We are happy to announce that Breath of Life Mennonite Church has joined out little network of house churches. I met one of their members at a church planting conference in Calgary and we quickly realized how similar our values were. It was at the same conference we began our journey towards affiliating with the Mennonite Church of Saskatchewan. Breath of Life has since joined MC Sask and if things continue as they have been SeedLife will do so as well at MC Sask’s next annual conference.
This May 29th we will have our first whole network gathering in a facility larger than a home. We are still working out how this will look, how we can retain the participatory dna in a larger group. We are still going to eat together. My experience at the worship freehouse of days gone by showed me that one can successfully integrate large group ministry and small group dynamics with a larger group of people. If there is one thing that I miss about larger church gatherings is singing in a larger group. I know others feels the same way. We will have to see how it all looks.
