Work is completed and the gym is currently cycling through it's first year of service. A special thanks goes out to all who assisted from construction to electrical, doors and the unloading of trucks. We saved a lot by giving of our time and talent. Now comes the phase which can seem to drag on forever if we don't stay committed to the project ... Payment of our loans. All said and done that will apprach the $70,000 mark ($31,000 in construction loan, $12,000 from the school and $26,000 from the church). Stewardship is going to be key and not just in relationship to our gym project but also for our mortgage and the regular church budget. Those three loans pull at already tight purse stings and the faster we replenish what was removed the quicker other needs can be addressed. The goal is to be completely debt free again as a congregation sooner than later and that means taking a long hard look at personal finances and asking how you personally can help in that endeavor. Then pray! The lord of the Church listens to our prayers and responds in ways we can't even imagine. With His help we can move mountains!
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. (Malachi 3:10)
