This month marks seven years since I first stepped through the doors of LCBC. Although pretty outgoing, I came a bit timid, unsure of what to expect, and far from God. For almost two years I came to LCBC each Sunday, went to one of the main gatherings, and promptly left. On the rare occasion I would run into someone I knew I’d stop for a minute to chat and then quickly find my way to the car.
LCBC, I felt, was great for hiding…hiding my poor choices, hiding my doubts, hiding my brokenness, hiding my story.
But God wants so much more than to provide a place for us to hide.
I wholeheartedly believe that God has provided a place, through LCBC, where he calls us to be part of something bigger than ourselves, to speak into each other’s lives, to impact our communities, to gain a better understanding of who He is and wants for us to be.
And the cool thing is…we don’t have to do that alone.
Friday, September 21st is our next Saturate Crowded House event. Crowded House is just that…a house full of 20somethings who are excited about connection. We’ll take some time to hang out, have meaningful conversation, be challenged through teaching and Scripture, and have an opportunity to jump into a LIFE Group if you’re interested. If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to check one out, I’d like to personally invite you to come and be a part. And, if you’ve been a part of the Saturate Community for a while or have been to one of our Crowded Houses in the past, know that this one will have a different feel and flavor to it.
It took me a long time to know that my choices don’t define me, that everyone doubts, that God works through brokenness, and that my story is definitely one worth sharing…and all that finally clicked for me when I began doin’ LIFE with others.
