Carpenters for Christ

June 8, 2005

Moultrie - The group is called Carpenters for Christ and every year, the week before Father's Day, they build a church to honor their heavenly Father.

Norman Stoudemire has been volunteering with Carpenters for Christ for about five years, he started when the group came to build his church, in Beech Island, South Carolina. He says, "I love it, I look forward to it every year and as long as the Lord will let me come in here and do the work, I'm going to come do it."

About 130 men will participate in the build this week. Julian Newman, who founded the group says he's amazed at what happens when you trust in the Lord. He says, "It's just a wonderful thing to come in and help a congregation. When you get here and see this slab and next Friday when we leave, there will be a building standing here."

A church built on a solid foundation with a single focus. "It's something that all of us enjoy," says Stoudemire, "otherwise we wouldn't do it, but it's for the Lord, so that's the whole thing. And if this can help bring souls into the flock, that's what it's for."

Even though the church won't be complete by Sunday, that won't stop these men from worshipping in God's house. Volunteers are welcome to participate in the build this week. Temple Baptist Church is located on highway 319 South in Colquitt County.
