A Service of Consecration for the Foundry Christian Community Center was held on Sunday, September 26th. The Bowling Green District voted to buy the former Boys and Girls Club of Bowling Green facility located on the west end of town. The 14,000-square-foot building has a gym and four acres of surrounding land.
The Bowling Green District of the United Methodist Church voted to buy the club to strengthen ministry on the west end of town. “We wanted to invite our district churches and community to have a blessing upon this place,” said Methodist District Superintendent Mike Powers.
Local Hispanic congregation Corazones Christianos will hold services at the new building, along with the Foundry Christian Community Center, which is designed to develop partners with local ministry.
“We will lead the way on this,” Powers said. “But we sincerely want to develop partnerships with individuals and other churches.”
Participating in the service were: Bishop Lindsey Davis; Mike Powers; Lisa Murrell, District Lay Leader; Marco A. Ballesteros, Pastor, Corazones Cristianos; Kevin Mays, District Missions Coordinator; Corzaones Crisitianos Praise Team and Paul Fryman, Chair of Bowling Green District Trustees.
