Yesterday, I was able to be a part of history, and it felt good. For as long as I have been a member at Cottonwood Christian Center we as a congregation have battled to build a new church. Our congregation had grown to 4500 (last I heard) and our sanctuary sat 770. Every week our pastor Bayless Conley graciously served 6 services (with overflow facilities off site) and one spanish service to accomidate to all. Today, our new facility opened. Why is this so historic? Read about it here.
For us, this was an overcoming joy to see the reality of our sacrifices come through. For so long we had seen computer generated images of what was to come, and now we see the true faithfulness of God in this building, and it is good!
So thank you for reading my little post of excitement, after so much hardship to get our land, recieve building permits, and the hardships of building the facility, it is now and will forever be a part of history, and an inspration and landmark for churches in the future who are dealing with the same eminent domain struggles.
Today, is a good day!
