Getting Ready for Dedication Sunday

Next Sunday is the time of our big celebration. We want to dedicate our new building to the God to whom it truly belongs.

When we planned the construction of the building, we looked forward to the time when all that would be left was to celebrate. We have finally reached that wonderful time of celebration and dedication to God.

Next weekend we will have only one service and no meeting of Connect Groups for our dedication day. We will meet on this special day of dedication at 10:30 AM for one service. We will conclude by noon. Please make every effort to attend this special time.

We plan to fill the building on this one special day in our history, and we don’t anticipate that we will be able to meet together in one service only again.

Here is how it will work: We will have a choir made up of our children, youth, adult choir, and senior adult choir. The adults will remain in our 100 seat choir loft. The children’s and youth choir will leave after their time of singing to go to our former worship center (Central Hall) as an overflow room. Preschoolers and K-3rd graders will be in their normal places during worship. We believe we will fill the building and have enough space to seat everyone.

We do know parking will be tight and we have a plan to provide adequate spaces. We are hopeful families will come in only one car 🙂 for this special occasion. We have invited our state and local civil authorities to join with the church in this special time. We want to follow the words of Christ as we pray for these leaders in hopes that we would be able to lead a quiet and peaceable life and to evangelize our community and our world with the truth of the gospel.

God has brought us so far and has blessed us so immensely. Let us have a special service of praise that will honor and glorify Him.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3: 20-21).
