We're designed for community.

As I was reading a [get this] secular book today to prepare for our little man’s soon arrival, I came across a subtitle of a chapter: “We’re Designed to Have Networks.” I thought this was incredible that even a non-Biblical book would call us to live closely with one another, but how even more important for the Christ-centered person to live in a network [AKA community]!?

Rewind to about 19 months ago…

When Jason and I started at Valleydale, we were nervously and excitingly expecting Charlie B. During that time we were also anticipating the birth of Iron City Church and Jason’s long awaited graduation from seminary. However, though that should have been one of the most joyous times of my life, I found myself sitting in the battlefield of Post Partum Depression. I know now why the Lord chose to take me through this period of sadness, but at the time, I was angry and alone. He did not pull me out of the depression overnight, but among other things, He orchestrated (Psalm 138:8) a network that would help to draw me out of this silent battle I was facing. He gave me Iron City…He gave me you.

All of this to say, my hope is that if you are a member, a regular attender, or thinking about visiting Iron City Church, please know that Sundays are wonderful and we can’t wait to see you each week, but you are needed for more. You are needed to live in community. It’s been a desire of my heart to see our church grow. Not in numbers, but in relational depth - with Christ and each other.

Thank you for being a community that we can pour into, but more importantly, thank you for being a community that our family can receive love from as well.
