If You Build It
“If you build it, they will come.” As we prepare to relocate to a new campus, we’ve heard this famous line from the movie Field of Dreams repeatedly because it’s the key quote from a great story – and we are made to love stories. As the curtain prepares to close on the Old Testament, the book of Nehemiah draws us into a powerful true story – the story of a man who leads returned Jewish exiles to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem under extraordinary circumstances.
But the book of Nehemiah is not just about a leader who masterfully accomplishes a difficult building project. Nehemiah’s story points back – to the promises God made to a people. And Nehemiah’s story points forward – to the restoration of a worshiping people and to the need for a Savior. In a similar way, The Church at Station Hill has a history that rests on the foundation of God’s Word…and future that’s focused on a mission to point people to a Savior.
