During the last few months Kathleen and I have come to appreciate what the Apostle Paul experienced as recorded in Acts 16: 6-10. In these verses we read of Paul’s two missionary trips where he invested time, travel and effort in order to plant new churches, only to have the Lord close both doors and send him to Europe.
As far as we know from scripture, God never told Paul why he let him first take those two trips. We cannot adequately answer why God permitted this to happen the way it did. We only know that a Sovereign God worked within His providence. Because of God’s redirecting, the Gospel went into Macedonia, into Greece, Italy, Spain, on up through Europe into Britain, and finally it reached the shores of America. Praise the Lord !
As you know, Kathleen and I invested time, travel and effort considering several new geographical areas to plant the next church. God closed doors and has made it clear that He is not through with us here in Greenwood.
On Sunday, July 15th, we will be holding the first worship service for Village Bible Church. We will be meeting at the Indiana Wesleyan Building located at the Greenwood/Rt. 65 Exit. The facilities are wonderful. New….high tech….spacious….lots of parking !
The service will begin at 10:00 a..m. Nursery and children’s ministry will be offered during worship. We invite you to visit this site often as we keep everyone up-to –date on what God is doing.
