Our New Church- Crossroads Baptist

These pics have been a long time coming. I finally took some of the church yesterday.
three foyers- 1 on each side and one in the front

front entrance foyer with classrooms, bathrooms, and the library off of it the auditorium -view from entrance foyer doors
view from the pulpit

Aaron's new office- the window views the gym
the church library
the fellowship hall with classrooms, kitchen, and one gym entrance off the sides
view from the back
view from the front outside of kitchen
the kitchen
the nursery- the half way divides the nursery into new borns and crawlers/walkers
other side of the nursery with bathroom and little area with microwave and refrigerator
a little room for nursing mothers off of the side nursery- I included a picture of this, because these types of rooms are so needed. I am glad that they already have one. It is actually a great one. It is not just a curtain, like at most churches; it is an actual room-very private.
Sunday school room with a bathroom that is shared by another classroom on the other side and a closet full of supplies that is shared
other side of the same room -This is Asher's Sunday school room. Abbie's is identical on the other side. The teen room is also like this on the opposite side of the gym.
an older kids Sunday school room- This is Chloe's room. The others are very similar.

gym - this side has classroom, bathrooms, two outside exits - the little window is Aaron's office- the double doors go to the church hallway
another side of the gym with Abbie's and Asher's classrooms- windows look into classrooms
back side of gym
Okay, that is the jist of it. There is more, but I figured there was no need to picture each bathroom, hallway, classroom, and storage area (which there are TONS of).

Wow, the church is so beautiful!! It looks familiar to me but we were in so many churches while on deputation that there is no way for me to know for sure if we were there or not :).
What is the attendance of the church? How is the transition going for the people and you guys? It looks like God is really blessing you guys.

What a beautiful church! Here in Spain that would be Mega church (which are non existant) and it would be in the industrial areas of the town. on the outskirts. We look at those large warhouse type buildings and muse at how they would work for a church building! and then think how it would not work right now in Spain. Maybe someday! :) God knows.

I wrote a comment over on The KJV blog.

Thinking of you and praying for you.
