NewPointe gives Career Center a facelift

| July 29, 2016

COSHOCTON – Volunteers from NewPointe Community Church met Friday, July 29 at the Coshocton County Career Center at 10 a.m. to clean up the exterior of the building. Approximately 130 volunteers were signed up to come both Friday and Saturday, July 29 – 30 to help with the project.

“We wanted to impact the entire county, and the Career Center has students from each of the county high schools,” said Pastor Chad Olinger. “We want to do a complete facelift on the outside of the building and offered our services. This is also the place where NewPointe launched when we first came to Coshocton.”

Volunteers are meeting at the school today and tomorrow to do everything from power-washing the building to trimming the hedges and everything in between. Today, they plan to stay until around 8 p.m. and on Saturday, they will wrap up their community service with a 12-hour day from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.

This Sunday, all NewPointe churches will not have regular worship services. Instead, volunteers from all church locations will go out in their community to perform community service projects with a lunch held afterward. In Coshocton, members of the church will meet at the career center to put the last finishing touches on the building and to have a luncheon held afterward.

“I think it’s making a big impact on the community,” said volunteer Vickie Bussard who has been a member of the church since it started in Coshocton. “There are a lot of unchurched people out there that we are trying to reach. This is a great thing to do for the community and for God.”
