Manual labor is the avenue members of North Shelby Baptist Church are using to share God’s love. In 2018, the church has 10 projects underway or in the works that involve “construction evangelism.” A team of about 20 church members recently spent a week pouring their physical and spiritual energies into helping Alder Street Baptist Church in the small town of Centralia, WA obtain a fully functional church building. The church sustained substantial flooding damage several years ago and has struggled ever since to get the church building back to a usable state. North Shelby Baptist volunteers replaced windows, hung doors, ground concrete floors, and applied commercial epoxy flooring. The team also led worship and provided a Sunday afternoon “block party” for the neighborhood of the church. The 2018 trip to WA was a follow up to a trip last year in which North Shelby Baptist volunteers insulated and sheet-rocked ceilings and walls, repaired the baptistery circulator/heater, and replaced two heating systems for the church, sanctuary and education space. †
