Our church has been thinking about doing a church plant for a long time now. And it has been a journey to watch the Holy Spirit lead us to this day. We would never have picked the little town of Hillsboro but God opened doors and so this is where our very first church plant is!
And the new pastor is our son-in-law!
I was so blessed to have people cover for me in the nursery at Grace so I could attend the opening day with my sweet family.
Many from our church have tagged along to help launch this new church. Some who have been so involved in our own ministry at our church. It will mean others will need to step in and fill their shoes. So I am excited to see who God brings along!
For this very first Sunday, the "Bro" (Hillsboro church) met at the fair grounds and the nursery was in this tent. The children thought that was pretty cool! Next week they will be meeting at the school, Lord willing. But this was a great place and the weather was very cooperative!! A beautiful Easter morning!
This little girl did NOT want me to take her photo. She just turned her back.
But here is a picture Amanda was able to capture. Miss Lily is just too precious!
How I will miss these sweet little munchkins in my nursery!!
When church was over, they had to load up the trailers will all the supplies.
Adam took us downtown to show us the office.
It will be exciting to see what God has in store and whom He will bring to Himself!
