We have been doing a satellite video campus on Sunday mornings from our church in Albuquerque in the downtown area of town for months now. Renting the El Rey theater for Thursday nights (Renovate College Group) and then Sunday morning at 11AM for main church services has been our M.O...until last night! We decided to do a "relaunch" of MetroCalvary and move the time to Sunday nights. Last night was our first night. With special music and worship led by Phil Wickham, we cranked it up downtown! As you approached the theater from the outside you could hear our turntable ministry (record scratching) drawing a crowd already. Inside was abuzz with people getting espresso drinks, putting bibles in seats and spending the last few moments before the event in fellowship with each other. There were 600 people who came out for our first night and brought friends and relatives, many of whom came forward at the end of the night to receive Christ. It was wonderful. We're hoping that many who live in that area will start making Sunday Nights at Metro their church night and create an outreach in downtown Albuquerque. All I can say is that the Lord really blessed the worship and teaching of His word. It was so exciting that I think I'm just going to go there in person and teach the Word on Sunday nights. It reminded my of our beginnings in the Far North Tehater so many years ago. A fresh work is underway!
