Pre-Launch Team Meetings- We are having a great team of people gather for launch team meetings every other Wednesday. You guys are a fabulous and diversified group of talented, gifted, creative, and visionary people! Thank you all for journeying with us. We have coffee and dessert, share the vision, and enjoy some great community together as new friends. There such a spirit of authenticity and transparency in this group. It’s so refreshing! We will step it up a notch in Novemeber with a city-wide “pre-launch party” for a larger group to come and hear the vision. Pray for our team that we would have wisdom and favor to influence people to come who don’t like church, and find their way back to God.
Location- We have secured our meeting location downtown at the restored and beautiful, Ringgold Depot. The Ringgold Depot is an historic building that dates back to the civil war. It has been renovated into a concert-dinner venue. It seats about 300 people. Kim and I walked in this building while travelling to Georgia in the summer of 2007 and knew it was the perfect place with perfect history and atmosphere for a new church launch. God has worked it all out! Downtown Ringgold is a pristine little town conveniently situated just down the road from the growing part of Chattanooga, Ooltewah, and I-75. We are excited about the opportunity to work with the city of Ringgold.
First Event to Serve the Community- We are passionate about the aspect of serving our community. Our first event opportunity to show our care starts this weekend at the scary Haunted House Depot for the city of Ringgold. We will hand out thousands of balloons, wear our Origin t-shirts, and just care for people. We are expectant of a great relationship with our city. I recently had the chance to meet our city manager, Dan Wright, and he showed me around city hall. We’re both excited about working together as city and people. We hope to add some value making our area of the country a better place to live.
THANK YOU- We are so grateful for the way you respond each month to our newsletters. Thanks for staying faithful through both good and bad economies. We are SO privileged that you enable us to focus ALL of our time and energy toward reaching people. We are changing lives because of YOU!
