Are you ready for a tour of a chapel house in Ammon, Idaho?
First the blueprints . . .
The new fellowship/educational wing is the northern wing.
Welcome to Berean Baptist Church
Out on the construction dirt mound, north of the church parking lot, I had a stare down with a hawk this morning.
Soon there were five of them flying overhead in the blue sky – powerful, majestic birds.
Opening the main front west entrance
Jessica painted the overhead picture. I had asked her to place these words as a theme for 2008: “Behold your God.”
main entrance - right wall
main entrance - left wall
We received that picture from Frontline Missions. It is a picture of a previous generation of Russian believers, having communion in the winter woods, away from the eye of persecuting Communist authorities. The man leading the worship is Georgi Vins.
Part of our prayer room
Church prayer meetings: Sundays – 8:45 am, 5:30 pm, Mondays – 9:00 am, Wednesdays – 9:00 am, Thursdays – 6:30 am
main chapel/auditorium for worship
I just took his picture, today. That is Ken Stowe – a great example of a biblical deacon. He is a gracious servant in our church family.
This will be our new fellowship/program/conference area.
A new door and serving window lead right into the kitchen. Do you see the ceiling sheetrock? We finished the lid today in this main room. Thank you to Gene A., Mike S., Mike’s brother – Jeff, Joshua W., Gary G., Dave M., Brad T., and Erik T. (And also, I thank Keith N., Erik T., Dave F., and Gene A. for working with me till 10 tonight hangin’ the rock in a classroom.)
A new classroom
the hallway separating four new classrooms
It is one of the greatest privileges of my life to be pastoring this church family in Ammon, Idaho.
Come visit with us sometime.
