Click on the pastor for a short video about Labelle

Dr. Jim Butler:

I have had phone calls and people asking me on Sunday about the dirt work being done on the south side of our church. Since several have asked, let me put my answer in print for all to see.  No..... we are not building a Family Life Center. One day we will, but it will not be built there. Plans are to build it on our present parking lot. This will be a project I am leaving for Bro Dean. The dirt work you see is Sweetpea's new building. The trustees met last week and signed the sale papers. Those 4 acres are officially sold. We received a check for $160,080.00. This money has been applied to our debt which presently stands at $3,632,684.00. Your faithful giving both to the budget and building fund has allowed us to do so much this past year. If you made a commitment to the building campaign....You can still give by marking the box on your offering envelope. Almost every week people ask me if I will be retiring soon. I hope by your asking you are not trying to get rid of me! Our plans are for me to retire at the end of this year. We do not plan to step down sooner. It will be one of the saddest days of my life when I stop being your Pastor. I love you , this church, and its people mean the world to me.
