Ministry Update from Bill
Shalom everyone. I hope these first few days of summer are going well for you and your family. We’re definitely feeling the heat here in southeast Tennessee. Its been a few weeks since I updated everyone on what’s going on – which is a lot – and so I wanted to make you aware of a few things that are happening now as well as what’s coming up.
First of all, our next Shabbat celebration will be this Saturday (June 29, 2019) at 2 PM. Once again, we are meeting at the Dwelling Place on Urbane Rd. in Cleveland, TN. Details are at www.billcloud.com. We will also be meeting at Dwelling Place on July 6. Make sure to tell your neighbor and, everyone who can, please come join us. As usual, we will be live streaming for those who can’t be with us in person. We hope that you’ll join us for worship and fellowship.
All the details are available at https://billcloud.com/itinerary/.
In the next few weeks we hope to begin post-production on several new teachings. We have already filmed volumes 2, 3, & 4 of our In the Beginning series as well as a full length teaching entitled, In The Footsteps of Abraham. As we finish these projects we will post them in the Premium section at www.billcloud.com so be looking for these throughout the summer.
Update On The Fellowship
In case you missed the news, we recently signed a one-year lease on a meeting space for our new congregation and are hoping to move in by mid July. Currently, we are in the midst of painting and other cosmetic upgrades. Chairs, the sound system and stage lighting have been obtained (thanks to all of you who made that possible) and other projects will begin soon. We still have a few more major purchases to make in order to get things the way we would like them to be for our first meeting, particularly where the LiveStream is concerned. Please help us pray about these matters and, if you are so inclined, consider helping the congregation financially, especially if you are enjoying the LiveStream.
Also, we have consulted with a CPA and have filed the necessary paperwork to become a recognized congregation that will be known as Jacob’s Tent. It has always been our intention that, as soon as was prudent, we would separate the congregation from Shoreshim Ministries. We expect that to happen, officially, in the next few weeks but, for now, the congregation is operating under the auspices of Shoreshim Ministries. Consequently, anyone who wishes to help us obtain the necessary equipment for the congregation should do so through Shoreshim Ministries. You can do this online at www.billcloud.com/donate/ (write “congregation” in the message section) or you can text to give at (615) 823-8827. You may also mail a contribution to Shoreshim Ministries at 114 Stuart Rd. PMB 431, Cleveland, TN 37312. Thank you for your consideration as we move forward.
One last thought on this matter: Shoreshim Ministries will continue on as we have for the last twenty years. I will still be producing teaching resources for our website and webstore as well as making blog posts each day. The only thing that has changed is that I will not be traveling as extensively as I have in the past. So, please, continue praying for us at Shoreshim and, as the LORD leads you, continue supporting Shoreshim.
As I’ve said before, Beth and I deeply appreciate all of you who contact us to offer your words of encouragement. I wish there was time to answer everyone and, maybe, one day there will be. Until that time, though, please know that we thank God for each of you who pray for us and who think enough of what we are doing to help us continue doing it.
Blessings and Shalom,
