A New Year. A New Time. 9:09

Hello Friends,

Welcome to a new year of God’s grace!

This year we’re going to do something a little different. We’re starting our regular Sunday morning church service at 9:09 am. We’re letting you know because we want you to know that you’re invited!



Yes, you read that right—9:09. Sounds like an odd time for church, doesn’t it? Then again we’re the church that’s been meeting at your local movie theater—Showtime Cinema. It’s not a cathedral. But it sure is comfortable. And the chairs have cup holders.

Many people ask, “Why do you meet a movie theater?” Simply put, because Showtime Cinema has been a great place for us to meet. Seven years ago we decided to start a new church from scratch—a church designed to reach people who didn’t grow up going to church, people who stopped going to church, or people like many of you who just have questions about God, Jesus, or the Bible. So we wanted to create a safe, welcoming place for people like you to come as you are, learn about how much God loves you, and find helpful guidance for your life.

Over the last couple years we’ve been growing. After starting with just a handful of people we’ve grown into a church family of people from all different backgrounds. We’re excited about that! In fact we’re in the process of purchasing a 15 acre piece of land on Loomis Rd. here in Franklin where we hope to soon begin the process of building our own community focused ministry center. We want to keep sharing Christ’s victory and helping to make a difference in this community for many years to come.

So for now, in 2014 come check out church any Sunday at 9:09 am at Showtime Cinema. You are invited!

Got kids? Come a little early and register them for Bible Quest—our safe, fun, free kids’ ministry that takes place every Sunday morning during the regular worship service.

9:09—It’s the right time for you to get a fresh start through God’s grace.

Sincerely,

Pastor Ben
