We are in exciting times at Pine Park Baptist Church. For the last two years we have been in a building program for a completely new facility. God has been blessing our church with growth and we desperately need the added space and upgraded facilities. An additional blessing is that we will be debt-free when we move in.
We are nearing the end of the project and hope to be in the new building within a month. The feelings of anticipation are running higher than a six-year-old on Christmas Eve.
Here is my prayer request. Throughout this project, God has blessed us with an incredible spirit of unity. While we have had some varying opinions (a healthy thing) on different aspects of the project, the church has been unified in its purpose for this building. As we near the completion, please pray that we will stay focused upon Christ. We realize that this building is only a means to an end. The real church is people and we must not forsake our passion for God’s kingdom work because of material things.
This whole process has been a time of spiritual growth for our people (including their pastor). I will post more soon on how God has worked during this time. I pray that this building will not cause us to become complacent, but will only stoke the fires of our desire to reach our community for Christ.
Thank you for your prayers.
