A BIG THANK YOU!
Back on February 10th we dedicated our new ministry wing at Silverton Friends Church. Some thought it to be a bit premature. Things weren’t completely finished, paint was still wet, and the students of our school hadn’t even moved in on the day of dedication.
Realizing early on that this project was going to be an ongoing work and must be continually dedicated unto the Lord, we made this a priority. From students writing favorite Bible verses with their names in the foundation footers of the building, to covering the floor with Scriptures before the carpet was laid, to prayers of dedication and blessings throughout the rooms at different stages, overall this new ministry wing has been covered faithfully in the prayers of God’s people.
I had the honor of working with the students and teachers of Silverton Christian School in writing a prayer for the dedication, which Becky Ankeny included in the Share Call brochure. In that prayer the students gave thanks for “dedicated people who raised and gave money.” Their faith was evident in their dedication because those “dedicated people” included each of you who responded to the Share Call.
We are overwhelmed at the generosity that our sisters and brothers around the yearly meeting have and continue to shower upon us. You have blessed Silverton Friends Church and Silverton Christian School through your giving. You have shown that we can do together what we can’t do separately.
I hope the next time you are in the Silverton area or just passing through, that you will stop to worship with us and see what your giving has helped accomplish. This new ministry wing is as much yours as it is ours—all because it is dedicated to the work of our Lord!
Thank you, and may God bless you as you have blessed us.
Grace and peace,
Pastor Bob Henry and the people of Silverton Friends Church and Silverton Christian School
