Grace Bible Church will begin service after a 2-year delay
The Grace Bible Bible Church in Bemidji, Minnesota, is scheduled to begin services at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
The church’s pastor, John E. Ritchie, said in a statement that he was “grateful” for the outpouring of support for the church, but that the church’s plan to open on time was not an easy one.
The new service will take place on the third floor of the historic Bemida Hotel.
“It’s been a long road to get here,” Ritchie said.
“But with God’s blessing, we’re on our way to our new home.”
The Grace Church’s pastor said in the statement that the new service would begin at 10:30 a.minutia and will be held in the old Bemidek Hall in the church hall.
The ceremony will be conducted by a minister from a local congregation, according to the statement.
The Grace Baptist Church in Southfield, Michigan, will also begin services on Saturday morning.
The congregation will be led by the Rev. George D. Withers, who has served as the pastor of the church since 2015.
Wethers will lead a congregation of about 1,000 members.
Wirss is the pastor for the Grace Baptist Fellowship, a group of Christian ministers who have been in the community for nearly two decades.
Wirths, a former church president, said the church will begin services in the former Bemidas Hall, the first building in Bremen that has served for more than a century.
The service will be performed by a pastor from the Grace Fellowship, who will be leading a congregation in the historic church hall, Witherss said.
The chapel, which has been used as a meeting house since 1954, will serve as a place of worship.
The Bemido Hall, which was formerly a home for the St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church, will be used as the church site for the new church, which will be open from 1 to 5 p.m., according to a news release.
The newly opened church is expected to bring in a large number of people and bring a new spirit to the community, according the release.
Wintras’ new church is scheduled for opening on June 10.
