Talk about bitter-sweet! Last Sunday, during our Easter service in Logan Square, those of us who are working to start New Community Covenant Church in Bronzeville were brought forward and commissioned for this ministry. Some of the folks in this photo have been a part of New Community in Logan Square since the beginning, over eight years ago. While most of us haven’t been around that long, it was certainly a sobering moment to look out at our church family and know that we wouldn’t see them next Sunday.
As sad as it is to be sent, I think we’re all excited that this time has come. Most of us have worked hard for this moment for a year or longer and it’s clear that the time has come to take this next step. It’s been simply amazing to watch what God has done over this past year; who can say what’s to come?
For those of you who are even remotely local, please consider this your invitation to the launch of our weekly services in Bronzeville this Sunday. We meet at Drake Elementary School (2722 S. King Drive) at 11:30.
Here are a few ways to connect with our church:
