Renovation progress

The building renovation project at First Central Bible Church in Chicopee, MA, is progressing on schedule. The stage floor in the sanctuary received its first coat of stain last night. The baptistery is in place and will be plumbed shortly. The lower fellowship hall has been drywalled. We’re making progress.

 
 

Bridge of Flowers – Summer 2018

On Monday afternoon, Carol & I took a drive around western MA. One of our stops was in Shelburne Falls to walk the Bridge of Flowers. We had been there in the Spring of 2015 and wanted to see what was new and different. Beautiful, creative landscaping. God’s palette of colors was on display.

Farewell, Mittens

This morning, Carol and I said “Goodbye” to our beloved cat, Mittens. She came to my mom in 2003 as a kitten. When mom passed away in 2005, we joked that Mittens was part of “the estate.” We had her for the past 13 years. She traveled up & down the west coast twice and cross country once. Once small enough to fit in a bathroom sink, she grew into a large cat. She even made her appearance in the annual family Christmas photo. Though much loved, she declined physically in the past month to where we had to make the difficult decision to say “Goodbye.” Mittens was much loved and will be much missed.

evandalism

Sunday evening, we gathered in the sanctuary of First Central Bible Church for a pre-dedication worship event. Each person was given a Sharpie marker and permission to write on the floors. As Jack coined the phrase, we gave folks permission to do “evandalism.” We wrote verses related to our ministry and the names of people we want to see come to Christ through our ministry. During the latter phase of our renovation, all the wood will be covered with carpet. In one sense, we embedded the spiritual DNA into the floor of our sanctuary. After sharing the verses and names, we closed with a time of prayer for the different ministries and people we hoped to reach with the gospel. It was a significant time of worship.
