“We felt called to step out in faith to be a part of the vision of more intentionally bringing Jesus to South Bismarck.” Andy and Kara Speidel live in Bismarck, North Dakota, with their two kids, Jack and Charlie.
They attend Missio Church, one of two church plants to come out of Century Baptist in the last five years. “Missio’s slogan is ‘Love Jesus. Live sent.’ This requires relationships with people,” said Andy.
They knew they wanted to be intentional in their relationships, especially in their neighborhood, so they started something new.
“In the summer and fall, we’ve started hosting outdoor movie nights in our backyard,” he said. “We borrow an inflatable screen, a projector, and speakers from Missio and have a party. It’s made it easy for us to connect with our neighbors and build relationships with other families whose paths cross ours routinely, and it also gives us an opportunity to show hospitality.”
One of the byproducts of these movie nights . . .
