Last Sunday was the last meeting held at Beever Street. This Sunday, 6th June 2010, was the first meeting held in the new building on Market Street.
It was the anniversary of D-day in 1944, and it was certainly D-day for the church! After years of dreaming, praying, hoping, fasting, giving, waiting and working, Goldthorpe Pentecostal Community Church opened a new chapter in the story of God’s work in Goldthorpe.
The morning’s sermon was from Hebrews 12:1-3, looking at the race set before us, with a reminder that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses cheering us on and that we have a great example in Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.
This evening’s sermon was from Genesis 26, looking at the topic of wells and reminding us that whilst we drink from the wells dug by our forefathers, we need to dig our own wells and move on in God, understanding that our arrival in a new building is not the end of the story. There is still much to be done!
And, like last week, we closed the meeting with a photograph of all those present for the archives :
