Sunday night was our 3rd public interest meeting where we personally invited anyone to come and hear more about what God is doing through The Exchange in Pearl. We were so excited to see new people as well as some returning faces take part in the meeting at the Pearl Community Room! At the meeting we laid out the background and vision for The Exchange. This month we also unveiled our five core values that will be built into our DNA as individuals and as a church. (For more information on our core values check back next week.) Finally, we spent time continuing to look at the foundational passage for The Exchange – 2 Corinthians 5:14-21. This month we looked at verse 16 that says, “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.” We discussed what it would look like if The Exchange, as the church, no longer viewed people from a wordily point of view.
We are launching the first round of our small group communities called LIFEgroups in a little over a week, and we saw almost 30 people sign up to join a group at our March meeting! Through LIFEgroups people will have the chance to not only study the Word together but also to do life with one another. LIFEgroups will meet in different homes and for the first five weeks groups will be walking through a study on our core values.
God continues to blow our minds as He builds the team to help launch a new movement to transform a city and a region! Mark your calendars to be a part of the final interest meeting Sunday, April 15th at 6pm at the Community Room in Pearl.
