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!)
