New Beginnings Ministry has new home
New Beginnings Ministry, serving the people of Butler County since November 2010, has moved locations after outgrowing their previous one. New Beginnings now occupies the the old All-Mart (C & W Carpet) building on Beaver Dam Road (HWY 231 N) after spending their first years in the old Save-A-Lot building in Morgantown.
Renovations are underway as the congregation works to transform the former store building into a house of worship.
"We are starting to construct a worship center that will seat around 300 people and will include a baptistry," said Pastor Joseph Henderson, "and some folks from the community are using their talents to help build our church."
Pastor Henderson says that the church was founded as a non-denominational church. This means that the church is independent and not affiliated with or goverened by any denominational organization.
Church member Kathy Lawrence describes New Beginnings as a place where you can "praise and worship as you wish." She said, "If if you feel moved to raise your hands or shout, you can." She added, "God is alive here and you can feel it."
In order to show their appreciation for the community help and support during the moving and renovation process, New Beginnings will be hosting a community yard sale where members of the congregation will prepare food for all those who attend. The yard sale will be held on the first Saturday in May. Plans are also underway to schedule a Friends and Family Day as well as schedule Bible School during the summer.
Pastor Henderson and congregation want to extend an invitation to attend New Beginnings out to the community. Sunday school begins at 9:45 a.m. and the worship service begins at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday. A Thursday night service is held 6:30 p.m.
