It goes without saying that a group of believers can gather in any place at any time to worship, and the Lord will be among them (Matthew 18:20.) Be it outdoors, in movie theaters, school gyms, or a family’s basement, the global Church is not confined to a building. Still, there is a special blessing that comes with having an entire space that is uniquely dedicated as the Lord’s house day in and day out. God has gifted KingsWay Community Church with such a building and for that, we are so grateful.

Having an established building here in Midlothian means that we have the unique opportunity as KingsWay families to care for the property. This fall, three work days were organized to achieve this end. All available KingsWay attendees were asked to meet at the building on Friday, October 13th, Saturday, October 14th, and Saturday, November 18th, for a time of working together on various projects throughout the building and grounds. Morgan Swank, one of the coordinators of the work day, shares about the results from these efforts below.

“The fall work days were successful! We were able to wash almost all the windows, sanitize all the toys in the nursery, change out all the burnt out lightbulbs in the foyer, organize and clean out several storage areas, paint one of the classrooms, and dust wainscoting. 

Thank you so much to those who came out to help! Working alongside one another helps us grow as a family and creates a sense of ownership of this building. Work days also provide time for Craig to discover and have support to fix maintenance problems that arise. This is incredibly helpful as his weeks are busy with other projects and regular to-do lists. 

We will be having more quarterly work days throughout 2018. The first will be the end of January where we will focus on painting the seminar and ministry rooms. More details to come following the holidays.” 

Stay tuned for more volunteer opportunities to care for our building in the coming months. If you are interested in serving on the property outside of these official work days, contact Craig Smith at
