We've all had the experience of walking into a grocery store and asking "Can you tell me where to find the baking soda (or honey or taco shells)?" And the answer was something like "Oh, that's on Aisle 2 (or 5 or 8)."
Isn't that what people are asking about life? "Can you tell me where to find meaning... real life... forgiveness....?" Most of us spend a lot of time in the junk food aisles. But the good food, the healthy food, is what we really need. "Aisle 7" represents the place where Jesus provides food from heaven. He is the bread of life. He gives us water that eternally satisfies. And when we invite people to our fellowship, we are inviting them to come to Jesus to receive the bread and water that alone can satisfy. Why the number 7? Seven is the biblical number of completion. In Jesus, our lives are made complete.

The folks who received the vision for Aisle 7 knew that God wanted to do something special here in Verona. He called them to wrestle with what a 24/7 faith community would look like. After months of prayer, reading God's Word, and seeking God's vision they determined that Aisle 7 would:
1) Focus on the commandments: Love God with all our being; and love our neighbors as ourselves.
2) Emphasize a trusting, simple faith in Jesus
3) Worship in facilities that are multi-purpose and open to all people
