2019 Builders for Christ
June 7 - June 15
The Builders for Christ will be helping Fellowship Baptist (a Southern Baptist church) in Cheney Washington. This is a completely new build and it’s a large project.
Fellowship was started about 30 years ago and has outgrown its current space, which is about a mile from the build site. The site has an old motel on it which will be demolished March 9th. Then grading, footings and slab preparations will begin. Our responsibility will be to start framing.
The cost is $175.00 PLUS airfare. The church members will host us.
There will be a meeting on Saturday, March 9th at 7:00 pm at Lakewood in the Fellowship Hall. If you decide to go on the trip, please be prepared to make a $75.00 nonrefundable deposit at the meeting.

2016 Builders for Christ in Arkansas June 3-11 2016
June 19 - 27 2015 Gillette, Wyoming
The construction project will be the expansion of the Worship space and we will be following a team from Birmingham, Alabama that will have the framing and main structure up by the time of our arrival. Faith Community Baptist Church was started in a fire house 14 years ago by Mark and Kathy Largent who are cattle ranchers just outside of Kaycee, Wyoming where Katie and I lived while serving in Wyoming. Mark continues to pastor the Church there that continues to grow in spite of the fact that Kaycee is 135 miles one way from Gillette. Between his ranch and his church Mark Largent has plenty to keep him busy and I can’t imagine a man more deserving of all the support we can send his way. You don’t have to be a builder to go and there are always plenty of things to do for everyone around the project. We call it a Builders For Christ trip but it is really a wonderful revival camouflaged as a building project. If you’ve never been there is no time like the present. If you have been you know the truth of what a blessing it is for those who have prayed for help as well as those whom God has selected to be His answer.
In 2013, Bennington Vermont was the site of work done in June by volunteers of Builders for Christ from the Chattahoochee Valley area. Five members of Lakewood were a part of this team effort to transform the third and fourth floors of Grace Christian School into the Northeastern Baptist College. Builders for Christ plans an annual mission project each summer. Last year the work was done in Wyoming.
