Last Sunday, we had our first service for Overcomers Church. It was an exciting day that I have waited for longer than I realized. When you start from scratch, you never really know what shape the church will take on. All I knew is that I wanted to target those who were considered outcasts in most places. In most churches where I have served, no one knew what to do with the family with one or two spouses who had been divorced, the single parent, the grieving widow/widower, and they normally guilt-tripped those who missed a service. So far, the chemistry of this body of believers includes many who have been divorced, children who are there every other weekend due to parental visitation arrangements, etc. We have a past, but that past has been washed away by the blood of Jesus and we look to a bright future in Christ.
