SonRise Brings in a New Day

This morning I’m meeting with Pastor Daryl at SonRise Church‘s new digs.  These past few days they moved into their new office/meeting space at what used to be Calvary Chapel.  (Strangely enough, Calvary Chapel is moving into the office/meeting space that SonRise formerly occupied.  Works out pretty well!)

I’m looking forward to checking out the new facility and dreaming along with SonRise about the brand new worship center that should grace the grounds in a few short years.  The plan is to continue meeting for worship on Sunday mornings at Stephen Decatur High School, but maintain offices, youth ministry, meetings, etc. at the new building.  Outside events will also be held there, as there’s plenty of space.  Once the property is paid off, which they’re planning to do in no more than five years, they will begin construction on a large worship facility there near the existing building.

What an exciting time for SonRise!!!  For almost five years they’ve been setting up for worship services on someone else’s property–first at a horse track, then at the high school.  It takes a couple dozen people about an hour and a half to set everything up for the service, and about 45 minutes to take it all down again.  Now that there’s empty space owned by the church, just waiting to be built on, the end of this labor is almost in sight!

It’s so cool to see the great things that happen when people listen to God and trust Him to do things that we could never do on our own.
