Greetings from The Downtown Church! This is a bi-weekly email with information about events, updates, and other fun things from the leadership of the church.

I know it’s early to be waxing nostalgic about the past year, but as I began to plan for the rest of 2021 I was amazed to note something extraordinary about The Downtown Church. Since the pandemic began in 2020 and by the end of this year, we will have had ten different voices bringing the message in worship. Only two were pastors (Jeff Johnson and myself). We have had 20 different families put together children’s moments that have helped us all stay connected and experience creative ways of sharing Holy Scripture through the eyes of a child.

This month has been extraordinary as well. We have seen the restart of The Downtown Kids with Carla Pate, a Bible Study with Jim Millsap on Sunday mornings, and The Downtown Youth with Cody Williams on Sunday evenings. As I write this Ronn, Julie, and Claire are busily contacting people and inviting them to be greeters in October.

Extraordinary in that so many have said “yes” when asked. Extraordinary in that you have given me the opportunity to be where I have needed to be for my family, health, and rest with grace. Extraordinary in the gifts you have brought to bear. Extraordinary in the number of people in this church engaged in helping all of us live out our faith in Jesus Christ, both in person and online.

I don't have any great conclusions to draw from all this today. I’ll leave it to you to think about what it means for you to be part of an extraordinary church family. For me, I’m just extraordinarily grateful.

See you Sunday, online or in person,

The Downtown Church is going to have our very own Pizza Night at Millsap Farm! We are excited to have the space to spread out and just have some fun as a church family. There'll be pizza for all, live music, and space to play. You can sign up on our website. All you need to bring are chairs and something to drink! We are very excited to get together for a fun, fall evening!
This is the last week of Jim Millsap's Sunday morning group through the book of James. BUT the Sunday morning group will continue on with a new subject. This is open to anyone and will start at 9:15, both in-person and online. We will also have the nursery and toddler rooms open for this group, so if you need to bring your kids, no problem! We've got it covered. You can sign up on our website right here.
If you haven't heard, The Downtown Youth is up and running! We meet every Sunday night from 5:30-7pm. It's always a good time, we promise, but if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Cody Williams and he will have the answers. This is open to all students in grades 6-12. Bring a friend! We have food! See you this Sunday.
