Portland area Baptists seek help from SBTC partner

PORTLAND, Ore.?Opportunities exist for Texas churches to participate in the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention’s partnership with Interstate Baptist Association in Portland, Ore. in the areas of construction and backyard Bible club ministry.

At Peninsula Baptist Church in north Portland, extensive work is needed on the church’s facilities. Most of the repairs are needed for insurance coverage, but the church has little money or manpower to complete the repairs. The repairs needed include:

v Water drainage near a wall;

v Gutter repair;

v Carpet re-stretch;

v Window installation;

v Floor/wall repairs in office;

v Wheelchair access to auditorium and restrooms;

v Fire door installation;

v Parsonage roof replacement.

Oregon City Baptist Church seeks help with two backyard Bible clubs in July along with possible sports camps, block parties and other evangelism and pre-evangelism during the same week.

For more information, contact Rob Penegra, new church strategist at Interstate Baptist Association, 503-452-2930 or 360-910-7797.
