A few years ago our pastor started something called "Secret Church" which takes place twice a year. The purpose behind it is to first study the word, and secondly to highlight and pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. Basically, he takes a Friday night from 6pm-12am and does an in depth study on a particular Biblical topic. It started out with about 1,000 people but has grown tremendously over the years. This past time, thanks to Lifeway, it was simulcasted to over 50,000 people worldwide. The topic was "Crucifixion, Salvation, and the Glory of God", which was perfect since it was held on Good Friday. It was just amazing as it made me reflect on what Christ has done for me! As a Mom of two, it is really hard to find childcare for that length of time (especially when you are nursing one of them), so I was really excited when our good friends offered to watch the kids so I could also attend. They also watched my two nephews (and wouldn't take a dime), which was such a blessing for all of us. Thanks Josh and Jessica!!! Anyway, I highly recommend attending or simulcasting the next Secret Church if possible. You can even simulcast it in your own home :) I think the tentative date is November 4th and you can get more info on secretchurch.org. And don't let the length of time scare you away-there are breaks and it is so good that it just flies by. Promise.
