House Church: Now Open

January 29, 2021

During the pandemic when large churches had to close, many individuals and families were left without a place to fellowship and hear the teaching of the Word of God. Some people stopped going to church while others watched services online.

Misti heard Pastor Jerry share about the idea of starting a House Church—a place for learning the Word of God, encouraging one another, and fellowshipping with other believers. She felt led to start one in her home.

“Four of our six House Church members would not be attending church services of any kind if it were not for our House Church,” Misti recalls. “One member hasn’t regularly attended any church in thirty years and another in more than twenty years.”

When Misti opened up her home, she had no idea the impact that decision would have on others. She had no idea that her home would become a church, a haven for those seeking the Lord and others of like precious faith.

Misti wants others to know the opportunity available to them to start a House Church in their neighborhood. She rejoices, “These wonderful people are now hearing God’s Word because of this new format: a House Church!”
