Today seemed like the day for new stuff at Awaken – we got lots of packages in the mail and there’s much more to come. Here’s a quick look at what’s going on…

That’s right. This time last week, we didn’t have a building that was legal for assembly. Exactly 1 week later, we have a building that will work much better and be much more comfortable. We only have 11 days till our first service (yes, we’re still on for Saturday, September 19 at 6:30pm) and plenty of cleaning to do. No, the sign isn’t up yet, but it should look pretty similar to the photoshopped editions you’re looking at. We have a work day scheduled for this Thursday, September 10th from 9:00am-noon to start the cleaning, and of course there will be more after that. Let us know if you want to help. We’re stoked to see how God uses this building and glad that with just a couple minor touches, it measures up to fire code and satisfies the city’s zoning codes. That’s a nice change. There will be a map and more info posted shortly on the website on the when & where page.

Does your car/Bible/friend’s face need some style? We have just what the doctor ordered. Our new are you awake? decals just arrived today (thanks to and you’ll love them. Beginning this weekend at Riverfest, you’ll be able to grab a decal, submit a picture of it on your car to our Twitter, Facebook, or email, and you’ll win a prize (more details to come)! They’ll be available for free on a first come, first served basis, so make sure to swing by the Awaken Church table and grab one for your car! Once they’re gone, they’re gone.


We just got the posters for our first 2 books of the Bible that we’ll be studying. On Wednesday nights beginning September 23, we’ll be studying the book of Acts in a series called To the End of the Earth. On Saturdays beginning September 26, we’ll be studying Philippians in a series called To Live is Christ. Both books are powerful and have specific application to us as individuals and as a church. Can’t wait to dive in! Download the artwork and listen to past teachings on our teachings page.

Some other new stuff…
– a new pulpit (it broke during shipping, but we’ll have a new one by next week)
– new chairs (padded, even!)
– a nice projector and screen
– a nice Pearl drum kit donated by Calvary Chapel Rivergate (we just need a drummer)

I’m so stoked to get this thing off the ground and I really hope you’ll be a part of it. There will never be another first weekend of Awaken Church, so plan on being there Saturday, September 19…but don’t stop there – keep coming! In the mean time, join us for our last 2 weeks at the Edlers’ house on Wednesday nights. Grab a map here.
