Groundbreaking held for new church building

By Cyndi Sellers

Hackberry is growing, and so is First Baptist Church. In response to an influx of young families with children coming to join the fellowship, the church held a groundbreaking Sunday, Dec. 10, for a new Children’s Ministry Building.

“With the membership on the rise we have incurred space issues, especially in the children’s area, which is a great thing to address,” said pastor Monte Rowse. Over a year ago, the church began looking into the projected growth and space issues. After much thought and prayer by the Building Team, it was recommended to the church to expand with a Children’s Ministry Building.

The new facility will house additional classrooms, a nursery and restrooms. In addition to the new facility, the children will have a playground and the entire parking lot will be paved with striping to help with parking issues. Construction will begin soon.

The church has seen change in more than the number of children. Over 50 people have been baptized in the past three years. “We are truly humbled by what God is doing among our fellowship,” said Pastor Rowse. It all started with prayer every Friday morning three years ago, which continues to this very day. This project is not about First Baptist Church Hackberry. Buildings will never change a life, only Jesus can accomplish that.
