John 14:1-3 - “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also."

In this sermon from John 13 we take a look at Jesus' necessary departure. We specifically look at the reason why Jesus went away, the great difficulty of Jesus going away, and the certainty of a future reunion with Him.

This coming Sunday, Nov. 6, we're planning to hold our morning worship service in Sedalia, MO in a joint meeting with the believers at Hwy M. Chapel. Hwy M Chapel has been like a sister church in the start-up of Redeeming Grace -- providing counsel, mentoring, and much faithful prayer during these early years.
The meeting will start at 10:00am, the same as we're used to, but note that Daylight Savings Time ends that morning, so our clocks will be "falling back" one hour. The meeting format will be pretty similar to ours. The plan is for *both* Clint Leiter, the Hwy M pastor, and me to speak -- giving (hopefully!) shorter sermons than usual. There will be a "pot providence" lunch immediately after the meeting, so we'll need to bring some food to contribute to that.
The address is 1480 Hwy M, Sedalia, MO 65301. The directions I prefer from Columbia are: west on I-70, then south (left) on Hwy 5 at Booneville, then west (right) on Hwy 50, then south (left) on Hwy M (also called Harding Ave.) at the eastern edge of Sedalia. The Chapel is just 700 feet south of Hwy 50. The trip takes about 75 minutes. Here's a link to a Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/
Events like this are valuable in broadening our circles of fellowship and increasing our appreciation for the Kingdom of Christ beyond our local church. Hopefully nearly all of us will be able to participate!

First, based on the Lord's wonderful kindness to us at the Camp in September 2016 and the extremely encouraging feedback we've received from attendees, we *are* planning to host the Camp again next year, Lord willing. We've reserved the Turkey Hill facility for Thursday, October 12 - Sunday, October 15, 2017. We thought the later dates would reduce the risk of hot weather making sleeping uncomfortable. We tentatively expect registration for the 2017 Camp to officially open around February 1st.
Secondly, here's a video, prepared by Carissa Pentimone, with images from the 2016 Camp: https://1drv.ms/v/s!

Thirdly, James Jennings has posted high quality video and audio of the six sermons given at the 2016 Camp. The entire YouTube playlist is here: https://www.youtube.com/
