We are very pleased with how the sanctuary renovation is moving forward. Each day reveals more change and builds greater excitement. But this week has been particularly special to me. As the seating is being installed, I can’t help but think of all the people who will be in this room to worship God. I can only pray that the future of FBC builds upon what God has been doing for the past 24 years. For this room has been the site of many special occasions: baby dedications, baptisms, weddings, funerals, and various celebrations. In this room people have been saved, marriages have been healed, children have been restored, and men and women have been called into full time Christian service. In this room, mission teams have been prayed over and sent across the world to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. And beyond all the special events that occur, the impact of weekly worship cannot be measured.
When all is said and done, this project is about the people who will meet with God in our sanctuary. As you are faithful to pray for our construction project, remember to pray for the people who need the Lord. As you are faithful to give financially to the completion of the work, remember to invite people to come with you to worship each week. As you look forward to entering into the beautiful space God has given us, remember to prepare for your eternal home that will far outshine anything created on this earth.
We are indeed blessed; God has shown his favor to FBC of Jonesboro. To see more pictures of the renovation, go to our church website at www.fbcjonesboro.com and look at “reaching generations.”
