CoaH Brighton Update
CoaH Brighton is just 7 months away from launching our church at Brighton High School! To prepare for our Sunday morning launch, we will have four once a month “preview” services:
Sunday, May 5
Sunday, June 2
Sunday, July 14
Sunday, August 10
Launch Day - Sunday, September 8!!
Right now, we are working together with our future CoaH Brighton members on strategies to best engage the community, how to share the gospel to those far from Jesus, and how to care for those in the family of God. We also have several community partners so we can live local, love local, and share Jesus with those live in our area. Our community partners include our local YMCA, Brighton High School, Brighton Main Streets, Faneuil Gardens, and more. God has certainly opened up doors for us to serve and build relationships with people in our area!
Our immediate next steps are two Vision Nights March 24 and April 7 where CoaH Brighton gathers together to pray, worship, and share in a family meal. We are also handling everyday logistics like gathering worship equipment, clearing out storage areas, and creating a summer calendar for community events.
Our prayerful goal is to start CoaH Brighton with 5 Community Groups, including 50 people and we are almost at that goal! We look forward to next steps in multiplying Community Groups, hosting events for our friends and neighbors with community partners, and organizing visiting volunteer teams to best serve our area.
