Since August 2019, the congregants of Jesus Saves Church have met every Sunday inside a small house on West Main. Today, a little less than two years later, those congregants are ready to break ground on a project that will culminate in a new, permanent home for the church.
Pastor Brad McKenzie hopes the public will join in the joyous occasion. Slated for Wednesday, May 19, at 6:30 p.m., all members of the church, including the children, will gather on Highway 56 North just outside Swainsboro with shovels in hand to christen the site and to celebrate the significant financial strides made thus far. To date, Jesus Saves Church has raised $54,573.90 for the undertaking. Refreshments and a fellowship meal will be part of the celebration as well.
“On behalf of Jesus Saves Church, we’d just like to say thank you to everyone who has supported us. If you’ve donated to the cause or if you’ve prayed for us, or if you’ve done both or even something different, we appreciate it. We wouldn’t be where we are today, planning this groundbreaking, without your help,” McKenzie said. “We hope you’ll come out and join us next week as we break ground on our forever home. Bring a shovel! And please, most importantly, continue to pray for our project.”
