How about an update on Epic Church?!?! So much is happening - here are some of the highlights.
- The W Hotel - Along with our team, many of you and others around the country prayed for a long time that we would find the perfect meeting space for Sunday mornings. We believe that we have found that space at The W Hotel. This venue allows us a great worship space and also a separate room for our Children's ministry which is important to us. We found great favor with Mark, the sales manager, and are looking forward to our first service there on October 10, 2010. What an answer to prayer!!!
- Sundays - We start monthly preview services in October and weekly services in February. Until then, our team is visiting different churches in the city and the Bay Area in the mornings. This is a great chance for us to worship with and learn from other churches. In the evenings we gather as a team at the Pilgreen house. Together we get to share a meal, sing, pray and are encouraged. Ben Pilgreen also uses this time to share the vision of Epic Church.
- Decisions and Process - We are the busiest we have been since moving here but are making great progress and having fun along the way. With our first preview service less than 3 months away we are in the process of a ton of things. We are developing marketing strategies, buying equipment, thinking through our preview services, meeting people, etc.
So a couple of people have asked this question - "If you don't have an office and there are no weekly services yet, what does a typical work day look like for you?" I ran out of time (it's 10:20pm right now and I'm old) so I am going to answer that question in a Part 2 post tomorrow. Get excited - it involves mission teams, service organizations, children's ministry and checking the mail!
Thank you for loving us through this journey -
