Extreme Church Makeover Projects are one of the main focuses of Potomac Men’s Ministries. These projects engage men in ministry while providing a much-needed boost for churches that are unable to renovate their facilities themselves. This year we have three church projects scheduled and ready to go! We will also support the rebuilding processes of the Hurricane Sandy disaster in New Jersey, bringing us to four scheduled projects in 2013.
Project #1 South Cumberland A/G – February 21-23 - COMPLETE!
View photos and more at South Cumberland AG's Facebook page.
Project # 2 Hurricane Sandy Rebuild – RESCHEDULED: April 17-20 - SUCCESS!
Drywall hangers, finishers, carpenters, trim installation and insulation installer and basic laborers. We are still awaiting word on how we will be able to proceed, but all indications point to beginning of reconstruction in February and teams will be desperately needed. Transportation will be on your own to New Jersey. We will work directly with Christ In Action and they will provide meals and a place to sleep. Each person will need to register with them via website for participation. www.Christinaction.com
Project # 3 Frostburg A/G – June 13-15
This project will be similar to South Cumberland, it will be an interior sanctuary renovation with new bathrooms being installed, much painting. We will be painting the entire sanctuary and ceiling and installing new lighting as well. Building a new sound booth. We will tear out basement walls, replace lighting there and paint concrete floor. We will need electrician and helpers, carpenters, lots of painters, plumber and laborers.
Project # 4 Fellowsville A/G – September 19-21
This project we will be painting most of the church, renovating bathroom stalls, walls and ceiling, redoing kitchen cabinets, countertops and putting ceramic flooring in bathrooms and foyer area. This project will be two-phased with a Spring 2014 date to re-shingle the roof. We need carpenters, painters, and general labor.
Each of these projects are for wonderful churches who are actively reaching out into their communities and each pastor is part of a leadership cohort process, building the leadership team while we come and help them with their facilities.
At each project, meals are provided, we will sleep in the church or you may stay at an area hotel at your expense. I will provide that information when we get closer to each project. We strongly urge you to bring your own tools that you will need.
I cannot tell you how much these projects mean to the people, the pastors and to the communities. Please make you plans to be a part of 2013 Extreme Makeover Projects sponsored by Potomac Men’s Ministries.
