Building Project: All the Photos are in Chronological Order starting at the bottom and going to the top! To view the progress in order, please scroll down the bottom of the page and work your way upwards!
For years we had a vision to build a new church. In 2007,God provided us a beautiful piece of land that is just over three acres and located only 1/4 of mile up the road to build a new church on. We know God has had his hand on this project thus far, and we have faith he will continue to provide. We have slowly been working on the church and we are paying as we go. Check back periodically to see pictures of the progress. God spoke to Brother Wade in a dream after the land was purchased and the ground was broken. In that dream Bro. Wade saw a house that was torn down. As he was looking at the broken house, his brother-in-law, Ralph Totten, came up behind him and told him "The second house will be greater than the first!" We as a church have clung on to those prophetic words. Haggai 2:9 states, "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts:"
All the pictures below that you see are of the things we have done so far. It is important for you to know that all that you see has already been paid for! We are not a church full of rich people, but the people of this church and the community have banded together to raise money and to work towards this goal. We have had many fund raisers, food sales, festivals, and donations over the years. It is our hope that we can soon finish it without borrowing a penny. God has provided on every step of the way, and we feel like he is going to keep on providing in his time. Most of the work done on this church was not performed by experienced carpenters. In fact only Brother Wade, and a few others were experienced carpenters. The rest of the men were willing to learn, and through the help of Bro. Wade, and a few others, they trained the men to new jobs. We have passed every inspection to date! God has been GOOD!!!!
"And they said, Let us rise up and build. So theystrengthened their hands for this good work." (Nehemiah 2:18)
