iN A.M. Launch | Community Life

By January 25, 2014Archive

iN AM Launch #TitleWe are staggered. Last Sunday saw the launch of the new iNVERSION A.M. 11:00 service, and it was a buzz of community excitement and a gospel-gazing good time. We knew we were outgrowing our current evening service venue, but, frankly, we weren’t expecting over 300 people to fill the morning up.  And then there were the 50+ kids having a blast in our BEGiNNiNGS children’s ministry! On top of all the A.M. goodness there was the vibrancy of the evening service too! We are still processing the blessings of all that happened.

It was a great “soft” launch, so a big thank you to all who were involved. The Grand Opening of iN 2014 is just a few days away, and we hope you and your friends join us. While we make our last minute preps (we are so excited for what is coming that it is hard to see straight!), take a peek of the excitement and vibrancy of last Sunday!  A big thanks to Jaime Lauren Photography for these images!

iN AM Launch #7

“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others…not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.”
                                                                                                                         ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

iN AM Launch #1

“How can we say that the Church wishes to bring us back into the Dark Ages? The Church was the only thing that ever brought us out of them.”  
                                                                                                                         ~G.K. Chesterton

iN AM Launch #9

“Saints cannot exist without a community, as they require, like all of us, nurturance to be a people who, while often unfaithful, preserve the habits necessary to learn the story of God.” 
                                                                                                                             ~Stanley Hauerwas
