Happy 10th anniversary, ACC!

Our church here in Waco, Antioch Community Church, celebrated its 10th anniversary on Sunday. It's crazy that it's been 10 years since we started! I (Jeff) was a charter member as a senior at Baylor, and Bethany attended ACC her junior year at BU. We immediately returned to ACC when we moved back to Waco, and a couple of months ago officially joined (Bethany)/rejoined (Jeff) as members.

Back when the church first started, we didn't have a building, so we met in various spots across Waco -- the convention center, the fairgrounds, even once at a country bar! Then we bought a building, but it needed massive renovations. So to save money, while the building was being worked on, we met in the parking lot for several months. Thus, for the 10th anniversary service, we returned to our roots, braving the summer heat for a couple of hours to celebrate God and what he's done in the past decade here!

Here's a photo from Sunday; Bethany and I are circled in yellow (BabyBear was in his stroller between us). (See more photos here.)



Fun times!
