Dave Ramsey is a well-known author and financial advisor. He preaches a message of good stewardship and debt free living. During his call in show each day he has people scream “We’re DEBT FREE”. There is a sense of empowerment and joy that you hear from their voices as they yell that statement. These families or business owners sacrificed many things to make that happen. Well, FBC Umatilla our journey is very similar. Our church is over 150 years old and during that time there have been many who sacrificed for the work of the Lord to be done. This most recent project "Making HISTORY Known" has included a 26,000 square foot building, a 7,800 square foot playground, and a new parcel of land. The total project reached around 3.5 million dollars. With God's blessings and the faithfulness of His people here at FBCU we never had a mortgage during this project. This week we finalized the last remaining portion of debt for our new expansion/land addition. Debt free living in our personal lives is amazing, but debt free living in a ministry means more opportunities for kingdom work to be done for the Lord. This gives us the ability to dream towards the future. FBC Umatilla “We’re DEBT FREE!!! Thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord! Make sure you share this amazing story of how God used everyday people to accomplish this God sized task.
Praise the Lord!!
