Neighborhood Church

We're less than one week from our first service. Pause...that's kind of hard to believe. This has been a dream for a long time, and it's finally here. Exciting, yet very scary. There are still a few things that need to get done, but all in all, I think we're ready.

It's easy to be overcome by stress during times like this, but every time that starts to happen, I'm reminded that this is Jesus' thing, not mine. He said that He would build His Church. He's the One who draws people to Himself. He's opened and closed all of the doors that needed to be opened and closed. He will grow this church the way He wants to grow it.

So what's our role? Just to trust and obey. It's really that simple. Oh, and not to freak out over every little detail. That comes back to being a child, which is something else that's easy to forget.
