Texas church group helps rebuilding effort

NORWICH – Thanks to volunteerism and a touch of southern hospitality, congregation members of Agape Baptist Church in Norwich are taking on some of the much-needed alterations inside and outside of their church.



Last week, a group of 17 volunteers by name of “The Men of Issachar” made their way from Jersey Village Baptist Church in Austin, Texas to rural Chenango County to lend a helping hand in Agape’s latest building projects. Before heading back home Friday, volunteers hope to complete a series of interior and exterior renovations that includes repairing or replacing damaged plaster ceilings throughout the church building, minor electrical work, and the construction of a handicapped accessible ramp outside the building’s front entrance.
