It looks like church planting will be a major theme for me this year. We are continuing to move forward with plans to plant New Community Bronzeville sometime- God willing- in early 2010. Because some of us who are involved with this new church are not currently residents of Bronzeville, I asked some neighborhood experts to talk about the things they appreciate about their neighborhoods history, culture, and residents. (Not sure why the video is so small; sorry about that.)
Vodpod videos no longer available.
We had another great event a few weeks ago to let folks know about this new church. Karlos and Michelle (seen in the video) hosted the first event and this one was held at Bronzeville Coffee and Tea Inc. Not only is this a great coffee shop in Bronzeville (good coffee, comfortable space with original artwork, and free wifi), they were wonderful hosts for the more than 50 folks who showed up for this event. Those of you on the South Side need to check this place out.
If you are local and interested in this new church, please let me know. Talking about New Community Bronzeville is one of my current favorite things to do.
