What a start!
As many of you know we were prepping to have our first public meeting to gather interest for Turning Point Church! When you go into these kinds of meetings, you never know what to expect. You just don't!
You invite. You make connections. You prep. You pray! You reserve the room, make sure there is food and get all of the right resources together. You pray! You communicate through social media. You facebook it, tweet it, craig's list it and blah, blah, blah. You lean on others. You ask others to invite others. You hope. Well, you get the drift by now.
Well, we were very excited to see 24 people show up to hear about Turning Point Church. What's even cooler is that we've had a few families say 'yes, I'm all in'. In other words, they are willing to be a part of the launch team that helps shape Turning Point Church and make it happen! How cool is that?
Our next projected gathering is March 29th. From there, our hope and desire is to meet regularly and grow that launch team to 80 people to go public in September!
If you know of anyone who lives in the area and would like to be a part of something new, let me know. We'd love to meet them and see if they are part of God's plan for Turning Point.
We are off and running!

Prayer updates. Many of you have asked what to pray for as we prep to launch. Here's two. One, we found a school but there is only space for Nina available. Schools are packed! Please pray that two spots will open up for Ellie and Christian in the next few weeks. Two, we need financial support. There are no guaranteed finances, budgets or salaries for the church or for our family when we move March 1st. So, God has to move and people need to respond to make this financially possible. Both are key for us and Turning Point Church. Thanks for the prayers!
