Inscribed bricks help organizatio ns of any size raise funds for marketing. Special memorial bricks are ordered for about $25 a brick and members often give up to 10 times their cost leading to very successful fundraising campaigns. Once the sign is purchased and installed, the memorial bricks become a permanent part of the sign's foundation, making a lasting memorial to the names inscribed.
"Our memorial brick campaign was a huge success," explains Dr. Lavender.
"The sign cost about $45,000 and we were able to assemble funds in two weeks," he says.
"I strongly recommend this kind of stewardship program for other churches, regardless of size," emphasizes Jim.

Like A Dove - Ministers Supporting Homosexual Ad [cached]

Jim Lavender, senior pastor at Discovery United Methodist Church, refused to sign the statement arguing that the church should not deny practicing homosexuals full membership.Among the reasons he gave was that he felt the ad singled out homosexuality from other issues facing the church and, more importantly, it failed to call the lifestyle what the Bible says it is, sin.

"Homosexual behavior is not compatible with a Christian lifestyle," Lavender asserts.
Lavender says he has noticed a "groundswell of conservative opposition" in the denomination to the "liberal approach" to homosexuality and church membership.
Lavender believes the Bible is clear in its assertion that homosexuality, along with a lot of other proscribed behaviors, is sin.As such, he says, it is something the church is required to address, since it has bearings on who can be allowed to teach and minister to others in the body of Christ, as well as who can be married in the church.
