Church

So many people love Jesus and serve Him in amazing ways!  That is confirmed, again and again, both as we as we watch God grow the Community Resource Network and as we take advantage of this new season of ministry to visit wonderful churches in this community!  These past Sundays we have worshiped at The Gathering Place in Sanford, Summit Church in Orlando, Maitland Presbyterian, and Church Together in Casselberry.  Each weekend, a friendly congregation welcomed us and wonderful teaching inspired us!  

Additionally, and certainly equally important for the future of God’s church, networks of micro-churches are growing strong! Last weekend, we were so encouraged by time spent with leaders of microchurches that are part of the Crowded House Network. CHN, under the able leadership of Jeremy Penn, is a network of microchurches choosing to be in relationship with the ever-expanding network of networks, Slingshot, whose gifted executive director is Chad Turnbull, pictured above. Microchurches that are “high home, high mission” are thriving in Central Florida and across the nation. It’s exciting to see the church distributed in this way!

Want to know more about faith communities forming in homes, coffee shops, offices, schools, and wherever people come together? Check out Slingshot’s website. You may be surprised how much a microchurch resonates with your spirit. 

“Working within Christ’s body, the church, until we’re all moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God’s Son, fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ.” - Ephesians 4:13b (The Message)
