building and church progress

18/02/2024 13:25

God is helping us to progress on our building and is also progressing our church. On the church front, we have a man taking up and new responsability weekly at church. This is a wonderful blessing. We also had a family revisit this past Wednesday night. That was encouraging. We've also had a steady stream of visitors this year. Door to door went really well and we hope to see some whom we meet out for a service in the near future. We'll see what God does there.

We are currently filling, sanding and painting at church. We made some good progress this past week and hope to be able to keep the momentum going. Please pray for wisdom as I schedule the carpeting for approx. 3 weeks from now. After that, we'll take delivery of our piano and be close to finishing the sanctuary. Please also pray for wisdom as to when God wants us to order our church chairs. I have to nail down some unknowns before we make that decision.

God gave us a great day. We had very good attednance without any visitors. We enjoyed a good time in the Word of God as we looked at Ecclesiology in Sunday School and studied Acts 12 in the morning service. My message from that text (Peter's deliverance from prison) was on, "When God Answers Prayer." Praise God for the power of corporate prayer. Sadly, those prayer meetings could be the least attended meetings in our churches. I wonder if we know what we are missing?

Lord wiling, internet will be installed at our church tomorrow. Later this year, we hope to be back to livestreaming some of our church services. We've been unable to do this for the past 2 years. Please pray for wisdoom as a sound engineer helps us plan our sound system and technology. Thank you for your prayers which avail much!
