So the big news this last Sunday is that Antioch is moving from the Regal to Summit High.
There are a ton of reasons we are moving out of the Regal and we are pretty excited that such an amazing facility came through just when we needed it!!
On Sunday I conveyed that I dragged my heels more than anyone else on staff (since the theatre felt like my baby), but realized after a while that it isn’t a choice of which option is better… the truth is that the theatre is no longer an option.
Some of the pluses of the school are the theatre (it has over 600 seats so we can go back to 1 service again), the amount of space that we can use for children’s ministries (we were beginning to exceed our limit at the Children’s Museum), the commons area that will allow our church community ample time to hang around after the service and fellowship, the outside areas that can be used by the youth during the summer, the parking, the house lighting (people will actually be able to see their bibles now!!) and the cost — it is actually cheaper per week than the theatre!
It’s going to be a ton of work over the next month as we head towards a January 20th start date. The analogy I have is the initial start up when you are water skiing… you hold on for dear life and then once everything planes out it gets a lot easier :)
