First Baptist Church, Clarence, MO
Aug 20-24, 2018 
FBC Clarence has a current attendance of 6-8 members, Jerry Lillard, Pastor.   Roof replacement started this summer with volunteers, but stalled when all the volunteers quit because of steep roof pitch of 12/12 and 18/12.  3 layers of asphalt shingles and a layer of cedar shake shingles were removed.  MO COM finished the roof with water proofing material, 2X4 purlins and metal sheeting.  Omaha church donated the use of a bucket truck and 2 men.  They were greatly appreciated.

The project was headed by Stanley Casady along with Mark Harpham, Roger Jefferies, V.C. Cunningham, and Jim Rawlings.  Andy and C.L. Vestal from Omaha Church helped also.
