The Dove Story

On November 6, 2006 at 2:30 pm, our church family raised its new steeple over our new church building. At 4:30 pm on this same day a pure white dove descended out of the heavens and lighted upon our church building. This special visitor sent to us by God is a wonderful confirmation of God’s blessing upon our ministry.

On the evening prior to this spectacular event our pastor preached a message about “the sound of a going” (2 Sam 5:24) and in his closing prayer, he prayed for a moving of the Holy Spirit upon the church.

Can this dove be a sign that God has answered our pastor’s prayer?

We believe that this beautiful white dove lighting upon our church on this special steeple raising day was no coincidence.

Can this dove be a sign that God is “well pleased”?

After 6 long months of very hard work in constructing our new church building, we would like to believe that this was indeed God’s way of saying, “Well done thou good and faithful servants.”

Our church is ready and now the gospel message must sound forth!

This special messenger has brought hope under his wings.

Hope that God will do a great work in our church.

In the Power of the Holy Spirit our church will move forward in reaching our community with the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.

Listen to the sermon “A Message in the Wings of a Dove” delivered by Pastor Ruemenapp on November 8, 2006:

On The Wings Of A Dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove

When troubles surround us, When evils come
The body grows weak, The spirit grows numb
When these things beset us, He doesn’t forget us
He sends down His love
On the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove

When Jesus went down To the river that day
He was baptized In the usual way
And when it was done, God blessed his son
He sent him his love
On the wings of dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove

When Noah had drifted On the flood many days
He searched for land In various ways
Troubles, he had some, But wasn’t forgotten
He sent him His love
On the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove
