The work at Flag Spring Baptist Church continued this week with another crew of volunteers.

Missourians on Mission were on the site early Monday morning continuing the work of building a new 50 feet by 100 feet facility to replace the smaller 1879 building destroyed by fire on Nov. 30, 2012.

This group, of which J.D. Althoff and Bill Pace are members, is in its 25th year of helping churches with construction issues. The work crew, supervised by Stanley Casady, is installing windows, siding and roofing, taking up the hammer and saw after the Hermitage First Baptist Church Volunteer Builders did a lot of the framing and installed the sheathing. The concrete slab was poured earlier.

The volunteers are camping at the Moniteau County Fairgrounds in RVs. While the men are working on the church building, many of the women are inside Centennial Hall making quilts to be be donated to service projects and charity.

The quilts being made this week are for St. James Boy and Girls Town.
