Sunday, February 27 at 10:30 Revo church launched it’s first service. Yes, we’ve had three preview services, but this one….this was it. The pastors, several of the staff, and some volunteers started at 6:30 a.m. to load a huge U-Haul trailer with all our equipment. At 7:00, more volunteers and staff showed up to help unload the U-Haul at the Milton Rhodes Center For the Arts, where we are having services. By 9:30, the place had been transformed.
Worship was great, the sermon was great. There were about 280 people there, about 40% or so being donors or family.
We have to be out of the Center by 1:00 so immediately after the service people start tearing everything down and loading up the truck again.
It was so exciting to be there for the launch. So much time and sweat and tears had gone into everything leading up to that day. It was a great day, exhausting, but great. But out of everything I was a part of last during our week in NC, one thing stood out. And that was how well everyone worked together. We all had one goal and we all worked together to accomplish it. There was no bickering over doing it a different way. If someone needed help doing something, someone went and helped them. I also saw a lot of smiles while people were unloading a truck, putting a stage together, or taking down pipe and drape. Everybody was happy to be serving, happy to be doing what they were doing.
And I was excited to know that I am a part it…or soon will be.
