So close and yet so far! Those song lyrics from Elvis Presley are not entirely accurate but they are “close.” The more accurate lyric may read like this: “We have arrived, yet there is still much to see and do.”
Arrival was made on the new campus for a glorious Christmas Eve service!
However, a new campus, with new equipment means there is still much to learn, tweak and unpack.
Due to some inspection delays and changes our window for moving everything from 5050 Bucks Schoolhouse Road to 5041 went from about 13-15 days to 6. We made it, but many of the classrooms still need to be unpacked and set-up. “Treehouse” looks out of this world, but still needs to have the stage, sound and video installed and tested to be ready for our children and their families.
Maybe the best sign we can put on the door to God’s new campus for Immanuel is this:
We are open for business, pardon our dust while there is still work being done. For all who enter “Saddle up your horses we have a trail to blaze, through the wild blue yonder of God’s amazing grace.”*
