感谢神的带领，在4月26日教会订了一间栈房以后改装成一个聚会点。也在7月27日签了买卖合约。 这建筑物是现今教会在经济上可以负担的。建筑将在2018年中完成。它座落在Palmers Road 与 Peaks Road ， Truganina 交界北西角的地方. 整个计划是一个商业发展地区，有医药诊所，托儿所，商店和添油站。附近将会有许多住宅区。离开现在我们聚会的地点大概是15分钟的车程。
箴言 3:9 -10 你要以财物和一切初熟的土产尊荣耶和华。 这样，你的仓房必充满有余；你的酒 有新酒盈溢。
也请大家在祷告中为我们祷告 – 为在西区传福音的工作，购买产业,市政府的批准和教会的会众属灵生命的长进。
PURCHASE OF CHURCH PROPERTY
Praise and thanks be to our God who lead us to make a deposit for a warehouse type of building on April 26, 2016 and signed the sale contract on July 27, 2016. This is the only building we can afford at the moment. This building is scheduled to complete on early 2018. It is sitting at the north western junction of Palmers Road and Leakes Road, Truganina. It is part of a commercial project comprising of medical centre, child care centre, retail shops and a petrol station. Surrounding areas are new developing residential areas. It is about 15 minutes drive from our current worship place.
Our first phase budget is $340,000. Todate, we are still short by $150,000 and need to raise it by end of 2017. The church has already start getting the members to pledge for this fund. We also ask members to lend us interest free loans. The pledge can be paid in one lump sum or pay by installments. If we can get 40 people to participate, each will only need to donate $5,000 which is really not a big sum.
Pro 3:9-10 Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.
We sincerely hope that everyone will participate in this project and help the church to have our own building, so God’s kingdom can be expanded in western regions of Melbourne and we be the light and salt in this region. Glory be unto our Lord ! Amen.
Please pray with us – for the gospel extension in Melbourne west region, our purchase of building，council approval and the growth of spiritual life of all members.
