When I was asked to write something about the proposed new building for the newsletter, I thought, what am I going to say? I’m not a finance person, or a designer, or an architect. What I am, though, is someone who really loves God and cares about the ministry of this church. And I believe this new building can help us reach more people and better serve the Lord.
I have been a member of this church since 1984. I raised my sons in this church. For over six years I served on the staff as Youth Director. I have participated in a wide variety of ways. My experiences here have helped me grow in my service to God. I feel it is important to pass His Love on to others. This new building will make more things possible for us.
Currently, I sing in the choir. We have a membership of 36. As you can already see we’ve had to increase the choir loft in the sanctuary. While this will help us during worship, we’ve had to give up our less than ample storage and dressing space. Having a rehearsal area in another location would alleviate some of those problems. A new building would enable us to store our music and robes, allow us the space to develop and build a youth and children’s choir, in addition to giving us a place to rehearse, thus freeing up the sanctuary for other activities.
A fellowship building will make it possible for us to reach out into the community. We will be able to make the many ministries we already have even better. Our shelter to the homeless will benefit greatly by the new bathrooms with showers. Those same showers will also be much appreciated by visiting youth groups. I could go on and on, but I’m limited by space. So, please feel free talk to me or anybody on the Building Committee about this proposed endeavor. I am excited about it!
