An update from College Station pastor Ben Hailey:
Where we are:
- At least 100 people attended our Nov. 18 tailgate party at Central Park! This event was an outreach and many of our people invited friends from outside the church.
- Our group is continuing to get to know each other through both our Sunday School class and our Sunday night gathering times.
- We plan and pursue vision with a dedicated Advisory Team and a Session Commission.
- We are actively pursuing names of people we receive who are interested. Please give Ben names of people that he can contact!
- We have about 20 committed family units.
- Our December 3 Lessons and Carols service was very encouraging.
- On December 17, our Advisory Team attended Grace and Peace Presbyterian in Austin to observe worship logistics, children’s ministry, and assimilation practices.
Where we’re going:
- Weekly evening gatherings will begin January 7, consisting of teaching time and team time.
- January 28 – First “preview” worship service.
- February 11 – Second “preview” worship service.
- February 25 – Worship Launch
- We continue to meet as a congregation during the Sunday School hour at WPC Bryan, focusing on worship elements and church culture discussions.
- We are continuing to raise support.
- DETAILS. There are a lot of details. There are a lot of things that needs to be executed for Launch, and a lot of things we want to do. Pray that we can organize everything and do what we need to do.
- Pray for our group to be energized by the needs of College Station and be refreshed by one another.
- Pray that the Lord would give us wisdom and that most of all He would be glorified in everything we do.
