These are exciting days. As many of you already know, we are moving into a time of discussion and prayer about a potential merger with First Baptist Church, Missouri City. If you’ve been around Redeemer for a little while, you’ll know that this possibility has been on our hearts and in our prayers for several years now. Recently FBC decided to move forward with the conversation and we’ve had one meeting together (the first of many) to discuss the possibility of merging our two churches into one. We want to let you know that this will be a process involving much discussion, prayer and deliberation.
As we begin these discussions about a potential merger, we do have an important announcement to make that will have an immediate impact on our meeting location. First Baptist Church has graciously invited us to begin worshiping in their main sanctuary, located at the entrance of the campus, beginning this Sunday, August 28th. As was announced last Sunday, we will continue to meet in the Family Life Center for Sunday school, and our fellowship lunch following our time of worship. Our worship time will remain the same, beginning at 10:40am.
So, let me ask you to be prepared to be flexible and ready for a few changes in our normal routine over the next few weeks. Small changes will occur as we discover the most efficient ways to transition back and forth and as we work out all of the details that go along with a new worship location. We greatly appreciate your patience and help. Please continue to pray for God’s leading in our discussions about the potential opportunity to merge with FBC. We are so thankful for the opportunity to minister in this community, with this group of Christ followers. What a privilege!
