A lot has happened since we started demolition and construction in November and we would like to update you on the progress of all that has taken place. As part of the new footings for the church, our staff and elders have selected some scripture verses to embed into the concrete foundation to show our desire to build our church based on the foundation of God's word!
Please continue to keep our Building Completion Faith Journey in prayer as we ask for the Lord's presence to guide us and for His protection over all the construction workers and consultants everyday. Thank you for your continued prayers and faithful giving towards this building project so that God's name will be honored and glorified in our community, in our city, and in our world!
God bless and have a very Merry Christmas everyone!
In His love,
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11
You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” 1 Peter 2:5-6
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. Ephesians 2:19-22
How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young – a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Psalm 84:1-4
“But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
"Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You're going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You're going to take over whole nations. You're going to resettle abandoned cities. Don't be afraid—you're not going to be embarrassed. Don't hold back—you're not going to come up short.” Isaiah 54:2-4 (The Message)
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last – and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.” John 15:16
“As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
“My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Mark 11:17
“Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.” 2 Chronicles 7:15-16
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105
Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in him and he shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
