Hamtramck is one of the most ethnically diverse cities I've been to. It originally started off as a Polish immigrant town but now as you ride down the street you'll see blacks, whites, Indian-Americans, Arab-Americans and a nice blend of people from various Eastern European countries (i.e. Bosnia & Armenia). And Real Church reaches out to all those people. Our church represents the community it surrounds. It's so cool to look around the sanctuary and see people of all types of skin colors praising Jesus. It's a nice reminder of how Heaven will be.
Night Light is our new coffee-house like service that meets on Saturday nights at 8 p.m. The atmosphere is pretty laid-back, there's original artwork on the walls and there's plenty of candles to give it a thought-provoking vibe.
Opening night went great! I had a table set-up for my Faith & Social Justice Meet-Up, which is basically me bringing Think Virtue! to life in an off-line kind of way. So if you live in Michigan and want to be part of the meet-up send me an email: solshine7[at]hotmail[dot]com - I'll keep you posted on our future meetings and events. I'd like to do a Faith & Social Justice Short Film Fest, a charity concert with various social conscious bands and a karaoke contest along with partnering with local churches in their ministries to the needy. And whatever else you can think of!
-Jesus (Matthew 5:14-16)
