Sunday February 20th we were able to attend the AM Building Dedication Services. Dennis Tapp is the pastor of First Baptist Church. He has provided excellent leadership in taking the congregation through a building program, and it has resulted in a beautiful and very functional facility for First Baptist Church. They are to be commended for their vision and work to make this building a reality
Carole was able to assist in the music for the services. I preached for the AM Service, challenging the congregation to be a “spiritual house” from I Peter 2. Following the AM Service the church provided a delicious pot luck dinner for all in attendance. At 2:00 PM the church hosted their official dedication service with a number of visitors attending despite an ongoing Winter storm. Carole and I were unable to attend the afternoon service due to a previous commitment for the evening service.
While a church building is not the church, yet functional buildings are essential for our ministries. Praise the Lord for an excellent tool for the First Baptist Church to expand their ministry. We rejoice with them.
