New City Church goes to the movies

New City Church had it's preview service last Sunday at the Continental Regal movie theater.

It is a interesting idea as the church is now mobile. They move everything in and out for the service in cases and transport on a trailer.

We have been in the middle of an extended heat wave, so being in an air conditioned movie theater was quite nice and the seats are very comfortable.

Interestingly the Pastor told us a story about how he had not filled up the truck that was pulling the trailer and he almost ran out of gas, the truck actually cut out , but he was able restart it and make it to a gas station. I think I will have to tell him my story about running out of gas as that is one of the reasons why I am going to church right now. An interesting parallel.

Pastor Aaron thought they had about 10 new people visiting for the first time. The sermon was very good last Sunday, one of the best ones he has done since I started going to church.

The passage was from Jeremiah, 32:36-41 The part I found most interesting was how Pastor Aaron related that only Jesus could transform a heart, much the same message I heard the night I ran out of gas from the gas station attendant. The gas station attendant must be a church planter too.
