When Holy Apostles was called to build a larger building three years ago, the small communion wondered how this could be accomplished. The economy has been terrible, congregants have less money to give due to hours cut at work or losing employment. But with God’s grace, there is security in building the new building.
With much prayer, encouragement from the International Church, and support from Holy Apostle’s congregation, the foundation has been dug. Money has been coming in with pledges and donations. Not only is the foundation built on firm ground, but the financial ground is firm as well.
The building the church currently meets in holds 70 people with walls bursting at the seams, but the new building will be able to hold 100 people comfortably with some breathing room for more.
Space is what’s needed. If the church is to grow, there must be room for growth. In the years of hoping the building would be built, Craig Bates the Patriarch of the ICCEC said, “If you don’t build it, they won’t come.”
Sunday February 24th, the Holy Apostles congregation will gather around the foundation of the new building kicking off the capital campaign and dedication blessing/celebration.
It has been a long three years of prayer and preparation. Holy Apostles is filled with great joy to have a new, bigger building to see God’s kingdom grow, impact the culture around them, and bring people to Jesus Christ.
