I just returned from the “soft launch” of our new Unplugged Venue at the Portage Street Campus of RiverTree. The teams did an amazing job of transforming some second floor space into an area that looks and feels like you’re walking into a Panera Bread Cafe.

This Easter Sunday Unplugged will be open to allow more people to worship and hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. We’re able to seat 120+ people at round bistro tables in each service. The music will be accoustic and the message shown on several BIG HD tvs. The coffee bar in the corner will serve coffee from one of my favorite hangouts–Muggswigz. The entire environment is designed to facilitate relational connecting and interactive learning.

I LOVE being part of a church that is willing to take risks and do whatever it takes to bring more people into the presence of Jesus!
