Venture On Indeed

With the exit of our pastor, from our Pastor Led church, many members of Venture Community Church were left with a feeling of what we would do next, and where we would go from here.  Some members of our church family decided that this transitional period was an opportunity to move forward to other congregations,  becoming lights to the world in new environments and taking with them all that they have learned and come to love here at Venture Community.  

Many of us have stayed, and an energy of growth and a desire to "be the church" has charged our members as we move forward as an Elder Led church.  Focusing on both the long term goals of seeking a new pastor as well as the immediate actions that we can take now to begin making a difference in our community, Venture Community is thriving in hope, and trust in our God.

We will continue meeting at Shady Shores Elementary School, with an array of visiting pastors, speakers, and worship leaders.  We look to the story of Gideon, and how despite our divided numbers we know that there are great things in store for our vibrant community.

We hope that you join us, as we put our best foot forward and carry on the beautiful traditions that are foundational to the story of Venture Community Church - to be like Jesus, and to be a light to the world.

Venture on...

It is with mixed feelings that the Venture Community announces that Luke has been named as the Senior Minister at Westover Hills Church of Christ in Austin, Texas.  We can't begin to express our gratitude for what he and Lindsay have meant to this small group of believers.  While we are sad to see them go we know that this is an opportunity for him to have a much larger audience for a message we feel needs to be heard by many!  We will always hold a part of them in our hearts!

This has obviously resulted in a lot of changes for Venture.  Some families have opted to use this time to seek other congregations to worship with and we send them on with our blessings!  Other families have decided to remain together and will continue to worship as Venture Community.  While we may be separating  from some on our journey we know that our ultimate destination remains the same!

        nevertheless he
        keeps moving, changing
        pace and approach but
        not direction-'every step an arrival'.

Beginning September 20, 2015 we will be meeting at Shady Shores Elementary,
300 Dobbs Road, Shady Shores, TX 76208 at 10 am.  We invite you to join us as we venture on!
