Mountainside Community Church--A Beautiful Endeavor!

 Sunday morning we express our faith, enter into community, explore the truth and experience God--all in movie theater!

This is a beautiful endeavor!  We love the wonderful people that Mountainside Community Church is allowing us to know.  They are really, really wonderful and so grateful for this gathering.  We are small, but growing every week as we meet new people.

So- here is the reality.  We are absolutely not strong enough in any way to carry the weight of this baby Church here in Boone, but it matters so much to the folks that are finding the life of Jesus and the love of His body through this Church.  We COULD NOT DO THIS with out the amazing, faithful, loving support of so many churches in Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee pooling their funds through networks like WayPoint, and Church Partners of the Smokies as well as those giving directly.  Really- this could not work at all without the great love and support of a whole bunch of people we will likely never meet.  But we know they are praying and giving financially- and there have been several who have driven up the mountain each week to serve with us.  It has been so humbling and deeply moving to see THE BODY OF CHRIST in action.

There is an excitement over this newness- this endeavor- this mission- this ‘something that came from nothing’…IT IS A MIRACLE, and we all know it. We are very much like the family who gather around a new born baby and ooh and ah at the infant- expressing thankfulness at the safe delivery and wondering with great hope of all this new one will grow to become!

Our faith is strong- and our work is cut out for us as there are many many more people to reach out to- just like we have been doing for the last year.  I am excited to walk into this spring and summer flanked with 75+ Boonies, because last spring we arrived with just our family of 7.  God has already multiplied us 10 times in one year.  Wonder what He will do with another 12 months….
