Hey ONEchapel Family and Friends!
I’ve really been enjoying NOW PLAYING the past few weeks as we have looked at great movies, finding spiritual truths and learning biblical concepts. Pastor Brent did a fantastic job last week as we watched “Walk the Line” and enjoyed the redemption story of Johnny Cash. Remember, you are not nothin’—you are somethin’ in Christ!
I made the announcement last Sunday that we are officially moving to a new location! ONEchapel will be meeting for Sunday services at our brand new location starting sometime in late October or early November. After an amazing year of meeting in the movie theater, we are outgrowing it and now expanding to a venue that we will have access to all through the week!
The name of the building complex is Monterey Oaks. It is a commercial building that hosts several businesses located on the frontage road on the north side of 290 just west of Monterey Oaks Blvd. It’s going to take a few weeks for all of the tenant improvements to be made and we are looking forward to our first services there which will still be at 9:30 and 11:30am.
This is going to be an exciting season as we try to accommodate the growth that God is giving us. People are making commitments to Christ every Sunday and joining our family of believers, so lets be good stewards and take care of every person who comes to ONEchapel. We’ve got to continue to be a REAL church where everyone is accepted and where all are discipled and encouraged to be all that God wants them to be.
Here are a few facts and figures about the space:
- 8,881 square feet, plus more than 3,500 square feet of lobby area available to us every Sunday.
- More than 450 seats and three large classrooms.
- First right of refusal for additional space as it becomes available.
- A kitchen area and storage space.
- A huge parking area available for occasional outdoor events.
- Address: 5508 Highway 290 West Austin, TX 78735
- Five minutes south of our current location at Barton Creek Mall.
Of course, we will have some extra expenses as a result of our move, like chairs and some audio/visual elements. So, please continue to give generously and help make this transition as smooth as possible. I am committed to faithfulness and good stewardship in all that we do, so that ONEchapel will always be a place people can trust.
AUSTIN DISASTER RELIEF NETWORK
As you know, ONEchapel is partnering with Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) to provide volunteers for the wildfire relief effort. This disaster has once again shown us that the Body of Christ can be a powerful influence to serve people in need if we are prepared and ready. Jesus wants to use us, and he will, if we’re prepared.
Every new volunteer that wants to join the ADRN network is required to take a 3hr class to give you an introduction to ADRN. This training is completely free. The next general volunteer training for ADRN is coming up tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 20th. 6:30-9:30pm at Grace Covenant Church Offices, located at 9508 Jollyville Road, Ste. 201 (Grace 360.org building). Let’s get prepared!
