The Son is Still Shining

English: Sundial Bridge By: Nathan Soliz Locat...

Wow! It’s really been a month since I last posted here. Life certainly has gotten busy. Well, along with my pastoral duties, I am now working a full-time construction job plus school has started too (I’m finishing my Master’s degree in Divinity at AW Tozer Seminary).

So, what has happened over the last month? Simple answer: a lot. We are now actively looking for a new building for the church. We found one that we really like that will be ours full-time; compared to only renting a space for a few hours and having to set up and take down every week. The price is only a little more than another building we looked at that would only be ours to use for one day of the week. The building is in downtown Redding and is an indoor office building. It’s nearly perfect.

There is a coffee shop next door and many people will be walking by it. This will give our church great exposure. But, there are two downsides, maybe three.

  1. There is no kitchen. There is a sink in one of the offices but no oven or fridge. We won’t be able to have lunch at church anymore.
  2. We will need to buy chairs, tables, desks, and more. We already have all of our sound equipment which is a plus. We will need to raise funds for that.
  3. It only seats 100 people, so we will have to move again once we outgrow it.

Another observation I have about Redding is the people always seem to be in a good mood. I think it may be from the sun always shinning. There are hardly ever any clouds in the sky and it’s only rained twice since we moved here almost 4 months ago.

I would like to go into more detail and write more for you but I just don’t have the time now. (I have to finish getting ready for work). Hopefully I can start writing my Scripture based blogs again soon. Until then may God bless you.
