Treasuring Christ Church meets at the Wells Fargo IMAX Theater at Marbles, so you have to give yourself a little time to get parked and get there, but downtown Raleigh isn't so busy on Sunday morning. *I* was our worst enemy getting there on time! The room where they meet is cozy-feeling and located just past the concessions. (Like the smell of movie popcorn?)
People were very friendly, and we could feel the Holy Spirit's presence there as we worshiped. The week that we went, they were sending an obedient young couple to Dayton, Ohio to plant a church. (I found this funny since William & I are from Dayton, and never thought of it as a mission field, but you know what? It is!)
Sean delivered a message of hope and love, and I spent the whole time trying not to cry, just overwhelmed by the Spirit and the love.
One thing I know about this church -The really care about the community around them -reaching out to the neighbors even before they tornadoes hit them this past spring.
God is with them, and I love their hearts! (I have warm fuzzies remembering our visit!)
Check out their website. It's loaded with info! Treasuring Christ's messages are also available online!
Visiting TCC really opened our eyes to the different ways that we've observed church expansion...sending far away as we saw here, planting a church in a nearby area, launching a satellite church, or growing a church bigger and BIGGER into a "mega church."
Mark 16:15 (NIV)
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
