Brushwood United Methodist Church in Dubberly, La. is a church without a sanctuary. Due to major structural problems, the building was torn down.
“The church has earmarked $2,000 the event. In my past corporate life, I was taught to ‘follow the money.’ The money says this congregation is ‘all in’ in blessing our children!,” wrote Rev. Ed Cooper.
Rev. Cooper added that this event is being held in an area of South Webster parish known as the “Lowland of Sorrow." This area is populated by the poor and drug addiction is a significant problem. “We believe, with our whole hearts, a name change for this area will ensue
following this ‘time of blessing.’ Brushwood is committed to mission, even though we are a church without walls, prioritizing lives over bricks.”
