By the great grace of God, after much prayer and diligent searching, we have located a new center city gathering space for our next season of life together, following Jesus.
Starting Sunday, April 1st at 10am, we will relocate our Sunday gatherings to the AMC Theatres in Pacific Place on 6th and Pine.
This is a significant answer to countless prayers over the last five months. Please take some time to thank our gracious and kind Father for providing so abundantly.
Here are some of the details:
Space: AMC has various theater sizes up to 600 seats. Our initial theater will seat 225.
Kids: The kids will have a cool, unique, safe, corner set aside, with floor-to-ceiling windows, in which to learn about and grow in Jesus (and easy bathroom access!).
Time: We will keep our 10AM, Sunday morning, gathering time.
Storage: AMC has agreed to allow us to store our gear on-site, saving us countless dollars and hours.
Baptism: AMC has also agreed to allow us to hold baptisms. That’s no small deal, as that involves them allowing us to bring 400 gallons of water into one of their theaters.
Post-Service: There are countless options for places to eat, connect and shop following our gathering.
Parking: Though many will be able to walk, there is ample street parking within a two block radius that is free on Sundays.
Transit: Pacific Place is close to all transit lines, including the LightRail and SLU trolley.
Location: Pacific Place is also a well-known landmark, therefore very strategic, right in the heart of the city. We’ll also be closer to major downtown population centers.
Price: All of our research indicated we would be paying 2-4x’s what we’re paying now if we were to move. Yet, at AMC we’ll be paying only $100/Sunday more than we’re paying right now. Amazing.
That said, we now get to celebrate our first birthday on April 1st as a newly forming church at a new location. This is a huge providential win for us.
What do we do from here?
First, as I mentioned above, please take some time to thank our great God for providing so abundantly, in His perfect timing. Second, please spread the word regarding our move! The best way to make this move known is via word-of-mouth. Third, please continue to ask Jesus to go before us as there are many details to work out. This is no small move, particularly amidst an already busy season.
