A truly amazing work began on April 8, as eight churches from the Hudson Valley Pastors (HVP) Learning Community came together for “Project Restoration.” The congregation of Calvary Baptist Church in Ossining, New York, has been unable to use their sanctuary for two years due to flood damage.
God put the CBC congregation on the heart of Jim Myhren from Calvary Baptist Church of Warwick, New York. With the encouragement of his pastor, Craig Adams, he began to engage and organize men and women from the cluster churches into a team.
Regarding his burden for this project, Jim said:
“Pastor Adams announced from the pulpit that a sister church in Ossining needed our help. I began to think more and more about it and often I would be woken up by thoughts of the church. I thought how good it would be for all the churches to work together for a common ministry goal and the thought would not leave me alone. We are told these days that Christianity is not relevant. We need to show the world we are relevant if we want it to pay attention. I believe God is going to do something tremendous in Ossining and I want to be near when He does.”
Seasoned contractors, skilled laborers and willing amateurs came together to do a mighty work for the kingdom. Others have taken up offerings to provide materials and supplies to further the work.
It’s just the beginning, but what a tremendous beginning. When God’s people work together, there is no end to what He can do through them. The churches need prayer, supplies and finances to continue the work, as well as an architect or engineer who is willing to donate some time to this project.
