The Church is not just interested in a place to worship on Sundays. Their buildings have uses throughout the week. Most have a basketball court that is amply used by the Young Men program or for dances, some have a softball field on the property, and some have outdoor pavilions for picnics, parties, and devotional firesides.
The most important thing families can do today is to find safe places to interact with the world around them. These pavilions are one example of the Church trying to provide those opportunities.
These pictures are of three pavilions we recently completed in Del Rio, Longview, and Gilmer.
My favorite is this one in Gilmer because of the landscaping included around it.
