We have land... and a sign!

So this happened recently...we celebrated and dedicated the land we bought at 95th & Louise Avenue! 

Property Dedication Prayer
October 21, 2018 · First Baptist Church, Sioux Falls

Almighty and Eternal God, Lord over this ground on which we now stand – we thank you for providing us with this land to use for your kingdom. We eagerly look forward to the relationships to be formed, worship to take place, knowledge to be gained, and lives to be transformed at this place. But we acknowledge that it is not our church to grow or building to build. Your Word tells us that unless you, O Lord, are the builder, those who build it labor in vain.

You have called us to plant and water seeds of life in the community around us. You have called us to be the hands and feet of your body. We are dependent and eager for your leadership! Be the God of this land and the buildings, as well as the lives of those who will one day occupy them. Use this land to advance your kingdom. Empower us with your Spirit to be good stewards of the resources you’ve given us to make a difference in this community – for your glory and honor.

Let this property be a ministry tool to help us press on in our mission to love you and love other. May you, our God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, always be honored and praised on this land and through us your church. In Jesus’ name, amen.
