Since acquiring the former East 4th Street School in May of 2000, we have invested a little over $500,000. We have installed a new roof, paved the parking areas, replaced over 100 broken windows, and chemically cleaned the brick, painted all the trim, installed a new electrical entrance, heating system upgrades, gymnasium, and much, much more!
Over the years we have consistently been asked by concerned parents of Cameron County; “When will the gymnasium be ready to use?” We are committed to renovating the gymnasium; as a matter of fact, over the last several years, two of our seniors have taken on the task of sealing the gymnasium from water seepage as part of their senior project and a second teen decided as his senior project to install a new ceiling; we are pleased to say that both projects are complete.
Now that the water seepage has been addressed and we have a new ceiling, we are now getting ready to install new bleachers, basketball hoops, volleyball net. As you can imagine, this has been a very ambitious project and we still need your help. Your tax deductible gift of any amount will go directly into this project. Please consider supporting our cause! It’s really easy to give, just click the PayPal button on the right and your donation will be processed.
Thanks so much for your generous support of this worthwhile project.
So . . . what goes on inside the Christian Center? Well, first and foremost, we are a church with Sunday Services each weekend; Sunday schools for all ages at 9:45 AM followed by a contemporary worship service at 11:00AM. Those coming to church Sunday morning are greeting by friendly faces, fresh coffee and cookies . . . sweet!
Dress is casual, blue jeans and sneakers are just fine; as a matter of fact, that’s what I (pastor Rock) usually wear on Sunday too!
We have a small resale shop, Country Blessings, which receives goods from the residents of Cameron County. These goods are screened and placed in the store; excess items go to Goodwill. A large portion of the proceeds from this little store, are used to help those in need. Since Country Blessings has opened in 2001, we have given out over $70,000 to the less fortunate in Cameron County. We will take most donated items, but we would rather not take furniture or appliances unless you call ahead first. You can reach Country Blessings by calling 814-486-1841 ext 1.
The Center also has free WI-FI for those who are looking for a place to come and have coffee and surf the net. There is no cost for the WI-FI or the coffee! Come on down and check it out. We are open Tuesday – Friday from 9-5.
So, there you have it, a brief overview of what we do at the Center. There are many more things to talk about; stop down sometime. Be sure and look around the website . . . lots of good info for you to look over!
