He is Risen!
Thanks for reading our monthly Table Covenant Church Plant e-newsletter! We are grateful for everyone who keeps up with this project and those who faithfully pray for and give to the plant as well.
A couple of exciting things to share as we enter into the wonderful season of Spring.
1. NEW MEETING LOCATION
We are excited to begin meeting in a community center starting at the end of April. We will continue to worship together with Community Covenant Church in Springfield on the first Sundays of the month and serve at a local homeless shelter on the third Sundays of the month, but on the other Sundays we will be gathering at the Green Acres Center. The community center is located near George Mason University in Fairfax and is affordably priced for us. We will also be meeting in the morning as opposed to the late afternoon. We hope and believe that these changes will make us more accessible to newcomers and guests and continue to enable us to be fully present in the city of Fairfax.
2. THE BOOK OF ACTS
During these meetings, we will be gathering to worship together and spend a good amount of time in the book of Acts. We believe that this ancient text will ground us in the story of the risen Christ furthering His kingdom mission through the Church by His Spirit. At the end of the day, that's the story we want to embody as we move forward with this church plant. We are also excited to have this text prepare us for the rapidly approaching season of Pentecost when we celebrate and live into the coming of the Holy Spirit.
3. UPCOMING EVENTS AND HOW TO PRAY FOR US
May 28-30, 2015 -- The next big event is Michael and Min Cha traveling to Minnesota to attend the ECC's Church Planter's Assessment Center. This will be an intensive time at the end of which they will receive either a "recommended" or "not recommended" for church planting from the center. Please pray for assessment process itself, but also for their kids, Sammy who will be staying with the grandparents and JJ who will be accompanying them to Minnesota.
