Reflecting on the past decade of our ministry here, we are filled with gratitude for the Lord’s faithfulness. Through seasons of both joy and challenge, His grace has guided us, renewing our hope, keeping our focus on the kingdom, transforming lives, strengthening marriages, and propelling us in advancing God’s good news. We rejoice also in the growth in new believers added to our flock, regular visitors and the overall growth in numbers.

With growth comes exciting opportunities, but also challenges that we humbly ask for your support in addressing. Our current space limitations restrict our ability to run multiple ministries simultaneously. While we enjoy utilizing our outdoor space during the summer months, the colder and wetter weather makes gathering outdoors impractical. The solution identified is for mobile container classrooms, it aligns perfectly with our current church property, providing a swift and efficient setup without the delays associated with traditional building projects.

These classrooms will serve a variety of purposes, including Vacation Bible School in partnership with Grace Community Church – California, during the winter school break. Sunday school classes, as well as a prayer meeting and counselling rooms.

Our typical winter Sunday means we can’t use the hall as the band practices for the service and makes it hard to hear one another. The church hall is also used for fellowship after to keep from the elements, but this is when the teens have their meeting, so we try corner in different parts and whisper -which is very hard for our joyful body.

As we continue our community outreach efforts, we give thanks to our faithful Father who continually provides for the needs of His church, to the praise of His glorious grace.

This is the container structure that will be placed on the left side of the church house and will be divided into two classrooms with separate entrances. The floor space will comfortably accommodate chairs and even small Sunday School tables.Upon sourcing quotations from various suppliers, we think the overall cost would be 10 000USD. This will also cover the preparation of the land for where the structure will be placed, as well electrical fittings in the classroom. Please prayerful consider in helping and praying for the Lord to provide.

Thanks to a generous donation of books from our sister church, Antioch and Chapel Library, we have launched a book ministry that offers books, gospel tracts and other resources for the spiritual enrichment of the body. Our vision is to expand into a bookstore that also carries out translation work to reach the entire Soweto community with true and sound resources of the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. Please join us in prayer as we plan prepare and trust in the Lord.

Our church’s discipleship program has begun, and it is precisely what is needed during this season of growth for us. Members have been paired up to study through fundamental theology, to help encourage maturity in faith and rootedness in sound doctrine. Please pray for abundant growth as we focus on making disciples.

We are so delighted to have Nicholas, our new intern here with us from Kenya. He is enrolled at Christ Seminary and hungry to grow in knowledge to be a faithful teacher of God’s word. Please pray for him as he settles and studies.
