I’ll be preaching a Valentine’s theme.

More awesome, the music will be provided by the acclaimed, world-touring Big Hillbilly Bluegrass Band.

We need your help too! Sign up here to volunteer for Sunday.

This is our ‘Preview Service’ aka: Dress Rehearsal before we launch in March. We’d love to have you and to have you give us feedback for how we can improve.

Anything you can do:

Word of mouth, forwarding this to a friend, ‘liking’ this on Facebook or giving me some Twitter love would be a huge help.

Serve with Santa

serve with santaLast week we offered our first ministry event for our satellite church effort, inviting people from the community to join St Nick in packaging food for Stop Hunger Now. St Nick, we pointed out, was originally a Christian bishop who became famous not only for his love of Christ but also his love of the poor.

We had over 100 people from Aldersgate volunteer and we had almost 100 people from the Kingstowne Community come out to participate.

Check it out:

We look to begin with a few events in Advent for the community followed by a Christmas Eve service. Our official launch is penciled for the first weekend of March.

Only God knows what the future has in store but already this process has shown us that it’s healthy to have goals so large they require God’s help.

Part of our work has been to create a website and online presence by which we can communicate our vision and engage people on the web. The logo is meant to recall John Wesley’s original ‘Aldersgate experience’ in which a fresh hearing of the gospel set his heart on fire.

Here’s the new website for Aldersgate: Kingstowne. It’s still in process and kinks still need to get worked out before we can merge our existing site with the new one, but we’re excited for what we’ll be able to do with it.
