Shiloh Baptist build project (local weekend project)

The project at Shiloh is scheduled to start on October 20 and 21. Emory Combs wants to know how many will be there on Friday and Saturday since the Church is preparing lunch. If you know anyone that does not have E-MAIL and would like to help with this project please let them know and if they can help let me or Emory know.

The Slab has been poured and they are in the process of getting material for the build.

Remember we need a head count for lunch.

Shiloh is located at the intersection of CR53 and CR 121 in Western Chambers County, AL

Great mission 2017! Next event, the end of year banquet

Each Carpenter (or Sponsor) plus one guest is included in the cost of the trip.
For each additional guest attending the banquet, there will be a $10.00 charge.

Shirts, caps, etc., will be on sale at the banquet, as well as any DVDs that you ordered (don’t worry, there are extras in case you forgot to order.)

See you then!

Mission 2016 announced…and BBQ too!

Our Mission 2016 destination has been announced. God has led us this year just down the road…to Midland City, AL, (just outside of Dothan) to help Mt. Enon Baptist Church build a new sanctuary building. The advance crew is planning to leave on Friday, June 3, with the official mission dates to be Monday, June 6 through Wednesday, June 15.  (NOTE:  make sure to program your GPS for Mt. Enon in Midland City…not Dothan because there is a Mt. Enon church in Dothan too!)

NOW is the time to contact Don Wall and get registered for the trip; it’s also time to be praying for it too! Pray that God would show you another brother in Christ, or another man who might need to fellowship with other Christian men, to invite along on this trip!

As a combination fund-raiser and meeting for all Carpenters and their families, there will be a Carpenter BBQ to be held in Waverly, AL, on Saturday, April 23, 2016. It will be from 11am to 4pm EST. Details are below; this event is open to everyone, not just Carpenters and their families (but it would also be a great opportunity to bring some recruits and introduce them!)
