You know things are going good on a Sunday morning when the place is packed and college students are standing in church, worshiping our Lord with no seat. This morning things were back in action at Christ Chapel's College Ministry on TCU's campus. This time last year I didn't have a church home, which scared me because that was something I was always used to having. After lots of church hopping I found my home at Christ Chapel.
I think I have written about it before, but just to catch you all up to speed I want to tell you a little about Christ Chapel at the Aardvark.
I am guessing you all are wondering what "the aardvark" is. It is actually a local bar on campus, but on Sunday mornings it is much much more than that. I can remember hearing about it when I moved here. The immediate stereotype behind the location is students think it is weird or impossible to worship God in a bar. Also, many students don't really like to hang out there on Saturday nights and then come back on Sunday morning. I was kind of in the same boat this time last year, but then I visited and really felt something cool.
This time of life that I am in is all about taking risks, going outside of my comfort zone, and being okay with doing something different. Worshiping at the Aardvark every Sunday is something that I wouldn't trade for the world. Seeing a packed house every week worshiping is amazing. Seeing this at a bar is unbelievable. God truly is everywhere. He is ever-present. Some of the times I have felt closest to him have been at the Aardvark. It sounds crazy, but God works in mysterious ways and I love every second of it.
Today, we were back at Christ Chapel at the Aardvark and it felt so good to be back. Like I said, the place was packed, but it was so encouraging. I am so excited this year because on Friday nightI went to a retreat with Christ Chapel. I am on the leadership team this year and I am going to have so many great opportunities to to serve and belong to this community. I am seriously so excited for this next year and all that Christ Chapel will be doing. God is doing some real work in this place and I am thankful that I get to be part of it.
Come back here tomorrow to see what organization Southern and Thankful sales is going towards for this month. I am super excited about it, but I feel like it deserves its own post. Can't wait to share it with you!!!
Super thankful for this weekend. God is SO good!

Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
