The exterior refurbishment of the Oakdale Free Methodist Church building is underway. What a difference this is going to make! At right, see how the church looked two weeks ago.
Talk about teamwork! Here are the participants so far:
- The Jackson True Value Store, through their “Painting a Brighter Future” program, has donated 40 gallons of paint, most of which given for the church exterior.
- Davison (MI) Free Methodist Church sent a fantastic work team last week to begin the painting.
- Clarkston (MI) Free Methodist Church is here now to complete the exterior painting.
- Friends of Oakdale made a gift to purchase new basement windows in the church. (These will be installed using volunteers.)
- We are adding stucco to selected areas of the front to repair surface area on the chimney, steeple, and entrance gable.
We are amazed at how the church is already beginning to look (see above and left), and we are excited to see this project completed.
What’s amazing is that, thanks to the window donors, Jackson True Value, and volunteer workers, the total project cost is only $2,500!
Your support of this project will count toward the $400,000 matching gift, which will help complete the funding of the new girls’ dormitory! You can give now by PayPal or credit card, or send a check to Oakdale Christian Academy, 5801 Beattyville Road, Jackson, KY 41339, with “Summer 2013 Initiatives” in the memo line.
