A couple years ago I heard a great idea for launching a worship gathering in Stan Granberg’s Church Planting class at Harding Graduate School: throw a baby (church) shower!
So that’s what we’re going to do.
We want to give our supporters a tangible way to help us start our worship gathering, much the same way friends would shower future parents with gifts to care for their new child. Our partners in mission will have the opportunity to purchase materials for Storyline that we’ll use in our monthly worship gatherings.
So we’ve registered with Target and Wal-Mart (absolute musts for baby showers) and are working with our primary partnering church, South MacArthur Church of Christ, to host the shower event. We’ll tell stories of what God is doing through Storyline, bring Storyline people to meet our partner churches, have a time of prayer, and enjoy some good dessert.
If you’ live in the Dallas area and would like to come – you’re invited! If you’re not in the area, but would still like to contribute to the shower, you have two options: 1) purchase an item through one of the online registries (see below) and have it shipped to Storyline Christian Community at 3523 McKinney Ave. #223 Dallas, TX 75204; or 2) donate to Storyline via Paypal at www.storylinecommunity.com/generosity-box/.
Where: South MacArthur Church of Christ, Fellowship Hall, 1401 South MacArthur Blvd. Irving, TX 75060
When: November 16th, 2-4 p.m.
How: Storyline is registered at Target & Wal-Mart – click here for the Target registry, and click here for the Wal-Mart registry. Gift cards for audio equipment can be purchased at Musician’s Friend.com. There will also be a money tree available at the event.
