We are now inside two weeks of the grand reopening of Highland Oaks’ newly renovated Worship Center. For the past five-plus months, we have met in multiple services in the church Fellowship Hall.

While there are worse places to worship, the low ceilings, hot temperature, and lack of traffic space have made it a challenge to put it mildly.

Here’s been the beautiful thing…the experience of sacrificing not only our comfort but our financial resources has opened up a whole new window of the church’s heart. It’s been a beautiful thing. Now, we’ll not only head back into beautiful surroundings…we’ll reenter a more mature and loving family of Christians…better prepared for ministry.

It’s been a long and sometimes arduous journey. But it’s definitely been a worthwhile journey.
