One of the first questions people ask me when talking about planting 7 Mile Road is, “Do you guys have a church yet?”  

Depending on the day, I have one of two answers. If I’m hurried, I’ll say, “No we don’t have a building yet.” But more often, I get so say, “Yes.  We are the church!”

I think it’s a really good thing that 7 Mile Road doesn’t have a public space for now (I’ll probably regret writing that someday). Not having a building for a while might help us remember that the church is a people and not a place.  As we get started, we’re gathering in homes like they did in the book of Acts.  If we outgrow a living room (wouldn’t that be awesome) or when we sense that its time to launch public worship, well be looking for a space.  

But don’t get me wrong.  If you have a building you want to give us, we won’t say no.
