After the church bought the property on Capitol Drive, this fishing boat was found on property. Church members tried to fix it to no avail, and it ended up in a storage barn. Before building, the boat was unearthed after the storage barn was taken down. Later, the boat was moved by the groundskeeper. The construction crews arrived and got to work. At the time, Pastor Lonnie was preaching a series on Peter and becoming "fishers of men". An instrumental church member came to the property and took this photo. Unplanned, the boat ended up atop a mound of dirt next to the foundation of the church. There, three crosses were formed by the bracing put up by masons. The center cross higher than the rest and hovering over the boat. Sometimes, a boat is just a boat. Bricks are just bricks. And there are other times when God whispers to us and reminds us that a boat abandoned long ago for fishing in water.......was just the beginning of fishing for more precious catch.
