As you know, we have been running out of space at East Van. On many Sundays, we are seeing over 200 people in attendance. This growth means that some guests are being turned away, finding it too difficult to get seats.
As a community we have wondered:
How do we create space for others?
How do we make more room not just in our building, but also in our friendships and community life?
After looking at all of our options, we have decided to move to two services this fall. Starting Sunday, Oct. 7, our new service times will be 9:15 am and 11:15 am.
I recognize that some will be more excited by this news ("We're growing!"), than others ("But 10:15 was the perfect time!"). Our hope and prayer is that the result will be two thriving communities at East Van where new friends can find community and spiritual transformation.
Pray with us as we make this significant change.
In the coming weeks, we will be contacting you to hear about how this impacts you and which service might be your new home.
