I would like to share a short story…
Before our worship service began on Monday night at The Gathering a man sitting in the front row motioned for me to come over. I recognized him, but had never formally introduced myself. He was wearing a knit cap and a red sweater, and was carrying a backpack. He told me that he has really enjoyed the service the past few weeks, which in his estimation, would be a shock to his family and friends.
“My family wouldn’t believe me if I told them I’ve been going to church for the past few weeks. I’ve never believed in God and certainly never attended church,” he said. I asked him why he has enjoyed being at Embrace on Monday evenings.
His answer was simple, “I feel good here. I think I have heard God speaking to me for the first time in my life. This church is doing good work. I just want you to know that.”
That’s what we’re about at Embrace.
