September 19th, the Mission in Motion Team launched the first of what we hope will be many group projects reaching beyond the walls of the church and into our surrounding community. Church members and friends engaged in the successful destruct and new construct of a deck for our friend known lovingly as Jean the Baptist. Members engaged in a variety of ways. Those not doing the actual demolition took nails from the boards and stacked lumber while some measured, hammered, and built a new deck. Still others were engaged in providing and serving the team with lunch, snacks, and water. The fellowship was a side benefit as persons worked alongside one another.
Though Larry Drysdale and Deborah Wolfe are project coordinators, the Body of Christ presents the essential people power to perform such tasks as this as Gods hands and feet. Beginning and ending with devotion and prayer goes hand and hand with the awesome task of partnering with God.
