Summit, we had well over 1,100 people at our newest campus launch in Chapel Hill this weekend! This is, far and away, the largest campus launch that we have experienced. I am thrilled at what God has planned for this campus, as we join with him in the mission of drawing people from Chapel Hill to Jesus Christ and his gospel. As I have said before, I believe we as a church are in a special kairos moment, and we want to serve God faithfully with the success that he has given us.
As excited as I am about the 1,100 that attended our Chapel Hill campus this weekend, I was also saddened by another number: 200. Nearly 200 people walked away, not because we treated them poorly or they felt unwelcome, but simply because we ran out of seats. We want to see the city of Chapel Hill transformed by the gospel, and none of us wants seats to prevent people from hearing that gospel.
With that in mind, we have decided to launch a third service at Chapel Hill, on Sunday evening at 5:00 PM! The earlier services will remain, so you can now attend at 9 am, 11 am, or 5 pm. Summit, we want to leverage what we have to ensure that seating capacity does not keep people from hearing about Jesus. So join us at our newest Chapel Hill campus—now with three services: 9 am, 11 am, or 5 pm!
*Note: Childcare will be available at 9am & 11am (through fourth grade), and at 5pm (only though pre-K).
