New Building Progress – 08/29/15

The photos below were taken by Mike Lamb on August 29, 2015. You can see that most of our foundation block is in place (except where the Bobcat needed to bring gravel in) and they have most of the PVC plumbing in place along with many loads of pea gravel.

Thanks to the workers and members of the Waynesville church of Christ who are working so hard on this project! As always, please keep us in your prayers while we work to grow physically!

Thanks to Cody Cain for a photo too. He and I also had photos to share, but I liked Mike’s for this post.

Spiritual Family

One of the songs we enjoy singing during worship (and during the day) has the words “we’re part of the family, that been born again…”. There is nothing more securing that to have a tightly knit family, this is just as true in the church. In a place where we need to help encourage one another to stay strong and be courageous, the church needs security and protection.

Abe’s lessons below talk about some of the work that Joshua had regarding Israel. Part of the plan was to establish cities of refuge, and to take care of the Levites. Today the church has a City of refuge we look for, and like the work Joshua had, the church works to take care of fellow Christians!

“For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:9-11 NKJV)

I thought this passage did a good job to remind us of some spiritual things that coincide with our new building project. Indeed, what we are working to do, another will one day build on it, just as we have built on the work that others started years ago. Truth for a building, a congregation, or a life. Start with Christ, and all will stand straight and sure!

Thanks to Mike, Pam, and Nick who are just outside the photos above (click to see larger images). The footer and reinforcement bars have been set, and block work will be starting in the next few days.

Please keep us in your prayers that all goes according to plans, and that we are careful with funds.
