God-willing, December 20th will be our
first services in our new ministry center. (We have one final inspection
to pass this coming Monday night before receiving occupancy, on Tuesday
That means we have 10 days starting today to move in
so that we’re ready for the 20th. There is cleaning, organizing,
assembling, and yes…moving…that needs to get done in this process.
I’m personally asking for some extra special help the next couple days
in this already busy time of year. I’m even asking that perhaps you
might consider taking a day off of work, or a half-day, to come and help
us in this unique season of our church’s history.
Here’s how you can help:
Friday, 12/11 at 7am:
Cassy and I will be at Showtime Cinema to begin moving out all the
supplies not needed for church this Sunday. A 26 ft moving truck will
arrive at 7:30 am at Showtime. We would appreciate all the help we can
get tomorrow morning any time after 7 am to move things into the truck.
Afterwards, we’ll follow the truck to our storage unit on Hwy 100 and
Layton, Cassy’s apartment, and the church parsonage to continue filling
it will stuff that is being stored for our ministry center. I will
personally buy lunch for all who can come and help tomorrow! We will be
parking the truck at our ministry center in the parking lot over the
Sunday 12/13: We want to fill the
moving truck with any remaining things left at Showtime Cinema so that
we are completely moved out on Sunday after the pageant. We need some
help to do this.
Tuesday 12/15 at 7am: We will
begin unloading the moving truck into the ministry center. We need help
unloading the truck, putting things away, organizing, cleaning, doing
some light furniture assembly, and basically just working with
directions on where to put stuff. Any help Tuesday morning would be
greatly appreciated. Lunch will be provided!
Tuesday 12/15 at 12pm:
We need some strong people to follow the moving truck to Jeff and Nissa
Guenther’s house in New Berlin to move all our office furniture. I
expect this to take the entire afternoon and we really need at least 5-6
strong people to help but the more the merrier. I will be a part of
this but I sure can’t do it alone. Meanwhile during Tuesday afternoon a
crew can be at the ministry center helping to put away all the kids’
ministry things that we unloaded in the morning.
There will be lots to do as far as cleaning, organizing, and putting
stuff away. Can you help for a morning, an afternoon, or an evening? Any
help Tuesday-Friday would be huge. Kids are welcome. We’ve got the
toddler room available with toys in the toddler corner. And if you’ve
got some cleaning rags, Norwex cloths, etc those things could help.
Reach out to Cassy and let her know when you can come if it’s just for an hour or two on one day.
Thursday morning, December 17th
– is our Operation Jesus Cares Christmas Project with Christ-St Peter.
We’ll take a break from working in Franklin to help our brothers and
sisters on the southside from 8am - 12:30 pm. Remember to email Ryan Solie if you can help with this.
– Please pray for a successful final inspection on Monday evening as
well as the Lord’s peace for everyone during this moving process. Please
pray for safety and protection for all in the moving process. But also
please pray that through it all God is glorified and our house of
worship is made ready for the Gospel of our dear Savior to be shared
Please email me and/or Cassy if and when you can help at any time on any of these days so that we have a sense how many people we’ll have each day.
Thank you so much!!!
