I posted this in the Local chat section before I saw a Newark section...
Hey guys, I just wanted to let people in the Newark area know that there is a new church starting in cinema center 3 theater in Newark.
First, me and a group of my friends were talked into visiting...
The music was so good and the people so real (not churchy) that I wanted to come back. I think what I like best about this place is its great for young people college age and young families. Most of us are 20s and 30s but everyone is welcome! The atmosphere is laid back and loving, I feel like they tell you the truth about the bible but don't condemn you. They are real people too and get that we are far from perfect. The things I've learned there are relevant to me and not just preachy stuff that goes over my head so I tune out. So come in your jeans or stilettos, with your piercings or your bible either way it's a pretty authentic place.
One thing the pastor said this morning was something like... the theater seats all have little rips and stains they are not new and shiny and neither are the people that will fill them. Jesus was an outcast who hung out with unsavory people who were a little strange. So why is it that I feel like if I don't act or look the part when I go to a church I don't fit in? I haven't felt like that at all here. So that's why I am inviting people (believe me this isn't my nature). Plus, how cool is it that it's in a movie theater?
Here is what it says on Facebook (Incompatible Browser | Facebook)
We are so excited to introduce you to Newark's newest church. A life-giving church called True Life Church.
We believe that church should be an enjoyable experience, so we have created a casual and comfortable environment where you can grab a cup of gourmet coffee, relax, and be yourself.
There will be child care for your birth through 5th grade with fun, powerful programs and loving workers in a safe environment for all ages.
Our first service is Sunday February 12, 2012 at 10:00am at the Cinema Center 3 theater in the Newark Shopping Center just off Main Street. The address is 401 Newark Shopping Center, Newark DE 19711.
