Back on Track

Church Family, Nearly 17 years ago, I packed up my car and headed to Waco for what I thought would be the next four years of my life. As I started my senior year, I remember a close friend (and now Covenant Member of Harris Creek) first suggesting the idea that staying in Waco after college was a great option and was something I should consider. I quickly dismissed the idea, ...

Regrouping in the New Year

Church Family, In December, we brought you the news that our expansion project was going to be delayed due to the appraisal on the project (including our current building and land) coming back significantly lower than anyone expected. Over the past few months, we have been working diligently to figure out the best way to move forward and where we should go from here. Due to the timing of the news, ...

A Detour on the Journey

Church Family, A little over six weeks ago, we celebrated our one-year anniversary of the launch of the “Our Turn” campaign. That weekend, we came together and had a time of prayer devoted to asking God for the necessary provisions in the days, weeks, and months ahead as we planned to break ground. In the weeks following this event, we have encountered a significant hurdle that has delayed our plans to break ground that I ...

Up for A Hike?

    Any trail that I have hiked (granted, there have only been a few in my life) has always contained at least two vivid realities – a hopeful destination and undoubtedly a painful switchback or two. We all have the idea of the destination firmly in the forefront of our thoughts as the journey begins. Legs are strong. Lungs are good, and confidence is high. But as the elevation climbs, and the trail ...

Story of Restoration

We know how God's presence was evident in previous generations, and we invite God to make Himself known in our time (Habakkuk 3:2). God's story has always been one about restoring peace, and with the "Our Turn" campaign, we recognize our opportunity to see how each person's story is a glimpse to God's greater narrative of peace/welfare. Steven and Jessica Gereghty, covenant members at our Downtown Campus, openly share about a recent ...

By Faith

We are delighted that people of all ages are resonating with the God-given vision of the "Our Turn" campaign. As a church (in a college town) devoted to the discipleship of the next generation, it is important to us that we hear our college students actively involved with the project, regardless of how much longer they may be located in the Waco area. Kara Miller, a Baylor student and a ...
