A busy book table after church is always encouraging!
My friend and pastor of Iglesia Gracia Soberana de Gaithersburg, Joselo Mercado, e-mailed recently with this good report about the church. (Gracia Soberana is the Spanish-speaking church that meets in the Events Center here at Covenant Life at 4 p.m. on Sundays):
Just wanted to take a couple of minutes to share the grace that we have been encountering. It is still amazing to think that we are less than five months old. By the way the church is interacting and the grace we are experiencing, it feels like we have been together for a longer time. Several quick testimonies of God’s kindness:
Over 100 people have been attending in recent weeks, and we have a group of 10 or so coming regularly who were un-churched before coming here.
A single who was discouraged about church due to trials in his former church ?is experiencing grace and growth in his life since coming to IGSG.
A mother and her 18-year-old son who live in a nearby community have been coming for the past five ?weeks. A ?member of Covenant Life who lives in the same house they do communicated with them using signs (due to the language barrier). This is part of the amazing blessing that it is for us to partner with Covenant Life.
So, thank you for your partnership! The Events Center is serving us so well. Your generosity and care for us has much to do with the grace we are enjoying. By the way, if people want to reach out to Spanish-speaking friends, they can stop by Covenant Life’s Welcome Center on Sundays and pick up invitations to IGSG.
