WE’RE RAISING THE ROOF!

Dear Attenders at Keele: We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have finished paying off our loan for the new roof on our addition. The bad news is that we have to finally, after over 100 years, replace the slate roof on the original building. Unfortunately the slate has become a danger and we can no longer repair it.

As a result we asked for quotes from various roofers and have been in talks with the city since the building is listed as a heritage property, this past Sunday (June 21) we made our decision and we are going to have the same steel roof installed that we used on the addition. In order to do that, we are going to have the slate removed. The cost is going to be close to $50,000. We know this is a large expense, but it is also an inescapable expense. Please be praying about how you can support this new project and help keep the property both safe and in good repair.

As of the end of May we have raised $23,320.00! Praise the Lord and everyone who has been so generous!


MEET US AT THE MOVIES

Case for Christ MovieThis Wednesday (April 12) our Bible Study Group (and whoever else wants to come) will be going to see “The Case for Christ” movie. The buzz is good, and for those who have read many of Lee Strobel’s books and who know his story, this should be a “must-see” movie. Come for a fun night and at meet us at the movies!

Philippines Mission Trip

It has been a long time coming! Keele is sending a team of 8 people to share Keele’s love with the churches in the Philippines. Keele has benefited substantially from the faithfulness of the churches in the Philippines and we want to show how thankful we are for their ministry!

With this in mind, we want to share some of the things the Lord has taught us over the years in regards to leadership and the study of God’s Word. We are going to be leading some workshops at the 100th Convention of Churches in the Philippines as well as leading Leadership Seminars in Laguna and Cavitie.

We will be visiting many of the churches, in the Cavitie area, that we have been sending our support boxes to over the years. We also hope to spend some time with “Feed My Lost Lambs” and participate in a feeding of the street kids.

Pray that we are used by God to be an encouragement to the church in the Philippines and His hand of grace to those in need of His Gospel and love.

We will be leaving for the Philippines April 19 and return May 10th.

UPDATE: The team is back and will be reporting during the sermon time this coming Sunday.
