The church is currently in need of expansion. We have a small single story sanctuary with an equal size covered patio that is located next to the sanctuary. The patio area is used for the children’s ministry, and it is separated from the sanctuary by open windows to help provide circulating air to the parishioners. This sometimes creates a somewhat chaotic situation because the Sunday School teachers lead the children in Christian games that help provide them with learning tools necessary to keep them involved while presenting them with the message of Christ. We are blessed to have many of them and know that they are growing strongly in the Lord.
We have a bid from a local contractor to expand the church with the building of a second floor to provide a sanctuary for the regular service, without outside interference, which will free up the bottom floor for the children’s ministry, and provide a dry place in case of inclement weather. The construction will cost P4,000,000, which is approximately $80,000. We feel that this will be a blessing for the current worshiper, while it will also provide the church with the opportunity for further expansion of new believers, as well as newcomers.
We ask that everyone, here at Calvary Chapel Davao, and internationally, to keep this in prayer and to possibly help in the attainment of funds for the project.
