Cowan First Baptist Family Life Center
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed” (Proverbs 16:3).
Construction has begun on our Family Life Center. The new center will consist of 7600 SF devoted to administrative, education, and multi-purpose space. Construction completion is projected on/about Oct 1, 2012. The center is part of the Cowan First Baptist Church Master Site Plan which was approved when our church relocated to its current site.
The center purpose is to establish a community witness and provide opportunities for our church family and their invited guests to participate in character-building leisure activities conducted in a Christian setting with Spirit-filled leadership.
The opportunity for memorials, honorariums, and gifts to the building fund is ongoing. Contact the church office at 967-7506 for more information on giving.
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works. Psalm 26:7 NKJV
Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
3 “If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, 4 I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit. 5 Your threshing will continue until grape harvest and the grape harvest will continue until planting, and you will eat all the food you want and live in safety in your land. 6 I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country. 7 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you. 8 Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you. 9 “‘I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you. 10 You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new. 11 I will put my dwelling place among you, and I will not abhor you. 12 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people."
The Foundation Matthew 7:24

Fast forward to July 3013: the Family Life Center is finished and we have had children playing in the gym for months. They love it! We have basketball goals, volleyball nets, a pool table, and a ping pong table along with many game balls, scooters, games, etc., on site.
Come by and take a look!
