A Visit to Blue Ridge

Today, six members of the PCC staff went on a field trip to Blue Ridge Community Church in Lynchburg. We went a few years ago, right after Blue Ridge had moved from their temporary home in a school to their their new, 50,000+ sq ft facility. When we toured their building then, our own building was a mere dream...a concept. We went back today because we are now counting the days to moving into our own building. As you can imagine, today's tour and conversation had an entirely new meaning and focus.

I learned a lot today. I think our staff did, too. We gained some practical knowledge that will help us be better prepared and we saw some little 'tricks' that will cost almost nothing but will make us a lot more effective. The staff of Blue Ridge rolled out the red carpet for us, as they did a few years ago. What great hospitality. As they prayed for us after we had taken 2 hours of their time, I was again reminded that we are all on the same team.

We have done our homework on this facility. I sleep easy knowing that we've done all we can to prepare for our move. The building won't be perfect, but I don't know how we could be more 'ready'. We'll learn even more after we move in sometime next month. But we're ready now. And we're very excited!
