Bible Study and Church Plant | Update
Surrey Bible Study & Church Plant
As an outreach of Free Grace Baptist Church (FGBC) in Chilliwack, BC it is our desire to see another Reformed Baptist witness commence in the BC Lower Mainland, west of the Fraser Valley. To that end, in September 2016 the first Surrey Reformed Baptist Bible Study took place in a private home in South Surrey, led by Pastor Jim Butler. As was broadcast at the time, “this Bible study represents the first step in an initiative to plant a Reformed Baptist church in this general area.”
On June 20, 2017 the first public Reformed Baptist Bible Study commenced in South Surrey, representing another significant phase as the Church Plant continues to advance in the will of the Lord. Our Tuesday night Bible Study, 7:30pm, takes place at Rosemary Heights Elementary School, 15516 36 Ave, Surrey, BC V3Z 0J5.
Mike Kirkpatrick, a recent seminary graduate of the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies (IRBS) at Westminster Seminary California, has begun leading the Bible studies and helping prepare additional aspects of the Church Plant under the guidance of the Pastors and Deacons at FGBC.
In the will of the Lord, our plan is that the Surrey Bible Study will move to Sunday services in early 2018 forming the commencement of a new Reformed Baptist Church in the area. The prayer is that this work will provide wide-spread access to a new Reformed Baptist church nearer the surrounding areas of Langley, Surrey, Delta, Richmond, Greater Vancouver and south of the border in Washington State. South Surrey has been chosen as the location for this initiative due to its excellent proximity to many such communities all being within manageable driving distance.
You’re invited! As the ground work continues to grow and advance for a Church Plant in the Surrey area, would you consider joining us at the next Tuesday night Reformed Baptist Bible Study? We’d love to see you! To view a map of the manageable driving distances from various locations to Rosemary Heights Elementary School, please click here.
