Church moves on — with A Simple Faith

  Can two congregations exist in one building? McBrayer believes it happens all the time.

“Any time a church makes the transition to two Sunday morning services, two congregations are created,” he said. “Further, this is an arrangement that Crosspoint has experience with — the Lutheran congregation met at Crosspoint for the longest time before moving to their own location.”

Both pastors agree this is not a merger of two congregations.

"These two groups will remain autonomous of each other, each maintaining their own unique identities — I believe it is an outstanding act of cooperation and partnership," McBrayer said.

"However, we will have many opportunities to partner together for events, some programming, study programs, etc. and especially in the area of benevolence to the local community," Wilson added."
