In January 2019 we kicked off the year with a series called 'BIG Prayers / little prayers'. As a part of the series we talked about Red Tree's Vision and what we were praying to see God do in the next 5 years. We are praying to see God... 1. Give us a permanent home 2. Allow us to plant a church just like people helped us plant Red Tree 3. Allow us to send out a missionary from within Red Tree 4. See hundreds of lives changed by Jesus God answers prayers!!! God is on the move!!! This fall we began a series 'Follow You Anywhere'. In the series we saw how God does not often lead us how, when or where we think He is going to. We began 2019 worshiping in recliners at B&B Theaters while we were pursuing His leadership looking at retail space, a church building and a firehouse for a permanent home. This fall God led us back to Wentzville Middle School where we had launched as we continued to pursue His leading. Out of nowhere God brought to us the possibility of merging with New Melle Baptist Church just 7 miles from Wentzville South Middle School. After several months of prayer, meetings, open houses, and Q&A's both churches voted on the merger on March 22 in an overwhelming fashion. God answered our prayers in greater ways than we could have ever imagined!!! Not only in giving us a home, but He has united us with 20 absolutely incredible people with tremendous hearts and passion to honor God, love people and make the biggest difference we can in our community and the world. We are now beginning the process of taking the steps to merge the churches legally and how to move forward as ONE CHURCH as God's Body and God's Family striving to fulfill God's Mission. We are so excited for what is doing, has done and is going to do!!!
