Jasper Bend Baptist Church needs volunteer teams to help with a church “reopening” after being nearly closed for around 2 years.” They need professional, carpenters, block masons, and painters to build a front porch (deck,) and handicap ramp, and two small concrete block walls in the basement. (Drawings available).
Would like to begin work around the 1st of October 2014.
Jasper Bend Baptist Church is a small church near Burnside, KY (formerly with the Pulaski County Baptist Association) next to the Beaver Creek Wilderness area on a peninsula surrounded by Lake Cumberland in the Daniel Boone National Forest. The new pastor came in June 2014 and the church is now growing after declining attendance, and is once again reaching out to the community. Over the past few months there was an average of 15-20 attendees on Sunday mornings. They serve a community made up of many senior citizens and they have are attempting to minister to many low-income rural families, retirees, and youth. Because of several dedicated members attending the church it is able to finance some small but critical construction projects in order to save the building from being demolished and the community being without a church.
