Sod Turning Event
With thanks and praise to our faithful and gracious God, we announce the beginning of a new and permanent dwelling for the Redeemer United Reformed Church of Lacombe! Close to four years after our first congregational meeting, and our inaugural worship service (April 21 and May 1, 2011, respectively), the construction has begun. In May of this year, the property on 46th Avenue was prepared and the foundations laid. At present, the walls are going up, and completion is expected by the Summer of 2016. Surely, God is good, and we are grateful for the monetary blessings He has given us, and for the generosity of His people, in enabling this project to go forward.
The new facility is planned to hold 300 people. Presently, we have a little over 190 members. So, as we build this physical place of worship, we pray that God will fill it with "living stones, being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 2:5). May the Lord be pleased to fill this building with many new members, from both the inside and the outside, as we reach out to our community with the Good News of salvation in God's Son. And may we, along with this building, "become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit" (Ephesians 2:22).
To Him be the glory alone, now and forever.
