This weeks TcD ‘V’eekly Update includes:
An awesome story about years of prayer being answered, getting the groove of weekly worship gatherings, and my mustache.
We have two weekly worship gatherings in the books now, third one comes this Sunday! Meeting weekly is helping us to really feel more like a legitimate church as well as giving us great opportunity to invite the people in the city we’ve been meeting to come each week.
We shared Communion together this past Sunday for the first time! Awesome to celebrate the union of the body of believers in our church and our union with and in Christ!
Speaking of ordinances we have at least four people who will be baptized at our first Baptism service on August 30th.

Pray that the preaching of the Gospel, both on Sunday mornings and through the week would be clear and produce repentance in believers and salvation in unbelievers.
Pray that we would continue to meet and have opportunities to share our vision and the Gospel with “townies” here in DeKalb, building our membership foundation on the people who will continue to live here, not just students.
It’s awesome that we’re meeting weekly on Sunday’s now which has helped make us feel more like a single body, a church. Pray that as we continue we will develop, as a body, in maturity, love, and holiness.
Remember when Luke Skywalker took his first ride in the Millennium Falcon?
“What’s the flashing light?!?”
The flashing light in our case right now is our account balance! We missed our June goal by about $2000 and we’re set to miss our July goal of $5000 by even more than that.
We could still use about 20 people to be $40 a month supporters. But honestly we need some one time givers this month too. Any amount helps.
We need more bibles, we need funds for printing Sunday morning worship programs, we need money to print some flyers and cards to be passed out as we make a big push towards the end of August.
Giving can be done both through the website at http://www.reachingdekalb.net or by mailing checks to our sending church, Redeemer Fellowship at 1125 Oak Street St. Charles, IL 60174
Thank you for your partnership in the Gospel! Looking forward to sharing an awesome week of updates next week.
Grace and Peace,
