Fellowship Building Update
Electric lines have been buried under the ground and concrete has been poured for the expansion of the rest rooms. Dry wall has been installed. Many decisions are being made and we are blessed to have a crew of Deacons who help see that everything is running smoothly. Our goal is to have everything finished so we can have more space for fellowships and provide a great spiritual children's worship every Sunday morning. Thank you for your prayers, money and patience as we strive for the goal line. When we finish the project, the family will be starting a Sunday morning Bible Class before worship.

The children's worship went well last Sunday, and we will continue to meet in the Fellowship Building each Sunday morning until further notice.

The family is to be commended for their sacrifice to help build the addition to the Fellowship Building. On September 30th, the opportunity to help with the cost will be given to the church family. We appreciate anything your heart can give as we strive to help God's family grow.
Bus Route Captain
The Joy Bus brought in 10 souls under the sound of the Gospel last week. We thank God for the volunteers who work this ministry. We ask the family for anyone willing to serve as a captain on a bus route in Woodsfield. if you are interested in joy Bus evangelism, contact Brother Keith Jones and he will explain the captain's responsibility.
The community has responded to the good work of the Woodsfield Church of Christ. The work day in June 12th was admired by the public watching how a Christian family works together and gets big things done.
On June 14th, Arbors Care Center went fishing and the word of love and kindness spread through Monroe County. there are different ways to evangelize and using the great outdoors God has blessed us with can and will provide opportunities to share God's Word with the community.
We thank the family for your compassion and talents to help our community.
Covenant Christian Academy
It's hard to believe that Covenant Christian Academy is finishing it's third year. God has blessed us far beyond what we ever dreamed. We now offer grades kindergarten 4 year olds through eighth grade. Our 501c3 status is pending and our accreditation process is almost complete. We are renovation our third building for more space. Lord willing, it will be done in the fall.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support.
Thank you so much for your gracious and generous gift of partnership in the mission effort in Costa Rica. The 5 day Gospel Meeting part saw one brother restored and 14 requests for prayer. The door knocking and canvassing saw one baptism and six very promising Bible studies were conducted and are being followed up by the local brethren.
One serendipitous by product of the campaign was a big leap of fellowship among brethren from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Romani, and other parts of Costa Rica as well as us five "gringos".
Many had never met one another, but while worshiping together made plans for more cooperation on future campaigns.
We praise God how He has used us to bring about this great thing!
Blessings to you,
