Muskego's 10th church may prove that there's always a need to provide opportunities and alternatives to worship, as about 100 people turned out for a preview service of Lakepoint Church at Muskego High School on Sunday.
Pastor Brian Hofmeister led the worship and encouraged those present to continue to offer the invitation over the coming days to "those people who wouldn't seem likely to be interested," as he felt it's generally the people who have fallen away from traditional worship that are waiting for an invitation.
The hour-long service was followed up by a social gathering in the hall, where church members could answer questions and get to know the people who attended.
Jeremy Keil of Muskego has been "looking around" at churches, and found the service to be positive and welcoming. "I will be coming back again next Sunday with my family," he said.
Hofmeister said that the goal is "not to fill the gym, but to give people the opportunity to become part of a journey that ultimately brings them to see Jesus in everyday life."
The official opening of Lakepoint is 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7 in the auxilliary gym (Woods Road entrance) at Muskego High School.
