Yesterday we went to Origins Church. It is a church plant that only began having public worship services last September. They meet in a Holiday Inn meeting room which was nice. Meeting in that location lessens the setup and takedown stress on the people, because the hotel does much of it for them.

The church was interesting in that there were a few rows of chairs set up in the back and there were round tables in the in front. It was a different environment than any other church we have been to. It is something like we talked about doing at the Quarries, but never did.

The music was good, the preaching was good. Brannen Padgett started a new sermon series on who Jesus really was and is verses the messages about Jesus that are put out by our culture.

We have now gone to four or five of these smaller church plants and heard about several others. I wonder how many new church plant groups of 100 folks or less are meeting around this city every weekend.

  1. I like reading about the churches you visit. I would have liked more detail on this one. 🙂

  2. Thanks Cheswa. here is a detail: there were two paperback ESV’s on the middle of each of the tables for folks to use. The thing is that I don’t want to come across as the church critic like the guy reviewing restaurants in the newspaper. What struck me about this one is that the setup and takedown was much easier than others we have seen.

    And what is up with young men today pushing their hair up from the sides to stick up in the middle to vaguely resemble a mohawk? Just sayin’ that every time I see that, I want to ask the person how long into their life are they going to do that with their hair….till they are 30? 40? later than that?

  3. Haha. It’s called a “faux-hawk” and I imagine they will stop doing that with their hair when their kid says, “Dad, faux-hawks are so 2010!”
