The Lord always comes through for us according to His excellent timing and perfect will. When we experience the unforgettable, inexplicable, provision of God, our faith grows and we are prepared to serve one more moment, one more day, one more week, one more month, one more year in a difficult ministry.
Here at River City Church, we experienced God's provision in this way recently. So bear with me while I brag about our Lord for a minute!
Our original location was a great start for us but we needed some more space to adequately disciple our children and the cost of rent was preventing us from fulfilling the ministries to which we are called to complete. We began praying and asking the Lord to provide a new ministry center for us. After some time praying, another local Baptist church (Grandview Heights Baptist Church) agreed to allow us to share their facility with them. We pay much less each month and have much more space! Only the Lord could do that!
The GHBC folks welcomed us in with open arms. Their hospitality has been humbling and they provide a great example to us, as a church plant, of God's grace and provision through existing ministries. I still remember our first Sunday in the new location. I remember realizing what brothers and sisters before us had sacrificed to provide this location for us to use now. I wish I could thank them. Perhaps our best thank you will be the way we serve in the future.
Along with our new location comes a new logo and new worship times. Check these out! God is so good!
