Six years ago this week we launched our first ever “Monthly Pre-view Services for 217church.” Just six months before that date, our mother church, Princeton Alliance Church made the decision to set aside $50,000 as seed money for us. That seed money has grown, incredibly! Little did we know what would happen while we were in the Pre-launch phase as we started the church in 2009. Are you kidding me? That was 6 years ago? Yes it was!
We now are preparing for our official six year anniversary in February of 2016. We are celebrating by entering into a 40 Day Spiritual Growth Emphasis called #RELAUNCH, kicking off February 3, 2016. We will be relaunching EVERY aspect of 217church. Small groups, prayer, weekend services, youth, kids, media, you name it, we are RELAUNCHING it!
I want you to help and RELAUNCH the church by joining a team. On Sunday October 25th at 4 PM at 3 Del Mar Way in Monroe, NJ we are having our 1st Relaunch Team celebration gathering, and it will be a party! All our vision owners who are going to help Relaunch 217church are invited. YES, IT’S FREE.
We are taking faith steps now preparing how God will use us in the future.

Why Relaunch? #Relaunch is a powerful, church-wide, 40 Day spiritual growth emphasis re-launching 217church that will help us to:
#1 Celebrate What God Has Done – We will be telling the 217church story affirming where God has called us to and all he has done. We will celebrate stories and give context to what has happened here in Mercer County over the last 6 years through the faithfulness of the church. 235+ baptisms and thousands of people fed, to name a couple. We will have a season of prayer, fasting and celebration thanking God for all He has done. (Nehemiah 1)
#2 Clarify How He Is Positioning us – We are a multisite church strategically placed in a mobile setting (a theater and school) to reach thousands of people. Strategic positioning is critical. We will examine all the resources and unique situations God has us in so we can maximize every relationship, and especially learn how to live out our values and the purpose he has called us to. (Rom 8:28-29)
#3 Cast A Vision For The Future – We will recommit to our vision ownership covenant because the future is bright and hopeful. We are a city imbedded within the central New Jersey community to shine the light of Jesus. We will seek God for more specifics about the future of our church and refresh our vision seeking His preferred future is for us. (Habakkuk 2:2)
I couldn’t wait to unpack that trailer and worship the Lord that Sunday and I can’t wait to walk through this season together with you!
