Beit Chesed Messianic Congregation (BCMC) has been in a rebuilding mode for the last few years. BCMC began as a Torah Study in the home of Max and Delores Tepper and grew to a small congregation incorporated in the state of MO on the 7th of July 2000.
Later BCMC was meeting for Shabbat services and Torah study at Dorsett Village Church. After losing a large percentage of membership, and in anticipation of more of the leadership moving out of state, the board of elders asked Pastor Jake Rosen (of Clayton Community Church) to begin teaching. He helped conduct services in that same location for well over a year. Max Tepper passed away and Jake Rosen was asked to lead BCMC. After some time it became apparent that the congregation would need to make profound changes in order to continue.
At a Passover Seder, in 2010, an invitation was extended to join in an effort to grow BCMC. The venue and format moved to a more informal Friday evening service. We began meeting at Clayton Community Church on April 30, 2010 and have maintained weekly Shabbat and Holidays Services, intending to grow BCMC into a mature, healthy, self-supporting congregation.
Presently, we partner with Clayton Community Church to reflect the concept of unity in the Body:
"May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Messiah Yeshua, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua..." (Ephesians 15:5-7) Lately we have services twice a month and holidays but as we grow in numbers and maturity we would like to add additional leadership since a plurality in the leadership is the model we find in the Bible. May the Lord use this congregation to His Glory.
