Tabernacle Plans at Morrison Park

After many months of fundraising, and soliciting donations, it seems we have reached a place where we must make a decision about the tabernacle, and what to build. We have, thank the Lord, reached an amount we were hoping at the very least, would be possible to raise. With donations and pledges, we have approximately $21,000. If we could build the tabernacle ourselves and eliminate much of the labor, this would greatly enhance what we could do, however; we have to deal with the situation we have. There is no one now available with the necessary skills to do this, therefore we must hire the laborers. We have an estimate that should allow us to build a 80 x 30 structure over the existing concrete, wood frame, using the original metal trusses, metal roof, and partially enclosed with brown metal. We will hopefully, with this amount have the resources to build the podium/pulpit area, and do the necessary electrical writing for the building. Any additional monies beyond this work would likely need to go toward some type of seating for the tabernacle. We are very thankful for those who gave much, and likewise, so thankful for those who could only afford to give a little. I am personally disappointed by many who chose to do nothing. But, I do rejoice that the Lord has answered our prayer, and Lord willing we will soon have a tabernacle where services will be held. Mike Wilson, "Two Brothers Construction," can build a structure similar in design to the photo sketch above. They are very excited about this work, and should be able to start the project by mid-June. Several trees have to be removed that interfere with the building. Bob Bell has taken on the project to remove the trees. We thank him for this work and all he and his wife Edie have done, to beautify the park with their glorious flowers and landscaping. Thanks again to everyone that has helped out, given, and made the building of the tabernacle possible. Please continue to pray for our efforts as we continue on. God Bless you all , Gary Bewley

Bro. Dale Copas preached the Easter Sunrise Service at Morrison Park

    Bro. Dale Copas preached the Easter Sunrise sermon at Morrison Park Sunday morning. Bro. Copas gave a most memorable message about the risen Savior and His saving grace. I have not heard any minister proclaim God's word with any greater power and spiritualness, than that which I witnessed Sunday morning.The Lord was truly with us and I think all were blessed. Three hundred dollars was given by those in attendance Easter morning, for the rebuilding of the tabernacle. Bro. Dillard and Mary Rigsby gave $100.00, Bro. Copas took no money, and gave all his offerings to the Park. Everyone in attendance I think gave something. God bless Bro. Copas and each one who came and gave. What a blessed morning we had. Praise the Lord! Gary Bewley

Good Friday at Morrison Park.

Morrison Park had a good Friday, with a lot of great helpers. Ricky Spillman provided gravel for our driveway, and a wonderful group of young college students from Chicago Il. came and worked all evening cleaning an illegal dump site that exist at rear of the park. These young peole completely filled a dumpster. It is incrediable to conceive how some people could be so disrespectful and unconcerned that they would throw mountains of trash on someone elses property, but even m...ore incrediable is to know, that a group of students would spend their spring break, to come to our county, to help clean us up. Peggy Nims worked with these students, and John Stephens brought us a county dumpster and arranged their coming.

 Thanks to everyone for their help, but especially for these young students who worked in our area all month doing tremendous work. God Bless You All, Gary Bewley
