MOSCOW – On May 30, the first service of the New Testament Church in Moscow was held in its own building at 13A, Odesskaya Str. Two months ago a missionary team from Perm came to Moscow to plant a new church. There are already more than 50 people in it.
The church is grateful to all who have supported prayerfully and financially the purchase of the 3-story brick building (1 290 sq. m.).
The service at the new location was joyful for all, although it was held according to the usual routine. Elisey Malkov, a missionary from Perm, began the service with prayer. Timur Tavabilov, a member of the One Year for Jesus Youth team from Perm, shared a word on giving.
David Grabovenko, youth pastor of the New Testament Church of Perm, delivered a sermon.
“God wants to use us, but expects us to be available to Him, ready to hear His call and respond” — the main thought of his sermon.
Nina Bubnova, a missionary from Perm, led the Sunday school class for five kids. At the end of the service the church prayed for the Perm One Year for Jesus Youth team — they are going on a missionary trip to Kamchatka. When the service was over, there was a tour of the building for all who wanted to see it.
Head Bishop Eduard Grabovenko, lead pastor of the New Testament Church, recently shared in his Instagram account about the purchase of this building for the church in Moscow. He thanked everyone who helped with prayers and finances. Speaking of the importance of the ministry in Moscow, he stressed that the capital cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg have a great need for the Word of God to be spread.
