Twenty years ago my family and I vacationed in Kissimmee, Florida. On the Sabbath we attended a small church in town that met in an unremarkable building but was filled with extraordinary people. One of the things I remember was that they had the potluck catered by a church members. We had a blessed Sabbath but never thought we'd be back again. Little did we know.
I noticed some things: They are using media in their service like few congregations I have seen. All the announcements are locally produced video-shorts with members doing it all. What a great idea. And, most importantly, they involve the youth and young adults in the church at every step. In addition, they are active in community service in the city. No wonder they have grown. They're doing what Jesus asks us to do: "GO!"
