becoming a reality (our new campus)

Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

One week from now a team of experts will be in our town for one specific purpose, and they will work as a team to accomplish more together than they can do alone.  The planning for their trip has been happening for sometime.  But it is becoming a reality.

Between 60 and 80 skilled carpenters will come to our new campus and begin the process of framing much of the children’s area and sanctuary.  I am so excited.  This has been in the works for a long time, and what we are about to experience is going to impact lives for years to come and help people come to meet Jesus.

The property that used to be “American Standard Building Systems” was purchased by The Community Fellowship last May for significantly less than what the property is worth.  That is one of the first miracles we saw.  Since that time we have been cleaning and preparing, but now is the time to take a step of faith and begin building.

Will you join me as we prepare for the mission team to come to today?

Pray for the team’s safety.  They will travel to Henry County from several different states.  They will be working to frame out classrooms, hallways and our sanctuary. Pray for their safety.

Pray for the resources.  There are many things that have to come together.  This was where houses were built, and now this will be a place where needs are met, lives are built and people find Jesus.  We need building materials, workers, money to use for construction as well as for continuing ministry.

Give to make this all happen.  Please consider giving to The Community’s vision fund to help our new campus become a reality.  Go to this website (, click Vision Fund and give your best gift.  You can also mail your gift to The Community’s Vision Fund at PO Box 388, Collinsville, VA 24078.  We need approximately $40,000 more dollars to get through this first stage of the building process.  Thank you for your help.

Finally, pray for the vision of our church to continue to grow, get stronger and be able to help more people in our community and beyond.  Meeting needs and demonstrating the love of God to our community is what God has told us to do.  There are many people who are hungry, hunting and homeless that need us to be prepared to serve.  Growing makes this even more of a reality.

We’ve helped thousands of people in the past, and the future is full of even more people who will be served and whose lives will be changed.  This is not about one church serving and sharing.  This is about churches partnering together to impact people for Jesus.  Please share our story with others and join us in telling people how good our God is!

So on October 2 the wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun.

Acts 4:13  NLT
The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures.  They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.
