Four months ago we sat down with the leadership of our church and unpacked a vision to reach the 2,000+ students right outside the church doors. This past weekend was the Grand Opening of The Gate Heerhugowaard, a youth center for the youth of Heerhugowaard. What an incredible weekend! On Friday night we hosted a Grand Opening All Nighter for the youth of the church, on Saturday we (slept and then) hosted a Grand Opening Dinner for all of the 40 volunteers who will be dedicating their time to work in the Gate.
Sunday was a busy day with the unveiling of the Gate to the church, the Open House for the city, friends and area churches, and a “Thank You” dinner for everyone who participated in the renovations. So enough words already! Here are some pics from the weekend.
