So Totally Stoked; This Entry May Seem More Like Rambling

About a month or so ago, I blogged about some exciting stuff going on in our lives that I wasn't able to talk about...yet! Well, as of last night, this very same exciting stuff has become public knowledge so now I can talk about it all I want. To be honest, I'm not a very good secret keeper in general, but when the secret is this huge, I'm more of a secret keeper failure. I may have let it slip on more than one occassion, but I chalk it up to more of an outburst of the overflow of my heart then anything else.

For five years, Neil and I have been attending Grace Community Church. More specifically, we go to Fusion, a young adults service that meets on Sunday evenings. In all actuality, to us atleast, Fusion is more than just a service. It's our church, our community, our family. So when I heard that TJ was moving towards "transplanting" Fusion to the Catonsville/Elkridge area, it was a no brainer. Hello, we live in Catonsville. We love Fusion. Basically, we're changing the location of where we worship.

I don't really have a lot of time to go into all the details of the whys and hows and what nots? But I will say that my first response to TJ was "why didn't we do this 3 years ago?" It's a good move for TJ, for Fusion, and for us. I'm so excited, I can barely keep it together. Seriously, I felt like I was going to explode last night as TJ & Mark Norman were making the official announcement to Fusionites.

So what comes next? People will have to decide whether they stay at Grace and join a movement to shepherd the young adults left behind or to go with Fusion, or whatever it's new name might be, on an exciting adventure in the Catonsville area.

Can I just say that Grace Community Church is 100% behind this move, prayerfully and financially? There have been some rumors floating around that are simply not true. And even if they were, who cares? It's clear to me that God is all up in this. And in case you're wondering, this decision in no way impacts my ministry at and through camp.

Speaking of camp, if you want to know what's going on, check out!

Exciting! You're in for a glorious whirl-wind. Church planting (& transplanting) can be the best and hardest thing you'll ever do! Our prayers and blessings go with you!
