Midweek and 3rd Service?

Many have asked if we will do a midweek service or a 3rd Weekend service at the Powhatan Campus. There is a lot of conversation happening around both of those. My short answer is, 'yes. I feel like both of those will happen at some point.'

But there is a longer answer...

While moving into the building is awesome and launching Westchester is great and launching the Online campus is innovative; and while all of these things give us an exponentially increased opportunity to reach people...the truth is that these endeavors have have also really taxed us. We're tired. We need a break. At some point, I start to wonder, "are we hurting people?"

So we will do whatever God tells us to do, when He tells us to do it. That's our job. We obey without delay. But short of a clear directive from God, we're going to try to let everyone breathe a little before we turn our church upside down again.

In the meantime, we need to fill every seat, every week. Invite everyone you know. Our two physical campuses mean that PCC is convenient for people to attend regardless of where they live. Invite your co-workers, your neighbors, your friends, family, enemies and the people you do business with. No More Empty Seats!

We need to hear what you are saying as a church. You guys have burned the midnight oil for a long time and we still have a ways to go to complete the overall church building project.

I am praying that all the staff and crew who made the move-in possiable we each get the opportunity to step away for a week and just let the Lord refresh you.

I'm all for outreach, but when we reach out we have to be solid, stable and healthy to meet the needs of those whom God will send to us. A Christ Follower will alway take the time for Sabboth....when we rest we allow ourselves to unwind in the arms of our Lord as He gets us ready for the next challenge.

Thanks for your great leadership and wisdom.
