After seeing Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Moundville, a fellow Hale Baptist Association congregation, attempt to rebuild its facilities and ministries after an arson attack last year, Gallion Baptist Church decided it wanted to help.
Although insurance and volunteer labor were providing funding for the structural rebuild, Gallion Baptist members knew additional costs could arise.
So the church of about 100 dug deep into its pockets to produce a $10,000 gift.
“I felt like with so much going on about the Great Commission resurgence that people need to understand that the Great Commission begins in the local church, and we want to be the local church helping each other,” said Gallion Baptist’s Pastor Timothy Davis. “Our church has been blessed financially by a local church member in the past, and we want to pass that blessing on to others.”
Pleasant Hill Baptist’s ground breaking is set for March, with completion anticipated for late fall. (TAB)
