Radial Church March Update
We're so excited to give you the update on everything that has been going on at Radial lately! Since our last update we have been in a season that has both been exhausting and celebratory all at once. For which, we are so grateful for your support that you have offered in this time which has made such a fruitful season possible.
First, we praise God for the growth of our Faith Collectives! We have 4 groups meeting each week--including the bicycle collective--and a 5th group we are hoping to have launched at some point this spring. A couple of months ago, we met a new friend Louis that began showing up at one of our bike team's stops. As our friendship grew so did more honest conversations about what it meant to follow Jesus. Louis was cordial but "politely disagreed" with premise of following Jesus. Then, through nothing short of a miraculous chain of events, we bumped into Louis one night unexpectedly. Out of a place of deep brokenness he confided that his life was in shambles and needed God to piece it back together. That night as we talked and prayer with him Louis made a commitment in saying "yes" to following Jesus!
Last week also marked our kick-off service at The Martin Center which was fantastic! We had so many teams of folks that worked hard for weeks getting the facility ready to host our Radial gatherings and our first service was remarkable! We're aware that it may take time to adjust to the new every-other-week rhythm that we are now embarking on but are very excited for what God has already begun to do in this partnership! Our next corporate Night of Worship is this Sunday at 6:00. If you are in the NE Ohio area, we invite you to join us at The Martin Center (1253 3rd St. SE)!

Lastly, we cannot begin to share with you how excited we are that the Radial Worship EP: "We Are Alive" has been released! Our worship team worked very hard over the last 6 months writing songs that captured the stories of the victories that Jesus had been winning in our midst. After months of recording we unveiled the album at The Auricle two weeks ago for a celebratory evening worshiping and sharing these songs--some for the very first time. We were blown away by God's goodness in this whole process and want to continue to share these songs with you!
We're pleased to announce that the songs are available on both Spotify and iTunes. The iTunes address for the cd is: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/we-are-alive/id828974804 . As we did with our single "See You" that was released in the summer, lyrics and chord charts for the songs are available at radialchurch.com/worship . For those who want something more than a digital download, CD's of the album can also be ordered. In either case, we really are so grateful to be able to share these songs with each of you! Our hope is that you are drawn into the Lord's presence in worship. If you like what you hear, we ask that you in turn, talk it up and share it with your friends!
