Today I filled out the statistics form for our denominational partner. I filled in all of the numbers for church attendance and small groups. I added up the little kids and punched all of my numbers to send them off to Springfiel, Missouri, so that they can be proud of a church plant thousands of miles away. However, when all was said and done, I realized that they missed a box…Online Attenders!
We recently got an email that we wouldn’t have gotten ten years ago:
I am not a member of your church but I watch all the sermons on the internet. I love what you and your church represents and would like to tithe using your church. Do I address it to the Coffee Church or North Creek Church on the money order or Check? Thanks for Being the Wonderful Church you are.
We live in a day and age where people are being fed, growing, and giving to a church that, for whatever reason, they are unable to attend on a Sunday morning. It’s just another reminder that there are ways of doing church that we haven’t even thought of, yet. There are new methods, new perspectives and new ideas that are yet to be had.
I look forward to the ever-expanding creativity that God has blessed us with that will change the world through His Word. And here’s to the online campus! We’re so glad to have you as a part of North Creek Church.
