What did you notice first at Origin Church? The building and the branding.
What did you like best at Origin Church? My fiancee and I recently relocated to the area. He is from Chicago and regularly attended a fairly traditional Methodist church. I am also from Chicago, but moved here after spending four years in Kennesaw, GA. While in Kennesaw I located a church that really was my home, where I was meant to accept Christ for the first time in my adult life. It is called North Metro and it is different from any church I have ever attended. Since moving here I have been looking for something like it, I was growing nervous that this rural area was too conservative to foster the type of church I need in order to commit to going weekly and donate my time.
On Friday of last week I had decided that my best shot was a particular church in town, but I wasn’t thrilled about it. Then on my way home from lunch I noticed a tiny roadside sign that had an interesting logo on it. It didn’t say much and it was on the ground, so I was surprised that I noticed it; but it was enough to make me go home and google it. When we came in to the Depot this weekend I knew that I had found what I was looking for. The message was like it was tailored for me by God. I heard what I needed to, just like when I used to attend North Metro. I will be back, I will bring my children, and I will tell anyone who will listen about Origin.
Do you have any church background? (tell us about it) I was raised in the church but rejected it as a young adult until I found a church that felt like home. Now I am back!
