This past weekend at Trinity Church was momentous in the history of our church. This Palm Sunday saw the launch of the Beyond Project. We are launching out into a new building project, but it’s more than that. It’s not about the buildings, the improvements, or a chance to have more space. It’s about the fulfilling the vision of our church to reach the next generations. We’ve labeled it the Beyond Project, out of Deuteronomy 30:11, “Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or BEYOND your reach.”
The plans have been in the works for well over 3 years, and this weekend the ‘cat was let out of the bag’ (so to speak) and it was revealed to our church body. It was a massive effort to get the word out to our church body, with packets of information distributed to over 4,500 families that attend our church. Most packets were handed out to families that attended our weekend services, but that was not all. Later in the day over 200 people took the remaining Beyond packets into the community, and hand delivered them to those families that were not in attendance. It was a promotional blitz of epic proportions!
There was a write-up in the local paper on Monday morning, (albiet not very accurate in it’s reporting…) and the church and families are a buzz with anticipation of how this is going to all roll out of the next few weeks, into the next few years. As the Children’s Pastor, I’m most excited that the drive behind this entire project is to create more space, and better environments for our children and families. It’s going to be awesome!
