Special Meeting in Sedalia, MO on Sunday Nov. 6

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: .

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!

Fall Fellowship Camp Updates

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:!Au3cVAc8GTpegf4eKJNSV3UQteoDag  These are pleasant memories!

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: Each video also has a link in its Youtube description for downloading the audio file (mp3), allowing you to transfer sermons to an electronic device, etc.

Fall Fellowship Camp - Registration NOW OPEN

We extend a warm invitation to our brothers and sisters from near and far to join us for a special weekend this fall.
  • When: September 15-18, 2016, Thursday evening through Sunday lunch.
  • Where: Turkey Hill Ranch Bible Camp, a campground facility located in the Ozark foothills between Jefferson City and Rolla, Missouri. 
  • What: 
    • Fellowship.  Saints will have abundant, relaxed opportunities to meet one another and share in the things of Christ.  We look forward to renewing old friendships, beginning new ones, and strengthening bonds between Gospel-centered churches.  1Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another, and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
    • Worship.  We'll have the joy of praising our glorious Lord with a diverse mix of fellow believers, experiencing, we hope, a sweet taste of "heaven on earth".  Psalm 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.
    • Preaching.  We'll be encouraged and challenged by sound Biblical teaching from a variety of gifted speakers.  Ephesians 4:11-12 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;
    • Refreshment.  All who attend, including the children, should enjoy a pleasant vacation experience in a beautiful natural setting.  Mark 6:31 And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.)
  • Who: Whoever wishes to seek the Lord and fellowship with His people.
  • Why: For the glory of God and the advancement of Christ's kingdom.
