FIREPLACE CHURCH

LAUNCHED JANUARY 31, 2016


We have sparked the Fireplace!  Fireplace Church launched January 31st (snow delayed by one week from our advertised launch date).  Our Launch team was made up
Fireplace2
primarily of Virginia Tech Chi Alpha Alumni, students and staff.We also had several on our launch team who moved to Blacksburg from our home church in Farmville.  Depending on the Sunday we are anywhere from 50-75% college students mainly hailing from Virginia Tech, however Radford, VCOM Med students, New River Community College and Ignite Bible College are also represented.  When I ask most of the students where they are from, the vast majority are either from Northern Virginia or from the Hampton Roads area.  We launched at 101 in attendance and our most recent attendance was 106.  Of the salvations we have seen, there have been several college students, a guy I coach football with and a parent who was visiting his daughter at college.  Last night we hosted a "Welcome to Church Party" with around 60 people who are interested in joining our volunteer leadership team.  Pray that our momentum continues into the Spring!
