For two years Ben and I have hoped and prayed. We have held on and dug in. Our bank account has looked a littler leaner and our faith has grown a little stronger.
We have talked and cried and laughed and relished and delighted and mourned and kept going.
New faces have come alongside us and others have slipped away.
And still, in our hearts, we're convinced of what is to come.
January 30th, 2011 represents the culmination of all these things as Columbia Church officially opens her doors at 1215 Calhoun Street, Columbia, SC.
No sales pitch here. Just an honest-to-goodness invitation to come experience something new. We have no preconceived notion about who will walk in the door. But I want you to come celebrate this amazing occasion with me.
Our mission is simple: to introduce people to our Heavenly Father and to lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We've worked really hard to create a church where you might actually connect with God and with other people in a way that isn't weird or difficult. Just honest and engaging.
