Services are back: ArtsTech KCAuthor: AJ | Filed under: Blog
After a two-week hiatus following the closure of the Arts Incubator, we’re restarting our informal Sunday morning services this Sunday (July 17).
The Incubator was a great partnership for us because it gave us a chance to locate ourselves in the heart of the downtown community, volunteer with a visionary nonprofit, and share space with some great folks. We didn’t want church to be something foreign and exterior to our local cultures and friends, and the Arts Incubator helped us live that. Amazingly, we’re now moving on to version 2.0 of this type of relationship.
ArtsTech is another great nonprofit located at the east edge of the Crossroads (1522 Holmes). They combine youth mentoring and arts, with great effect. We got acquainted through a couple volunteer opportunities last year and stayed in touch. When I sat down with executive director Dave Sullivan last week, he invited us, virtually without hesitation, to share their space. We are thrilled.
When I have time, I’ll write a post reflecting on this type of church-nonprofit relationship. Maybe I’ll call it, Starting a Church in Your City’s Basement. We’re amazed and grateful that God has blessed us with not just one, but now two, of these unique, win-win partnerships.
For now, just take note that our informal services are back, punch “1522 Holmes” into your GPS, or just stroll over there Sunday morning at 10:30am. There’s lots of parking. We’re excited to open the title page on this new chapter.
