At Gallery Church, it is our goal to both live quietly and to walk properly before outsiders (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12) and to boldly proclaim the hope found in the gospel Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:28).
We recently shared through a blog post a short account of our church being asked to no longer meet at Hill Country Barbecue Market. Additionally, we have shared this story with three different radio shows. We shared our story so people would know how they can pray for our church, and how they can support our church financially during a time of need.
We enjoy friendships with the individuals who work at Hill Country Barbecue Market and appreciate their willingness to host our church for the season they did. We had a month-to-month lease with the restaurant, which they chose to not renew. Some of the news reports have used the term “eviction” – this was not our term, nor is it the best description of their decision. Though this saddened us, we understood and respected their decision. We’ve also been saddened by the hateful and hostile things that have been written about this restaurant as a response to hearing our story. Please join us, Gallery Church in responding with neighborly love and grace toward our friends at Hill Country Barbecue Market. We look forward to continuing our friendships, finding tangible ways to bless our neighbors, and will continue to eat at Hill Country Barbecue Market.
Pray that God will give us wisdom as we move forward sharing His love with our city.
Sincerely in Christ,
Freddy T. Wyatt
