“Just to know You and to make You known,
we lift Your name on high…”
–Casting Crowns “Thrive”
If you’ve visited our church recently, you know that firstChristian is continuing to grow, and are in fact are bumping against overcrowding. We’ve been seeing this coming for a couple of years now, but there’s no avoiding it any longer. It’s time for us to make room to Thrive.
Thrive First Sunday 7.30.17
What is Thrive?
In order to continue to Thrive, we are adding to our current building. This will allow us to meet three vital needs.
The space for children and youth will more than double.
If we are to welcome the families that God is bringing us, we have to make room for children, the next generation, and generations to come. This will be done through repurposing our current worship space.
Our connecting space will more than triple.
As we grow larger, we need to provide space for relationship Velcro, the small and significant conversations that help us connect. Our current lobby and hallway to the worship space makes it difficult to stop to visit.
Our new worship space added to the south will be better designed for worship.
Expressing love to God through song and worship, hearing from God’s word and responding, and joining together to celebrate God’s presence are at the heart of who we are.
