Frequently Asked Questions: Church Move Feb 2023
Q: Why are we moving?
A: Wow, what an exciting time for our church as we prepare to move to Chelmsford! This new location offers such a wonderful opportunity for growth and ministry as we reach out to the diverse community in this area.
Chelmsford is a bustling city with a rich history, a vibrant downtown, and a strong sense of community. It is also a diverse and growing city, with a population that is both culturally and economically diverse. This is truly a great opportunity for us to share the love and message of Jesus Christ with even more people.
We will have the opportunity to make the new venue our own by developing better facilities, including a larger worship space, rooms for children’s & ROC ministry, meeting rooms for community outreach programs and so much more. This move will allow us to expand our ministry and reach more people for Christ.
As we look forward to this new chapter in our church’s journey, we are reminded of the words of Jeremiah 30:19 “And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of those who make merry; I will multiply them, and they shall not diminish; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.” This passage reminds us that as we trust in God and follow His plan, He will bless our efforts and cause them to flourish. We look forward to seeing the many ways in which God will use us in the city of Chelmsford.
