Bless A Church Planter

***We are meeting Wednesday morning, June 20th at 9am to do some painting, landscaping, and general cleaning. The address is 949 Bell Rd., Greenwood, AR 72936.

Planting a new church is always a stressful experience, and we are excited to have the opportunity to bless one of our own and take some of that stress away.

Jason & Rachelle Helmbacher moved from Greenwood to St. Louis to replant an old, dying church. Meanwhile, their house in Greenwood never sold, then they had the terrible experience of having bad renters who didn’t pay and who really damaged the house. Planting churches has never been a lucrative business venture, so the house has just sat as it is with very little interest from buyers. This has obviously been a huge thing hanging over the Helmbacher’s heads!

We decided that as a church we could help and bless them a little bit.

I have listed below the things that we will be doing, so if you can do any of these things we would appreciate the help. If you can do any of these things prior to the work day, you are welcome to – just email Scott Ward.

Our church, along with a couple of other partnering churches, are providing the finances to purchase all of the materials.
