Of course it's been a trend for years to have churches remove denominational labels from their identity and church signs. But now Granger Community Church has chosen to remove the word "church" from their property. There building will now be called the Granger Commons. This decision comes as a result of a vision and strategy to help their people see their building as merely a "tool" for ministry rather than being the actual "church" itself. They want people to know and live out being a people on mission together, and not have their identity as the church be tied to simply a building.
Watch one of Granger’s pastors talk about this change:
What are your thoughts? Will this move help Granger's people see themselves as a missional people? Or do you think Granger's decision misses the point and will cause confusion?
