A Brief Reflection on Opening Day
On August 8, 2010, after over ten years of faithful giving, planning and praying, Reston Bible Church held our first services in our new church home in Dulles, VA.
How does a pastor express his thanks to so many people who have made all this a reality? We had six hundred more adults than we normally have. We went through 32 gallons of coffee. (Is it any wonder the toilets were clogged?)
We have many challenges ahead of us and we will need your patient cooperation over these next few months. As your pastor, I just wanted to say how thrilled I am to help shepherd such a wonderful group of people who truly want to see the kingdom advanced throughout the world. You have blessed my life and family more than you could ever know.
To God be the glory.

we celebrate and rejoice with you! Wish we could have been there!!!
Paster Mike, it seems to me that before you begin a third service that a simplier solution might show that one is not needed. that is, insert at least one more hour between the two existing services. Folks are doing what the church has said you want them to do and that is stay around and get to know each other after the services. so, for the past 4 services the early service has not cleared out of the church nor the parking lot making it the mess that it is now. perhaps a third service will be needed due to growth but if it is the schedule as laid out still does not leave time for the services to clear out of the church and the parking lot for the next one. So before putting the extra workload on you and the staff, I suggest you try this “simplier” solution to the parking problem and we may find that there isn’t one. God bless you and Reston Bible Church.
