Pastor Seth Davidson held the door open for me at St. John Lutheran Church in Athens. I entered the building with an eagerness and excitement of being able to walk across the new flooring which was dedicated exactly one year ago. Those who walk on this floor are literally walking on His word. Before the floors were laid, the congregation took two weeks to pray and write their favorite Bibles verses on the concrete floor underneath. Those verses were written in permanent marker. I love what Pastor Davidson had to say about this:

“Though the new wood flooring covers the concrete and the verses, the Word of God is still there. We may not always see God working behind the scenes, but He is with us step by step along the way.”

Texas CEF mailed out 109 Loan Rebate Checks for 2020 totaling $622,937! This is direct evidence of the faithfulness of your congregation investing with and borrowing from Texas District Church Extension Fund AND your partnership in ministry. THANK YOU!
