Onsite at Eli Pinney!

Well today has been anticipated for months and months: the team finally being at the elementary school before we start services February 1st. We need the month of January to get used to the building, figuring out where everything will go and practicing set-up and tear-down. We'll also do some Sunday school teacher training and I want the opportunity to cast vision into their lives one more time before we go live.
Today was different though. Today we stopped the business of meetings and agendas and took the whole morning to remember what our awesome Lord did for us. We celebrated with a trifold communion. That is the Bread and Cup (I Corinthians 11:23-32), Footwashing (John 13:1-17), and a Meal or Love Feast (I Corinthians 11:17-22). It takes more time than what many other churches tend to do when celebrating the Lord's Supper, but it allows us to get a real life sense of what our Lord did during that last meal with His disciples. We plan on having this trifold communion eight times a year. Four in our small groups and four on a Sunday morning either as the service or immediately following the service.
