Thank you to Joe Hilty, Mary Crosswhite, and the host of helpers who planned, set up, and cleaned up after the celebration at the Vansant Road location. The food was great, the program brief, and the fellowship encouraging. It is very Baptist that our first usage of the new building was for a meal together. Thanks again to all who made it possible.
It is appropriate that our first fellowship meal in the new building was a celebration of the progress of the capital stewardship campaign, through which we are giving to fund the project. Your current contributions are postponing the need to borrow money from the bank, which is very important. Now we are receiving the full value of every dollar given. When we begin borrowing, the interest has the effect of reducing the value of the dollar toward the project. Thank you for your faithful financial support of the project; each and every dollar makes a difference at this point. Indeed we can see The New Horizon.
The “I Am A Church Member” series has reminded me how much I enjoy you. I am fortunate to be your pastor. “Be Royal” next Sunday, dress accordingly.
