 Alabaster

 An Alabaster church in Jamaica


September 23, 2018 we received a special love offering for "Alabaster".   This money goes directly to purchase land, build churches, missionary/pastor homes and Christian schools. We compiled a list of typical building materials and their prices so you can get an idea what it costs to build a church.  (You can also see the display in the church foyer)
