For example, we don’t see the seats in the auditorium as OUR seats, but as THEIR seats—places for…

The Mayflower, Creekstone, and the Dream of a New World

Nothing we do as a church is done apart from teamwork, kind of like the Pilgrims who set sail from England to North America in 1620. They had a vision for New World. But there was no way that any one of them was going to be able to see that vision become a reality….

Level Ground
