Carpenters for Christ is a group of many volunteers who travel to different states of our country to build churches. They have their headquarters in Attalla, Alabama. The volunteers are made up of many different denominations that come together to serve churches by building houses of worship. Each volunteer pays 120.00 per trip to offset the cost of the food.
The Carpenters came to Centralia and built the new expansion for Eternity Baptist Church in 2006. Many of our members have since taken numerous trips with the organization helping to build churches in many states. Carpenters for Christ’s motto is, “we only build the buildings, God builds the church.”
Carpenters for Christ is an organization of laymen which gives men an opportunity to use their time and talents in constructing church buildings to the Glory of God for churches in pioneer areas that can afford the materials, but not the labor, for much needed facilities to reach people for Christ
