Today we placed a special stone in the foundation of our new addition. Jason and Dawn Weber have graced the front doors of Grace Baptist for several years greeting folks as they come to worship. So it only made sense for them to want their rock to go underneath the front doors! On their rock they quoted Psalm 84:10 “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.” The verse is meaningful not only because Jason and Dawn are the “doorkeepers” here but because they would just rather be here. Psalm 84 speaks to the love for the house of God flowing out of a heart that is devoted to Him. Jason and Dawn have faithfully served as “doorkeepers” because they love God, they love His house and they love His people. Simply put; they would rather be here holding open doors than anywhere else. And Scripture speaks highly of that heart!
Our prayer is many more people will walk through for the first time these doors in years to come, be greeted Jason and Dawn and then hear the redeeming word of God.
