“Whatever you do, do all to the Glory of God”
I Corinthians 10:31

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ of Grassy Pond Baptist Church,

Throughout our history, the people of Grassy Pond Baptist Church have sought to know and do the will of God regarding fulfilling His purposes and expanding the work of Christ in this community and the world. We have prayed and worked, asking the Holy Spirit to lead us.

In our recent journey of faith we have shared a vision and determined, by His grace, to build worship and education space that will enable us to attract as many people as possible to Jesus Christ. A building feasibility team was chosen to work with an architect and present to the church a Master Plan for development of the dream. You hold in your hand a description of that plan which I believe is The Master’s Plan for additions to our church.

In this process we have sensed and seen the hand of God move. He has directed our steps. The incredible lay people who have worked untold hours on this project now present to our congregation a bold plan which glorifies God and offers an unprecedented opportunity for the church now and in generations to come … until He comes.

My heart is overflowing with praise as the vision becomes clearer and brighter. Together we can build a lighthouse for the lost and a greenhouse for the saved. Please remember what this is all about. We are not merely building buildings, but we are fulfilling the calling to change lives for the glory of God. We can only continue to minister effectively by making provisions for thousands who are yet to be reached for Christ. The need is now and is very real. The proposed building is not a monument but an instrument for God’s church to use in fulfilling the Great Commission.

This is a defining moment and will set in motion the development of the project. Please examine the contents of this proposal carefully and then prayerfully commit your own life in faith to becoming a vital part of what our great God is about to do in our midst. We need every member of the church to joyfully participate and share in the victory of these days. Through it all, please remember these words of Scripture:

Now to Him who is able to exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

Devotedly,

Terry Lanford
