Who are the Lord's Builders?
In 1994 the Millbury Federated Church (MFC) men’s prayer group learned that some churches in the southern states, primarily with black congregations, were being burned down as an expression of racial hatred. Determined to demonstrate that these acts were not representative of how most people felt, this group decided to take action. They formed a new group called The Lord’s Builders and developed a mission to assist in rebuilding the churches. What was damaged in hate would be rebuilt in love. After much planning and praying the Lord’s Builders made their first mission trip in February 1997.
Since then teams of men and women, ranging in number from 15 to 36, in ages from 13 to the late 60’s, and from many congregations and towns, have participated in these rebuilding adventures. We have professional contractors, people who have never held a power tool and every level of ability in between. We have helped to rebuild churches in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.
There is so much need in the world today. We are blessed to be in a position to take advantage of an opportunity to be able to help others less fortunate. If you can help, we are sincerely grateful.
These mission trips are paid for entirely by fundraisers and donations please support The Lord’s Builders with a tax-deductible donation, please send a check or money order made payable to The Lord’s Builders, c/o Millbury Federated Church, 20 Main Street, Millbury, MA 01527.
