Riverside: T-Minus 5 Weeks

I am so excited!! PCC's next campus is about to launch! Here's an UPDATE and some IMPORTANT information.

Even if Riverside isn't the campus you will attend, you need to know what we're doing there!

Susan and I have visited that campus every week for three weeks and what is happening there is amazing! We're in the home stretch to launching now, and it's time for everyone to help.  We need people actively, passionately praying for the Eight Thousand people in that areas who don't go to church anywhere. That's why we're putting a campus in Fork Union.  We're after every one of those people who want to know God, but haven't looked to the church for help in their spiritual journey.  WE KNOW how to reach people like that because many of us WERE people like that.  We found new life in Jesus Christ.  Now we're doing what God called us to do - we're reaching the world on his behalf!

On AUGUST 17, we will have a MAJOR event on that campus.   (you can get directions here) We'll have a 20+ foot Rock Climbing Wall!

We'll also have several inflatable things for kids, and we'll give away hot dogs and drinks, let people tour the building, hand out brochures and answer questions.  Earlier that week, we'll mail to all the homes in a 20 minute drive radius to let them know about our launch date - September 8 - and the August 17 event.  Make plans to come, support what we're doing and get excited about it!  And by the way, we could use some help with traffic control, greeters, hot dog servers, and all kinds of things.  If you'd like to sign up to help, click here.

Here are a few pics for you from our visit yesterday.

Riverside will have an auditorium that seats 210 people, a full PCC Kids that includes PowerJam and First Steps.  And, of course, we'll have free gourmet coffee!  The campus will have the look and feel of any PCC Campus, and the Sunday morning experience will be signature PCC, with a smokin' band, killer graphics, video and lighting, and shock-n-awe in the PCC Kids area!  We think we'll fill it fast and hope to go to two services there in a hurry.

(Our Westchester Campus has the luxury of moving into bigger and bigger theaters before we have to launch a second service there.  And, in case you didn't know, Westchester is the fastest growing PCC campus, by far, right now!)

We are going to have to paint the inside of this building ourselves, so if you're willing to help give a few hours, email and let him know.

I'll give you more info in another post, but I wanted you to know that things are really heating up for our new campus that will reach people in Fluvanna and Buckingham.  I'm so excited, and I hope you are too!
