They were here 3 years ago. And that was awesome. I remember the preparing of the building for the first time when Men On A Mission arrived in May of 2014. The spaces were open and ready after removing all the old stuff.
By the end of that week there were walls. Those walls were everywhere. The children’s area had rooms. The gym and bathrooms took shape. The worship area had life and walls and even more of the stage. This team took us in 4 days from 0 to 60 in record time.
3 years later we have come a very long way and have filled in lots of the gaps between the times that Men On a Mission was here then and now. There are some huge pieces that this team is set to accomplish this coming week. Some of these will make is look different. Some of these will make it so much stronger.
Will you pray for the team? Pray for safety and great work conditions. Will you come work with us? Yes, I will be working some. If you live close by and have some time and are a man, you can come help. Come on out.
The skylights are coming out, and there are lots and lots of those. The roof is being strengthened. The ceiling is getting some awesome insulation. These pieces of insulation will make the place look way different and to help hold the temperature at the right spot. There are some walls that will get insulation. The front entry wall of the church is going to be built, and this is one of my favorite pieces that I cannot wait to see (a couple pieces of this need to come together just right).
So, why am I telling you more of the happenings for the coming week as Men On a Mission team will be working on our future campus? I am telling you this because this is so awesome, but remember the church is really not about the building.
The building is a tool to reach more people with the love of God. We will be able to go further, serve more and seek to help people open their eyes to see Jesus. I can see it. You need to see it!
1 Corinthians 9:22 NASB
To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.
Meet people where they are. Meet their needs and win the right to talk about the love of God.
Acts 2:43-45 NASB
Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need.
