For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Treasuring Christ Together
TCT is our ongoing strategy to fulfill our mission through a multiplying movement of campuses, new churches, and a Global Diaconate, united by a common mission and founded on a common biblical life and doctrine.
Campusing Update, September 2011
South Campus Property Update
The Elders, along with the South Site Selection Team, have decided not to proceed with the purchase of the Jurel Way property in Lakeville.
Due to factors like the steep pitch of the land, the city’s requirement to build a road through part of the land, and the presence of wetlands that had to be avoided, Jurel Way’s remaining useable space would have required constructing a more expensive two-story building and left no room for future expansion.
We’re thankful to God for answering our prayers regarding the unsuitability of this site, and we now ask you to join in prayer with the South Site Selection Team in quickly discovering the better location he has had for us all along.
Pray that ...
- We will unite and draw us together as we seek to provide a campus to reach more people for Christ in the south metro area.
- We would patiently wait for God’s direction and be reminded of the grace and mercy he has showered on Bethlehem for 140 years.
- The South Site Selection Team will soon discover the location that God has for our South Campus.
