I was sitting in church this morning and Richard leaned over and asked, "What are you thinking?" I guess I was wearing the look. We sit in the cry-room in the back of the church where we have a view of the entire congregation. I leaned over and replied, "I think there's one person out there who is under 60." I wish I could say I was exaggerating, but I wasn't. There literally was one person, a 6th grader sitting with her grandmother, who was under 60 (maybe a few are still in their late 50's). There were 5 "families" in church today, they were in the cry-room with us. As I relayed these thoughts to one of my supportive-former session members after church, I asked her if she thought it would help if they could sit back there and see it. Her response, "They know it Kendra. We're providing hospice care to a dying congregation."
Anyone know of any church successful at creating a sub-church within an exisiting church? I really see it as our only hope.
