A Place of His presence
“In the four Sundays that I have attended The Dwelling, this is how I would summarize The Dwelling:
The Dwelling creates a safe and welcoming space for others to make room and encounter God, in ways that seem unfathomable. It is a space of humility, hope, compassion, and kindness. It is a space of love, laughter, and hugs. It is a space of worship, teaching, praying, and growing. It is a space of support, accountability, and honesty. It is a space of healing, forgiveness, rest, and renewal. Most of all, it is a space that is illuminated by God’s presence and spirit from the moment you walk in.
The Dwelling church has vividly and radically changed my life. When I was first given the offer to come to The Dwelling, I was close to saying, "No", as I was exhausted of going through the motions and seeking but never finding God’s presence within the church. However, it was not long before I found Him in The Dwelling. I told my friend yesterday I have never experienced excitement to attend a church or would get butterflies when I thought about God. Church was never the highlight of my week. However, with The Dwelling, that is simply not the case. I think that's one of the best parts of my experience with The Dwelling. In addition, that hunger to learn and serve God, began to fill me too.
I would like to thank you and The Dwelling Team for creating an experience like this for other people. I am amazed to witness a church of individuals that create this environment for others to also encounter God, the way I have. Finally, thank you for demonstrating what it means to live your faith, rather than just to have faith. I have never seen a group of individuals do it so well, as I have with The Dwelling.” - Karlee
