New African church in the Netherlands

This update is from GCI-Netherlands national leader Frans Danenberg.

We recently held a joyful inaugural service at Jesus Grace Church—an African GCI congregation planted in Koog aan de Zaan in the northern part of the Netherlands. Visitors from Rotterdam, Hoorn, Tiel, Almere, Leeuwarden and even Norway, joined in the celebration, which included music and inspiring messages. To begin with, the new church will meet twice a month as it moves forward in faith to spread the gospel, helping people know Jesus Christ. We appreciate your prayers for the further development and growth of this new church. Here are pictures from the first service:

    It is fantastic to hear about God’s recent powerful missionary work in the Netherlands and we are certainly thankful and privileged to have been denominationally involved in some of these exciting developments. I wonder what will be next…

    God for us, in us and through us.

    What a very encouraging, out-of-the-box development! Delighted to see this happening. The heart of God is always to reach out to his children, so this looks like the Spirit went out to find people feeling a little lost in a foreign land and connect them to the total connected-ness of the Triune God! Soli Deo Gloria.
