Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
And a great King above all gods,
In whose hand are the depths of the earth;
The peaks of the mountains are His also.
The sea is His, for it was He who made it;
And His hands formed the dry land.
Come let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture,
and the sheep of His hand."
On Sunday after our fellowship dinner, which was after church we went out to the land that the church has purchased. Lord willing we will be building a new church building there. We are very excited about it. The building we are currently in is small and also there are steps that the older people in the congregation are finding difficult. The new land is a few acres so there will be room for kids (and adults!) to play! God has really blessed! Another cool thing about the land is that it is close enough for us to bike ride there!
At the dedication on Sunday there was prayer, scripture reading and speaking. It was fun for many of us together to truly dedicate this land to God and to His work. We also buried a time capsule with papers that most of us had put in describing our commitment to God's work here.
