Providence Church is a new church being planted by Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, FL. Since the fall of 2008, families from eastern Lee county have been meeting with the pastors of Grace to pray and plan a new gospel-centered church in this area. In April 2009, Shawn Bergen and family joined Grace Baptist as pastor of church planting to lead the efforts in establishing Providence Church. On March 31, 2010, Providence held its first public meeting at the Buckingham Community Center called TwoFour. These meetings included a time for worship, prayer, and biblical instruction in regards to the start of Providence Church. In May 2010, Jared Longshore and his family was sent out from Summit Church in Estero, Florida to join in the planting of Providence Church in Lehigh Acres. On October 3rd 2010, Providence Church launched its first official service at Varsity Lakes Middle School. We look forward to all that God will do for his name and the good of his people.
