Thompson Falls, Montana
First Baptist in Thompson Falls, Montana has outgrown their small worship space and need assistance in constructing a 4,000 square foot worship center adjacent to their current church building. We will need many teams to do framing, roofing, siding, sheetrock hanging and finishing, trim work, tile, painting, and other finish work. Teams will be scheduled throughout the summer. Each team should have a “core” of volunteers with solid construction experience, and others with willing hands and hearts. We will schedule up to, but not more than, 24 volunteers per week, so there could be more than one team on site per week. Teams will arrange their own travel to Thompson Falls. Nearest airports would include Spokane, WA (131 miles), Missoula, MT (95 miles), and Kalispell, MT (105 miles). Teams may want to rent vehicles if they fly. However, the church is willing to pick teams up if flying into one of these three airports, and transport them to Thompson Falls. Teams will be housed in the existing church facility in NCBM-owned bunkbeds (sheets, towels, and pillows provided). Church has bathrooms, showers, and a kitchen for team’s use. Each team will be responsible for their own meals and need to bring volunteers to assist in meal prep. A laundromat is located very near the church. All team members will need to enroll in the volunteer missionary insurance offered by NCBM (only 75 cents per person per day). All teams will be scheduled through the NCBM office.
