FUSIONchurch in Atlanta, GA, just had the grand opening launch this past Saturday, March 21, 2009, in an art gallery just north of downtown.
This brand new church brought together 100 people to meet up over creative expressions of faith… mostly young adults. The entire praise team and drama team are all 20-somethings… and that pastor guy is still (barely) a young adult as well.
It’s also great that the treasurer is nearly 70 and a few other couples in their 60’s are supportive of the vision to have a casual, contemporary & creative church led by young adults and targeting young adults.
This “baby church” is now 3 days old… and many new young people are caring for it deeply and have indicated a desire to volunteer.
It is so encouraging to see the desire of young people to serve GOD. They are going to fulfill the vision of FUSIONchurch: UNLEASHING THE POWER OF TOGETHER.
Just this week, not only did FUSION worship in music, singing, teaching, prayers and praise… they also raised money to send Mercikley, in Brazil, to a university for an entire year!
Yes, Mercikley will feel the power of FUSION… it will change his life forever. My prayer and confidence is this: that it will also change my life and yours… as we make a difference together!
Here’s my “Baby Prayer” for FUSIONchurch:
GOD. we submit to you. we are now a 3-day old church. we are just a baby… but we are Your baby.
Care for us, guide us, teach us, lead us, feed us, hold us, mold us, make us, break us, take us into Your plans from before time itself. May we fulfill our destiny in You, since we are created in Christ to do the good deeds You have designed us to do.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Have a great week exploding God’s love all over others!
