plant. It’s crazy that we launched last September! Wow!
We wanted to try something different this summer. Around half of our Sunday Gathering attenders are college students that are either gone home or are serving somewhere over the summer. Basically, they are not in Dahlonega. Because of that and vacations, we will move our Sunday night Gatherings to our house, the Dodds, at 5:30.
There are a few reasons this is exciting! First, we will be saving money as a church! With us meeting in homes, we wont have to pay rent at our current facility. This will allow us to be good stewards of what the Lord has given us. Also, at the Parks and Rec, we only had four hours on Sunday nights. When we gather at our house over the summer, you can stay as long as you want!
But most importantly, this reinforces that fact that the church is not a building or a location, it’s us! So wherever we meet, we are the church. Whatever we do throughout the week, we are the church. We don’t need a certain building or sound system to be the church. We don’t need a certain amount of people. We need the Gospel. We need community. We need mission. That’s the church. Where that takes place doesn’t really matter, does it?
So come join us! Come eat a meal and get in the Word with us! The kids can go crazy down stairs! We will also have a few weeks over the summer where will serve together and where we can play together. Like this Sunday, 5/10, we will be hanging out at Yahoola Creek Park! Just bring a picnic and come play!
We will launch our larger Gathering back again in August! So its coming back! And we are excited for that! But we are also excited about taking a break from set up/tear down every week!
The summer Calendar is attached! Take a look and come hang out with us over the summer!
