What’s Next, Church?
On May 20 the church voted overwhelmingly to move forward with the land swap between the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (www.UMHB.edu) and First Baptist Belton. Many have asked, “What is next?”
During these summer months, final details will be worked out between the church and the university. Our architects are working on drawings to help us imagine the possibilities of how we may want to design the new site.
Plans are being made for a Faithful God Faithful Future pledge campaign. We will ask the church family to make a monetary commitment payable over five years. Some have asked if they can begin to give now. The answer is yes. In fact, through last Sunday several people have already given over $26,000. You can give on The City (fbcbelton.onthecity.org) or you can write a check with Faithful God Faithful Future (FGFF) in the memo line.
Is that all? NO! Vacation Bible School begins Monday. Our first international mission trip (of twelve during the summer) departed for Moldova this morning. We are moving forward in our church plant, Renewal Church in receiving money for the start-up and praying about who will go with Matthew to begin the work.
There will be camps for youth and children this summer. The 47th Annual God and Country Concert will take place on Sunday, July 1. Meanwhile, we continue to gather for worship and Bible study each Sunday. That’s where I hope to see you this Lord’s Day.
Please continue to pray! Remember: We cannot do all of this, but God can!
