Riverview’s Motion Church celebrates anniversary

RIVERVIEW - With a year under its belt and a new location, Motion Church is ready to impact the Big Bend area of Riverview. The Rev. Aaron Lewis is excited about a recent move to East Bay High School from a small meeting space at Embassy Suites in Brandon. The congregation feels the new location is where it belongs. “Our goal is to dominate the Big Bend area with the gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Lewis. “We look forward to growing spiritually and numerically.” Meeting Sundays at 10:30 a.m., the church’s ministries include children and youth, care and Bible 101.
“We worship Jesus in a real, relevant way that connects with daily life,” Lewis said. “That's why we go all out with our services and with everything we do.” With the congregation growing from a few to nearly 200 in one year, worship pastor John Redgrave has no doubt God is at work. “We used to be a church where people were more reserved with worship. I would sing and they would stand there,” said Redgrave. “Now people are feeling more comfortable with worship to clap, even raise their hands. It is our hope that we remain a church for imperfect people who seek to have a relationship with a perfect and loving God.” For information on Motion Church, visit www.motionchurch.org.
