It was a long wait, but it was well worth it! A couple weeks ago, our church finally opened the doors to our new building....WAVE Convention Center! We had spent 16 months inside of a small, old, stuffy building. Pastor Steve and the rest of the preaching staff had been conducting seven services each weekend in order accommodate all of the people coming to church. Not anymore though! We now have a brand new, state-of-the-art building that holds 2,500 people!Cushioned stadium seats with armrests, huge flat screens for viewing, a Gloria Jean's coffee shop, and a book store are just a few of the amazing features of the new building! I cannot even begin to explain how exciting it was to walk in the first week! Not only did it smell brand-new inside, but it gave you such a welcoming feeling to see "Welcome Home" posted on the big screens. There was such a buzz in the air because this was what we had all been waiting for! The building definitely did not disappoint! Yet, the best part is knowing what is to come! So far, we are filling the front 1,300 seats during each of the two Sunday morning services. I can't wait for the holidays when the building will surely be filled to capacity! Better still, I can't wait for the days when we have to add more services again because the building is filled on a weekly basis! It is so neat to think of all of the wonderful times that are to be had at Wave Convention Center. The building was built for the generations to come, and it is amazing to think how many lives will be changed there!
