Phase 3 HOME STRETCH Tasks as of May 12, 2022

Wow… we’re getting close to the end now! Response to these posts has been quite poor in the last few months. I know we’re all getting tired. I’m reminded of one of things that Nehemiah faced when building the wall – Then Judah said, “The strength of the laborers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.” (Nehemiah 4:10 NKJV) I know we’re all tired and longing for this project to…

Christmas Time is Here!

Well… at least it will be this Saturday. Here at FBC we always hang the greens on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This year is no different. The building project impacts what we can do a bit, but we’re going to decorate as much as we can. Will you join us at 10AM on Saturday? We’ll have refreshments and plenty of coffee, as usual. We have 2 CIA projects going at the same time on Saturday, so some of those who…

Weekend Happenings – November 20-21

Saturday morning at 10:00AM, we will be assembling and delivering Thanksgiving baskets to some who need them. We need some to pack the boxes and we need some to deliver them. Please give of your morning and participate if at all possible. Just meet us in Fellowship Hall. ALSO, Saturday morning we need to empty the trailer (just has some chairs in it) and move the Operation Christmas Child boxes into it. If a few will volunteer for this task,…

Let’s Pack!

Amazingly, it’s already here! Time to pack the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, that is. You can join us this Saturday (November 13th) at 10:00 AM for our annual packing party. This year we have a goal of 600 boxes and if we get a good crowd of people, we’ll have that done in no time, and no doubt exceed the goal. Everything is provided, as you’ll see in the pictures below. All you need to do is come and grab…

Full Speed Ahead!

Concrete floors are poured… sewer and rough plumbing and rough electrical is done, inspected and approved… trusses are coming and the framers will be onsite on Monday the 22nd to set the trusses and get the roof completed. All glory to God! He has done (and continues to do) great things!

Thanksgiving Boxes for Those in Need

On Saturday, November 20th at 10 AM we will pack and deliver 15-20 Thanksgiving boxes for members of our congregation and community. If you would like to help, we need food donations. Take a look at this sheet, and if you can provide any of the items that are currently not covered, please bring those items to the church by November 14th. Notice that we need specific quantities of each item, so try and provide that quantity. And please stick…

More Sweat Equity Opportunity!

Calling able bodied men! We have a need for some high work. This Thursday, we need to do some cutting of the styrofoam where the trusses will attach. This will involve working about 18′ in the air. So I’m asking for help in two ways: Anybody have access to scaffolding which will allow us to reach that height? If so, please reply a.s.a.p. We will rent if need be. We need some men willing to climb that scaffolding and work…
