They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe...praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. and the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:42-43, 47 NIV
It was 2004 and everyone wondered where the kids and grandkids had gone. In response, Room 211 was boldly created to attract millennials to a multi-sensory experience where the Gospel would be more relevant to them through music and parable preaching. Worshippers kept on inviting others and attendance quickly exploded beyond the walls of the North Ministry Center.
With more and more young people attending, marriages, children, Christ Kids and Christ Schools were next. Baptisms became more and more frequent in all services. Once again, the congregation boldly responded with their blessings to fund a multipurpose West Ministry Center for worship and an Education Center for children's ministries. More homes were purchased to provide on-site parking. Children's ministries continued to grow by leaps and bounds. Worshippers are still inviting others. Space was again at capacity. Now what?
On the 10th Anniversary of Room 211, the people of God reACTed with their blessings once again to pray for God's guidance, stay at Central or go as a "missionary," and give to tear down houses for more parking at Central and start a new temporary worship center at South. Today, by God's continued grace and blessings, all worship services continue to grow to serve and reach more people for Jesus Christ!
You are part of this journey, this opportunity, this plan. This is an exciting time for Christ Lutheran, Christ Schools, and Christ Kids! Let's join Jesus on His mission in central and south Lincoln today!
