The truth is that there is not enough space in the world to write down all I learned at LifeChurch.tv Albany. The experience was overwhelming and my wife and I returned to Brooklyn charged and energized. We're looking forward to returning this summer with some members of the launch team to learn even more!
BUILD THE EXPERIENCE FOR THE UN-CHURCHED
At LifeChurch Albany, everything they do regarding the worship experience revolves around reaching the un-churched person. This means very intentionally creating an atmosphere where that person can feel comfortable, accepted and loved. This permits removal of distractions and allows room for people to respond to the gospel.
Excellence is key. Why? Because from the songs sung, to the message preached, everything is done to our God and he deserves the very best of our ability. God will honor excellence.
KIDS, KIDS, KIDS
The environment they create for children is so exciting that kids beg their parents to return the following week. But it's not just a baby-sitting service. Kids have their own worship, Bible study and small group time. We want to implement this excellence in kids ministry at Swerve Church as well.
In fact, perhaps this is an area of ministry you feel passionate about. Maybe you'd like to get involved and help us build an exciting environment for children to attend. It all starts with joining the Launch Team. Sign-up, we'd love to get to know you have you as a part of the team that is leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ!
Swerve Church is a new Church Plant coming to the Bushwick / Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Our mission is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. We're committed to the capital "C" church because we know we can do infinitely more together than apart. We will do anything short of sin to reach people far from God because to reach people that no one is reaching, we need to do things that no one is doing. We are a part of NetworkChurches.tv. We hope to launch in April of 2014.
I'm encouraged by the response of many who want to come on board and join the Launch Team. I hope that you the reader would prayerfully consider it as well!
For those of you that may not know already, the launch team is a group of people that have as a goal seeing the vision of Swerve Church become a reality. We'll be meeting up several times a month to discuss the progress of the church plant and to discuss strategies on how to get the word out.
Besides that however, these get-togethers will serve as a fun time to get to know other launch team members. It's also a time to encourage and pray for each other. I will also be sharing the vision of Swerve Church.
If you're not interested in joining the launch team, that ok! But maybe you can help us out by getting the word out to someone else! Do you know anyone that may be interested in this exciting new church coming to Brooklyn? Please point them to the SwerveChurch.com website!
If you are interested, or even if you would just like some more info, I'd love to get together with you and discuss if over some coffee. SwerveChurch.com/join-the-launch-team
