Request for Help

We patched the roof of a woman in our community a few months ago with the help of Westwood Baptist (our parent church).  She is on dialysis and has her daughter and 2 month old grandson living with her. We were able to fix a part of the roof, but the rest of the roof has started to leak. She called today to tell me that the heavy rain caused the roof to leak heavily and the ceiling fell in and nearly hit her grand baby.

The roof needs to be replaced.  We are still too small to tackle a project of this size on our own, but I’m confident that we can work together to make this happen.  Here are the things we need:

  • Prayer.  Ask God to work in this situation to draw this family toward Christ.  Pray that God’s people will be moved to compassion for the hurting and take action.
  • Money for building materials.  You can donate directly to the church’s Compassion Fund for this project here.
  • Roofing materials for a mobile home
  • Volunteers with carpentry and/or roofing skills that can help us repair the roof

Here’s an opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission right here in Montevallo.  Please let me know if you’re in the area and can help.  Pass this on to someone else you know who might be able to help.  Let’s make this happen as soon as possible so this woman can get her home dry and comfortable for herself and her family.  Contact me at or (205) 304-5445.

Donate Money for a Widow in Need

We’re raising money to help a widow who is a member in our church. She has a very old car that is on it’s last leg. The air conditioning is broken and the windows don’t work. She desperately needs a reliable used car for transportation.

This woman has been a faithful member of our church and other churches during her life and has served God in many ways over the years.

I hope you’ll prayerfully consider how you might contribue to her cause. Even the smallest donation will be helpful. Thanks!

Thanks ChurchCrunch!!

Many thanks to John Saddington at ChurchCrunch and Moo for the business cards I won last month.  I just placed my order and I can’t wait to get the cards!  I chose a ready made design pack for the cards that features some truly awesome photos from Paul Cooklin Photography.  I really think these cards will stand out from the rest.  I’m going to use them as I meet people in the community.  I included information about myself and the church (location, meeting time, website, etc.).  Check out these unique cards if you’re interested in making a great first impression!
