What would it be like if the local church left the building - locked down? Would anyone notice ...would anyone care?
What if everyone went out and worshipped by being missional? That's what "The Church Has Left The Building" is all about.
On the weekend of November 9 & 10 2013, The Chapel in Sandusky and Norwalk Ohio did something a bit radical for a local church. They closed their doors for all the weekend services and sent some 2000 members and regular attenders out into the local community to serve others and meet the needs of organizations and individuals beyond the walls of the building. This recap video highlighting some of the many activities that groups and individuals participated in.
An estimated 1500 individuals worshipped outside the church building on this weekend alone and many others continue to seek additional and ongoing serving opportunities.
We're aware of Chapel participants reaching out to organizations and individuals across Erie, Sandusky, Huron, and Ottawa counties in Ohio.
