Can you believe it? It makes no sense to me, but A CHURCH IN DALLAS WANTS TO BUILD MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR BUILDING IN ORDER TO “KEEP UP” WITH OTHER CHURCHES IN THE AREA (and they still owe 9 million on the one they’ve got).
I just had to share a story with you that makes no sense to me. I’m not anti-church building, but building a church building just to keep up with other churches is stupid!
- Build it when you out grow the one you’ve got.
- Build it when you wear out the one you have.
- Build it when there is no other church in the area.
- BUT DON’T build it just because you need to keep up with other churches. That’s got to make the Lord so happy.
I personally think some church buildings are the most under used buildings in the community when they are only used on Sundays and Wednesdays. What are some ways your church uses it’s building to reach out to the community?
