I am grateful that God has blessed Versailles Baptist Church with faithful servants, great resources, and ample facilities to share the gospel with thousands of lost people in our area.
When construction on our building addition was completed in 2003, few could have imagined how God would use our facility to reach people in Versailles. The modern nursery has allowed us to welcome hundreds of young adults and their preschool children. The office space has provided the opportunity for us to expand our ministerial staff. Our fifteen additional classrooms have allowed our Sunday School ministry to grow substantially. The youth café and worship area have provided a powerful place for teenagers to come to know Jesus. And who could have imagined that our Fellowship Hall would be used for everything from worship services to senior adult gatherings!
Now, I want you to help me imagine another future—a future where we are free from the burden of our building debt. Imagine what we could do for our church, community, and world if the resources used to service debt were instead used for ministry. We would have the freedom to do more missions, more evangelism, more children’s ministry, and more than we can even imagine!
On February 26th we will launch our Imagine: Freedom to Do More campaign with the goal of helping us to greatly reduce our debt. I hope you will join me for some incredible worship services as we explore what God has in store for us! This campaign requires diligent prayer and faithful obedience to God’s leading as we challenge ourselves to give sacrificially for the next three years.
With a heart of thanksgiving for what God has done — and faith anticipating what God will do — I ask you to consider your part in this campaign. What you give is a personal decision between you and God but what we accomplish together, with God’s help, will benefit many for years to come. May God be glorified as, together, we Imagine the Freedom to Do More!
