We had a great first night for our Initial Interest Meeting this past Sunday. We had 63 people attend and it is tremendous to have such a strong number, yet it is not just the number of people that gets me excited, but the ‘who’ of people who showed up. Kathleen and I were pumped by the kind of leaders that showed up and also the kind of the kind of mix of people anybody would want to be around.
There were a lot of people who couldn’t make it and if that is you, I am attaching a script of the text of the Interest Meeting Message Kathleen and I shared as far as why we believe in church planting, why we feel called to church planting and why we believe that God is ready to do something amazing in West Chester. It isn’t exactly what we said, it is just the rough text of what we planned to say..:)
