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
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 becauseon 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!
