Ephesians 3:20 & 21 – “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
God is still doing immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, just ask the people of Grace Community Church in New Ulm. God gave them a wonderful tool to continue the mission He called them to do, a church building for $1.00. That is right – for a buck. They had been faithfully ministering using a rented office space and the New Ulm community center for worship services when the pastor and leaders at the New Ulm United Church of Christ contacted them last year. They shared that the church was closing at the end of 2021 and that they wanted to be faithful stewards of the trust that God had given them to do God’s work, so they would like to give them their building for $1.00. Several weeks later they called and said they had an issue with the closing of the building, we have money that has to be used on the building. How do you want us to fix up the building and property? Yes, God is doing immeasurable more than we can ask or imagine! On February 20th, we dedicate the Grace Church Building as a tool and a trust to advance the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in New Ulm and beyond.
