Tonight was one of those nights when I walked away from an event with friends and family with heart soaring. Church planting is full of those draining, challenging, worrisome, even scary moments, but tonight was one of those that was all-blessing.
Circle Church of Christ, the church that reached out to us and introduced us to Jesus, has been supporting our church financially and prayerfully since its beginning stages. Tonight they threw us a "baby church shower" in preparation for our launch. It was complete with a meal, presents, and a wonderful atmosphere of expectation and support. I came away feeling deeply loved and appreciated and I was glad our whole team could be there to share in the relationships we have enjoyed with the people that make up Circle.
May God continue to bless us with strong relationships with healthy churches and loving people as we seek to work with Him in south Salem!
