Extreme

As many of you know that we serve in a street church that has an incredible ministry to the down and out.  We have about 400 people in our church right now and 50% have recovered from meth addiction. The other 40% have recovered from other addictions.  Anyway, this is a hard ministry and our church never has money.  Our building has been falling apart, and every room  was in great need.  Two years ago we prayed that God would provide a way to keep this ministry alive and bring funds to fix the building. Saturday we got the answer.

There is a large church in town that does a great outreach ministry called Second Saturday.  On the second Saturday of the month they get hundreds of volunteers to ascend upon a building project in the community that will benefit the community. Contractors, construction workers, painters, landscapers etc and everyday people come to help.  The church that has this Second Saturday ministry asked the city commissioner about the need in the community and he said to help “The Lords Gym”.  Thats us.  Other churches got wind of it and low and behold our prayers were answered and 500 people showed up on Saturday to fix our building.  It was the most amazing picture of the body of Christ.  Here is a 3 minute version of the day!!!  Oh and by the way, that city commissioner, Mark Boldt, was on his hand and knees cleaning our chairs we use on Sunday morning (those chairs had some skank).

  1. You gave me your website’s address to let you know when I’d finished the Lord’s Gym photos from Second Saturday (I’m the photographer for SS). I’ve uploaded my photos from last weekend. You can access them via the website above.

  2. Amazing people, AMAZING GOD!!! Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21) Truly a blessing to see how God is working through the Body of Christ in other areas of this country. May He continue the good work He has begun in each of you until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ!!

    In His Love, Patti
