In the last post I filled you in on a big decision that’s in front of our little congregation. It has to do with purchasing property and buildings for Narnia Elementary School, which is an outreach ministry of our congregation. Today we had our business meeting and I’m encouraged by the results.
The Results Are In!
We’ve just gotten back from the meeting and, as for the results, the congregation voted unanimously to make an offer for the purchase of all or part of the campus. This is great news for two reasons. First the school can move forward with its ministry. Secondly, and more importantly, the whole congregation is on board with this ministry. That’s the most exciting news. The conversation as the meeting was not always peaceful but in the end every single person voted for at least some variation of an offer. In the past, the school has been a point of contention in our congregation and I’m hopeful that we can move on toward healing and greater unity.
Thank you for your prayers because we felt them during the meeting.
Please keep praying for this ministry. We still have a lot ahead of us. We need to negotiate a favorable price with the city, and of course, we’ll then need to come up with the finances. These are definitely God sized plans so we’re going to need God sized help. There’s no way our little congregation of 70 can handle such a big project on its own.
