After a year and a half of planning, praying and preparing it was time to "do church." Sunday marked the official launch of Christ Church: Macomb. It was a day full of anticipation and anxieties. Would anyone actually show up? If they do, what would they think?

Everyone busied themselves getting the school ready. New lights on the stage. New signs to go up. New crayolas displayed. Once everything was in its place we waited. And the craziest thing happened...people showed up.

The first family I saw were the Bobo's. Great! We won't be shut out, I thought. But the people kept coming. The support from Rochester was great. Family after family kept walking in. Some confessed to skipping service in the morning just to come to CC:M.

My Aunt Ruthie brought two of her daughters and a friend. Wow! People are actually bringing other people. There was another member from Rochester that met her sister at CC:M. Her sister lives close to Mohawk.

I have to say I was more than blown away by how God blessed our little church.
