The Fundraiser in the Grove

The Fundraiser in the Grove

Last weekend was the 4th annual fund raiser for Best Life Ministries.  The week before the event, the farmer and I worked diligently to prepare every single detail to make things comfortable, welcoming, and enjoyable. We always think about what will help people experience a glimpse into the past, and one of my favorite things […]

Keeping Your Foothold on Shaky Ground

Keeping Your Foothold on Shaky Ground

I remember four years ago when our little 1900’s church was moved to the south grove at our farm.  It was a time of great excitement, deep joy, and happy anticipation. As a few trees were cleared, grounds were measured, cement blocks were put into place and we awaited the arrival of the beautiful old […]

The Wedding

                        This past weekend was bitterly cold with winds whipping through the little grove sending a biting chill through your body.  No matter how many times I stand in front of the little church mid-winter, I can’t quite get used to the frigid wind. […]

The Next Big Thing~Church in the Grove

The Next Big Thing~Church in the Grove

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth:  It’s been three years since the church arrived.  That sounds strange.  The church arrived.   In my mind’s eye, I can still feel the warmth of that August day.  I can still hear the sounds of the worship band singing “Amazing Grace.”  I can still embrace the excitement that we felt as […]

In the Grove: The New Furnace

The wintry winds have been whipping through the grove this morning, but the sun is shining brightly.  It was just a few short weeks ago that Farmer Dean and I walked through the front doors of our little church, expressing our excitement over what was to happen. We had worked as hard as two busy […]

The Path

I could hear them, but I couldn’t see them.  The sound was lovely, as I heard the birds chattering high up amidst the trees in the front yard.  I was making my journey along the path I’ve worn from my house to the old church.  Day in and day out, I find myself traveling this path.  It’s […]

When the Dots Connect

When the Dots Connect

This past week was one of glorious change at Frank Lake Church in the Grove!  Not just change … but restoration, growth, encouragement, and hope.  Let me tell you how God is working in the day in and day out of the old building that sits next to our home.  The week was whirling by, […]

Facelift For a Fabulous Face

Facelift For a Fabulous Face

There it stands … the beautiful church in our grove.  Every day when I push past the big old doors, and walk inside, I throw my hands up in praise and say, “Hello, Frank Lake Church, hello, God!” and I begin my work, whatever it is for that day.  The inside stays cool and inviting, […]

The Pie Social

I watched as Dean carefully placed the finishing touches on the hand railing that would help people walk up the stairs and into the church.  The big heavy posts made out of cast iron, were hand-picked by Deano and he painstakingly made everything exact and perfect, per the norm.  The outside was looking good as […]

Planting Seeds

Planting Seeds

1 Corinthians 3:6-7 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. 7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.”  (NIV) It’s been a year since I first walked into the Frank Lake Covenant Church.  Last fall, the grove […]
