Work Groups are a Blessing!



Wow, have we been busy around here the last few weeks! We have two major projects that we are working on across our property. First, we are completing a major structural repair and re-roofing of our Girls Dorm and Welcome Center. These are the original buildings that were here when we moved to this property in 1972, and are in desperate need of the work we are completing.  Secondly, we have a few very old staff cottages that are falling apart beyond repair. We are currently in the process of demolishing and rebuilding them. These projects are huge and we could have never done it without groups like Buckeye Baptist Builders, Church Building Ministries Inc, Gethsemane Baptist Temple, the Edwards Family, the Toth Family, the Wiendel family, Dockside Roofing, and Kforce. These groups have been a tremendous blessing!

In just a few short weeks, these volunteers have torn off the old Girl’s Dorm and Welcome Center roofs, rebuilt them merging the two roofs into one, and installed the new roof. It looks great and we are so thrilled to get this way project finished just before the rainy season starts! These same volunteers also tore down the old staff houses, and built a brand new one! They covered all of the details including: concrete, framing, plumbing, electrical, trim, floors, and the list goes on! We simply could not accomplish all of this without these amazing and talented work groups. Your talent and servant’s heart is deeply appreciated and such a blessing! Thank you for your love for the children!

If you are interested in bringing a work group to our campus for a project, please contact Matt Higgins.

Provide Easter Outfits for the Children

EasterEaster is coming quickly, and in the past, the children have enjoyed going shopping to purchase new Easter outfits. As you can imagine, with over 70 children, the cost can be quite high! We usually rely on gift cards that are received for Christmas to help with the cost, but unfortunately this year we received fewer gift cards than usual and will not have enough for Easter outfits. If you would like to be a blessing to the children, donate now so the children are able to go shopping again this year.  The children are so proud to be able to wear a new outfit like all the other children in church.  We know they will greatly appreciate anything you do for them.

Thank you so much for being a blessing to the children!
