The Pathway - Connect Acts 2:42-47
We are making progress!!
HELPING HANDS ARE NEEDED!
SOUTH ENTRANCE PORCH is finally cleaned off! Pastor Doug has been tirelessly working to remove the layers of adhesive left behind by previous installations of carpet. We hope to use a non-slip coating to seal and protect the cement steps and porch.
COURTYARD DRAINAGE is working well! The fellas trenched and graveled and piped and laid plastic and finished the window wells with well caps. The gutter need a little adjusting, but water is no longer collecting in a children's classroom window well! Thanks Cliff Buchner for being the brains behind the engineering.
BASEMENT ACCESS AND FURNACE ROOM is coming along. A new blower motor and PCM board has been installed in the gym HVAC unit, a new doorway has been created and the original one has been bricked up and sealed up with tar. More work to be done to fill the stairwell and slope the ground away from the building to shed water. Thanks to the guys who have lent a hand on this project.
CARPET TIME INSTALL - Having so many projects on the docket, its been difficult to get to the installation of the carpet tile in the gym/community room. When the time is right, will you give a hand in getting the task done? Please contact Mike Wilson, Elder, or Rusty Wellman, Deacon of Buildings and Grounds ministry. They will need at least 2 teams of at least 3 people/team to effectively get adhesive and tiles down. Look for this to be happening some time towards the end of this month!
We always need BUILDING FUND donations! If you'd like to give a special gift towards the fund, that can be accomplished via giving on-line using our Faithlife Giving button, by check, cash or even dropping off bars of gold! (sheets of plywood are pretty valuable, too!)
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
THE PATHWAY - Next message in the series will focus on, "CONNECT." I'll continue to share about the Disciple Making Pathway for New Horizons Church. It's a simple way to understand what Jesus modeled for us throughout his ministry - DISCOVER / CONNECT / GROW / MULTIPLY. Each week we will unpack an aspect of the pathway and see how the Lord modeled exactly what he wants us to be about to complete the mission he started!
You and I were formed to be a part of a family. We were brought in to relationship with God in Christ and need to experience the life of the body in relation to one another. To connect in meaningful relationship is to begin to walk the disciplemaking journey of becoming multiplying disciples who make disciples.
Looking forward to unpacking the need to connect!
