As I walked through the almost-enclosed portion of our new Student Worship
Center I could not but envision the gathering of people of all ages in that building. The new building will not only house a new worship venue for our youth
and college students but it will have something we currently do not have – a
place to gather on our way to worship and Life Groups and all the other activties we have. We are a culture constantly on our way somewhere and we take too
little time to STOP and visit and get to know one another. This is not just a
“youth building” but one for all ages!
