When my husband and I moved to Pittsburgh a few years ago, we secretly plotted to find the largest church in our area and hide in the back pew.
We were kidding, but sort of not.
But God has a pretty good sense of humor. Instead, he led us to what seemed like the smallest church in the city – a church that hadn’t even officially opened it’s doors!
And while we would have never picked out church planting for ourselves, we’ve been blessed beyond measure to be a part of one.
Through the month of April, friend and fellow Missional Women contributor Joy Rudolph is donating a portion of the proceeds from her Etsy shop to our church plant – Living Faith Community Church of Pittsburgh!
A church planter herself, Joy knows the roller coaster ride of pioneer missions. She interviewed me about our church planting journey over on her site yesterday. I hope you’ll hop over and marvel with me at how God guides us to the exact location he wants us.
Plus, I hope you’ll support our church by purchasing something from her shop! She sent me these adorable flower pins, and I thought of so many ways to use them – on hats, on wreaths, on just about any jacket or sweater, and even as a meaningful gift in an Easter basket.
Yesterday, one of my sweet friends I’m discipling stopped by. She looked so cute, I made her try on the black and white houndstooth pin. Thanks for being such a good sport and super cute model, Toni!
Support our church plant during the month of April and make a purchase from Joy’s shop! What’s more fun that shopping for a purpose?
