Greetings in Christ to all. Again it has been a very long time since I have posted an update, and again I must apologize. The cyber-world unfortunantly gets placed on the back burner when the real world gets busy! It is hard to believe we are entering August already!
The renovations to Fellowship Hall are well underway. The rough wiring and the duct work has been done. Our first building inspection is imminent and then it is on to windows, insulation and drywall. Lots of hard work and dedication and money has been invested by a number of people. I would like to particularly thank Jack Coleman, Jonas Miller, and Steve Canapp for their herculean efforts in recent weeks. There are lots of other folks as well who have given of themselves in one way or another to move this project forward and they are all deeply appreciated. I can't wait to see the finished result!
Praise the Lord we now have two additional deacons; Jack Coleman and Jonas Miller joined Art Refford as CBCG deacons this past month. They are already proving to be a great asset to the body as they exercise their giftings. Jack is fully overseeing the renovation project and Jonas has been doing a lot of the behind the scenes work and various projects to maintain and improve the physical property of CBCG.
We just enjoyed a wonderful "Southern Style" family night over at Cherry Crest Farms. The Myers entertained us with some ole timey singin and we enjoyed "Colonel Deb's" Famous Fried Chicken!
It was a great time of fellowship and I feel sorry for those who were unable to attend. We are looking forward to returning to Cherry Crest on September 20th for our church picnic. We hope you will join us if you can.
Another HUGE event on the horizon is the return of the "WEAVER BELIEVER SURVIVAL REVIVAL" to CBCG. We will have another family night with them on September 6th at 5pm under the tent ! Last year we had close to 200 people from our church family,friends, and the community attend and we anticipate that it will be an even larger group this year!
My family and I are officially settled into our new home (less than two dozen boxes to unpack yet). We have also added a new member to the family- Dancer is a lovely little cockapoo puppy that we received from Tim and Ruth Kauffman about two weeks ago. She is very intelligent and is well on her way to being housetrained. Katie, Abbie and Sterling are enjoying her very much. She enjoys company like the rest of us so feel free to stop in and see her.
In closing I would like to urge you to continue to pray for us and for one another. Friends we live in perilous days and we can see the Lord's return approaching as prophesy is being fulfilled before our very eyes. Be sober, be vigilant, and be busy about His work. May the Lord bless and keep you all.
