OTTER CREEK IS MOVING!!!!!!! YEA!!!!! I've been DYING to share this with the blog community since August. We've not known for sure until last week that everything would work out, but this is a huge answer to prayer! This gives us so much more bang for our dollar. PLUS--no "REACH" campaign for the next 20 years. HALLELUJAH! Here's a shot of the front of our new building that was originally built for Brentwood Baptist and then recently owned by the Living Word church. (Julie Woodroof took all these great photos!)
Here's the sign and view from the road.
This is a cool picnic area on the property. It will be so nice for Spring and Summer gatherings and life group functions!
This picture is of the sanctuary and was taken from the balcony looking down.

Here's a view from the stage area.
This picture is of the gym and family life center. It's incredible! A full kitchen, room for dinner theater, a great place for the youth, etc. YEA!!
We are all really excited! Our first Sunday will be February 26th, 2006! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!! Praise God for providing this alternative for us!
we have a lot to do in the next 10 weeks. There's a lot of processing of emotions too. After 75 years on Otter Creek Rd, this is a huge transition for our family. Sheryl and I have only been here 10 years and yet we got engaged in the Otter Creek Sanctuary one January night in 1998. WE got married there, our kids were all born while we went there and we've experienced a lot of life in just 10 years. Imagine those who've been around for 75 years! We plan to have a season of remembrance and celebrating the past. And then we'll have a season of new beginnings once we get into our new space. It's going to be incredible.
Meanwhile, rehearsals and plans shift into HIGH GEAR for this weekend. I hope those of you close enough to Nashville will plan to come. Saturday and Sunday nights...7pm.
