An Update from Generations Church...

From Pastor Sol Rexius
Life and ministry in Eugene is going well and we wanted to give you all an update on the exciting things happening with Generations Church!
Over the summer, we have been meeting and spending time with local people who are interested in the vision and plans for Generations Church. At the end of August, we asked this group of people to join our “Launch Team” which is the group of people that will help us launch Generations Church. In September, the Launch Team (about 60 of us) began gathering on Sunday mornings for worship, prayer, teaching, and volunteer training. We are so thankful for the people God has brought to us to partner in this work of reaching Eugene!
This past Sunday with the help of our Launch Team!) we had our first public church service at the Graduate Hotel in Eugene, which will be our long term gathering sport, Lord willing. It was a great morning and there were over 200 people there. We will have one of these preview services every month this fall and then officially launch our weekly services on January 21st, 2024. I included some photos below, and if you’re interested, you can listen to the sermon here.
Sunday mornings aren’t the only thing we are launching here in Eugene. 2 weeks ago, we had our first college gathering on the University of Oregon campus, and we had over 150 in attendance. The Salt Company team is doing an amazing job and we are all so thankful to be used by God to reach the next generation. They are hosting the first ever "Beach Retreat" in 2 weeks on the Oregon Coast, so pray for good weather and great memories!
On a personal level, I am learning that church planting is hard work, and there is a ton of spiritual need here in Eugene. A quote I’ve been reminding myself of a lot recently is this: “Eugene is bigger than me, but God is bigger than Eugene.” Please keep us in your prayers and ask God to do big things in Eugene!
Thank you for your ongoing support of Generations Church! Go Ducks!
