Here is more from my eventful weekend:
On Saturday night, my church hosted an event for house churches, organic churches and simple churches. It has been an event in the making for a couple of months and it went really well.
We rented out a movie theater in downtown Greensboro and had about 4 or 5 simple churches come out. This whole event started with a conversation about what is missing in the house church movement.
Mike and I realized that one of the key ingredients lacking in the house church movement is a place to worship freely. This is not a post against worship acoustically. But it is about being able to express oneself musically in a house church. This has always been one of those things that I have always missed when gathering in a garage with other believers.
Also another point that I have found lacking in the house church movement is a place to network together with others who are living as the church in the same way. So why not create something to fill those ideas?
The Simple Church Worship Night was thus born.
We are trying to create a place for people who are seeking to find alternative forms of church. These are the type of people who don’t necessarily fill that church should be a place where you go to listen to one person speak for an hour. They want discussion. Interaction. Networking.
The Simple Church Movement (tentatively named) is about providing a place to worship with other simple churches and a place to network with those who are living out already. I am quite excited about being involved in the planning aspect of this movement. Pray for big things.
What did you do this weekend?
