What a joy to look around on Sunday mornings and see that God is drawing people to FBC in unprecedented numbers. When many churches are dying, and when alarming numbers of people have written off church as an irrelevant institution, FBC is thriving—alive! God has uniquely positioned us in the capital area to reach the unchurched and the seeking, and to disciple the growing believer.
Sadly, our building has become a hindrance to our health as a church. There’s no room to worship, no room to park, no room for our growing children’s and youth programs, no room to offer community events or even to have a church supper together. We are frustrated to see visitors walk away because they cannot find space to comfortably worship with their families.
As a temporary solution, we’ve moved worship services to the local high school. But it’s not home. We need a facility that can be a tool for ministry, but not a monkey wrench. We need a home that enables us to strengthen our congregation and to serve our community. . . . To have a here-and-now impact and an eternal impact on our world.
My goal—my dream for FBC Hallowell—is a permanent home where we can be a force for good. Home for Good. Will you join me?
