New Tent Top Has Been Delivered
Over the past year we have been raising funds to replace the top on one of our ministry tents, and thanks to the generosity of four of our churches, it is now ready for use. The new top gives us two nearly new tents and two older tents that are still usable. We will continue to use the older tents for longer-term set-ups such as new church starts. Because we are going to begin to carry insurance on the newer tent tops and because we need to replace some of the poles, our rates will be changed, effective immediately, to $350 for a newer tent and $250 for an older tent for 1 to 31 days. (For rentals that are already on the books, we will honor our old rate of $250).
Projects at Mathews Retreat
We have several needs at Mathews Retreat that would make great projects for a youth, women’s group, or men’s group at Mathews Retreat. Projects range from replacing Crepe Myrtles, brush clearing, spraying Roundup on the parking area, pouring some small amounts of concrete, making some repairs on the playground equipment, constructing picnic tables, building a backstop, or upgrading the volleyball court. There are some larger projects are needed as well. Contact Jim Gatliff at 903.413.4411 for information.
