UC Moves to Sunday Nights

Posted: February 22, 2009 in Uncategorized

You read it right.  UpRising Church will be leaving the YMCA location and moving to space provided to us at Bellevue Grace Assembly, beginning this coming Sunday, March 1.  And the move will include us changing our service time to Sunday evenings.


Why not?

Truthfully, we simply couldn’t afford the rental costs at the YMCA any longer, especially in a tough economy where our church – like many others – have been hit pretty hard.  

And get this.  Bellevue Grace Assembly Church GRACIOUSLY offered their worship space to us for FREE.  That’s right.  FREE. BGA Pastor David Crawford and wife, DeAnna, told us they believed in the vision for the UC and felt led to help us.  Pastor David and the elders at his church said “come on over”.  So that’s what we are going to do, beginning next Sunday, March 1.

In addition, the two storage units we were renting will no longer be necessary.  Why?  Because BGA also has storage space for us to use.  And again, for FREE.

Why would another church do that?  Maybe because we are all tired of distractions, including financial ones, getting in the way of what God has in mind for His church.  The pastor and congregation at BGA wanted us to know that they were ready to join us in tearing down the denominational walls created by man.

And just in the nick of time, God opened the door with Bellevue Grace for us to share worship space.  You see, they do not use their building on Sunday nights .  And we have some terrific equipment that we are more than willing to share with them. It’s going to be a great relationship, all in the name of reaching for for Jesus in the Bellevue community and beyond.

So, if you’ve been wondering whazzup at the UC?  Well, now’s your chance to check us out.  Join us, won’t you?   Sunday, March 1 at 6:30pm at Bellevue Grace Assembly, Hwy 70S.

We couldn’t be more excited as God leads us.  Join us in prayer as we move in this brand new direction!   

Now, what about you?  What do you think about meeting on Sunday nights?
