EAST CULLMAN ASSOCIATION
Seeing various ministries and Vacation Bible Schools canceled was hard for Debbie Keaton, ministry associate at East Cullman Baptist Association, as it was for many in 2020.
It was “disheartening and depressing” to miss out on the steady flow of volunteers and visitors who usually came in and out of the association’s Ministry Resource Center every week, she said.
But the association’s staff and volunteers — led by associational missionary Randy Makemson — used that time to work on some needed building renovations for the Ministry Resource Center, which they celebrated with an open house on May 23. The center serves as an office space for the association, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. It also offers meeting space and a room full of resources for churches and serves as a hub for missions projects.
“We have been very blessed, and this event is a way to reaffirm our churches and show them what we had going on before the pandemic is still going on,” Keaton said.
