Continue to Pray for a Smooth Meridian Transition
On May 5, 2019, Sapulpa First Baptist Church will vote on releasing Meridian to operate as a self-governing, self-supporting, and self-propagating institution. It already operates as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and incorporated with the State of Oklahoma. It is the intention of Meridian to move to Oklahoma City where it was founded and where Ralph and Rosene Speas will also move. Ralph and Rosene decided to downsize and move back where they served for 21 years. They are asking Sapulpa FBC to allow Meridian to go with them. They are building a smaller house in Newcastle just 15 minutes from the Will Rogers World Airport making it more convenient for global trips. Also, they will be living about 45 minutes from their son, Jon, and his family.
