Ministry Update from Bill
Greetings everyone. Blessings to all of you and your family for a great weekend and happy Shavuot.
Our Shabbat celebration will be this Saturday (June 8, 2019) at 2 PM. Once again, we are meeting at the Dwelling Place on Urbane Rd. in Cleveland, TN. 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.
Special note: We will also be observing Shavuot this weekend. Instead of our typical Q & A session after Oneg, we will conduct a special service in observance of Shavuot (Pentecost). Make sure to come prepared to stay for this special time.
All the details are available at https://billcloud.com/itinerary/.
We Signed A Lease!
Just a few days ago, we signed a 12 month lease for a space in Cleveland for our congregation to call “home” – at least for a year. We are excited about the possibilities now that we know where we will be meeting on a somewhat permanent basis and, at the same time, challenged by what lies ahead. We had a very hard time finding something that was adequate, affordable and not in a sad state of disrepair. Real estate for congregational purposes is hard to find in this area for some strange reason.
That being said, we are content with the situation the LORD has led us to. The owners are believers and had been praying about securing the right tenants. They seem genuinely excited that our group will be leasing the space. This development does not come without challenges and certain obstacles that we must overcome. Our seating space will be somewhat limited (compared to what we have enjoyed at Dwelling Place) and we will have to raise money to purchase equipment that the folks at Dwelling Place have allowed us to use while renting their facility.
For instance, we will need to raise about $5000 for a PA system that is adequate for the space and that will accommodate the LiveStream. We will need to raise about $4000 to purchase pieces of equipment for the LiveStream itself in order not to diminish the quality we presently have. There are other projects that will require financing as well as some muscle and sweat. We do have some equipment that would allow us to move in immediately but we would severely limited in the quality of presentation, 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. 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.
We will be sharing more information with you in the coming days about our meeting place and other related news. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.
