We were greeted left and right and center as we entered, and guided to the red tent, where we received a VIP packet (with CD) and t-shirt.
The atrium was visually appealing, and I thought it was interesting that rather than free coffee stations like similar churches, they had a full coffee shop with reasonably priced drinks and foods.
They also had a small store, where they sold a small assortment of books and Bible studies as well as their worship DVD.
The band played original songs, but they were generally simple and singable. And the congregation was engaged and enthusiastic.
Interspersed with the singing were Scripture readings (reviewing the Bible passages featured throughout the "Make Your Mark" series the church was concluding this morning) and eight personal testimonies on the impact the series had made on people's lives and families.
The church's senior pastor was on the last week of a study leave, so the message (on 2 Corinthians 5:17-20) was brought by the Frankfort campus pastor, Pastor Ken. I loved that he gave the church a Twitter hashtag to encourage them to tweet comments, reactions, questions, etc., related to the message. The service, which started at 11:30, concluded right at 1.
The church, which also streams their services online, is located at 410 Sporting Court (right off Rt. 4/New Circle Road) in Lexington, Kentucky.
