New Sunday Meeting Location

The Redeeming Grace Church Sunday meeting location will be changing, effective this Sunday, August 9.  After several years of meeting in homes for Sunday worship, we will begin meeting on Sundays at 4115 South Providence, in a newer red building between Rock Bridge High School and Angelo's restaurant.

This meeting space is currently leased by Veterans United and is decorated in a lively military theme.  The VU folks have a desire to see the Gospel advanced and have been exceptionally generous in allowing us to use their facility on Sundays. 

As usual we'll plan to begin the meeting at 10:00am and have a fellowship meal together afterwards.  The building will be open at 9:00am, and we'll need some helpers to arrive early to arrange chairs and tables, maybe do some clean-up, etc. (If the setup goes quickly, we'll have some time to pray together before the meeting begins.) 

Regarding the mealtime, the kitchen facilities are limited to a partially-available refrigerator, a small microwave, and a coffee machine.  There is no kitchen sink.  It would be most convenient to bring foods that are simple to handle and do not require re-heating.  Crock-pots would work well. 

Our Tuesday Bible Study and Thursday Prayer Meeting will continue to be held in members homes.

The Lord continues to show His kindness toward our church.  I'm amazed at the many ways that He has answered prayer in our first years together, and I look expectantly forward to what He has planned for us in the future.  He is pleased to work through weak and needy instruments so that His glory might be more clearly displayed.

Jesus Wept

In the 5th sermon from Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead in John 11 we focus on two questions:

1) Why was Jesus weeping?
2) What does it mean for us that He wept?
