First Steps

Hey, it has been way too long since I've last blogged! Things have been very busy and a lot is happening as we're headed toward our first preview service June 15. Let me just give you a quick update.

- we're excited to add several new people to the team
- has attracted some great media and buzz (several local and even large papers have called for stories)
- we'll be deciding on and announcing the church's name once voting ends May 31!
- our team has been getting more and more prepared for our preview services and launch
- AvaRae took her first steps (sorry, just had to throw that in there... and yes, of course I'm bragging!)(Hey, it's related to church planting. As a church plant we're taking some of our first steps.)

Prayer Requests:
- continued team unity and growth
- funding, we still have significant finanacial needs
- strategic partnerships
- outreach events
- June 15 preview service
- pray for Matt & Katie Woodburn to be able to move up and join us soon (pray for the sale of their house and a great job for Katie)

This is a crazy adventure! Things are tough but good. God is always faithful and has done so much even just in me not to mention all the others involved in this. We are excited to make His name great and help people find, pursue, and live a life-changing relationship with Christ! I'll keep you posted.
