May 1-3 Church In A Day Hessmer LA

EARLY 2015
God began to deal with the Raynes family to launch a brand new church in Hessmer, LA. While there were challenges along the way, including the Raynes’ moving from Texas, God made it possible for the work to begin. Pastor Jarryd Raynes, his wife Leslie, son Kingston, joined by Pastor’s grandparents, held their first service on September 6, 2015. Upper Room Church (URC) was born!
 
URC first met at The Woodmen of the World Lodge on Main Street in Hessmer and rented their space by the day and had to set up and tear down all of the equipment every service. This was home for the first six months but as the congregation began to grow another location was desperately needed.
 
MARCH 2016
God opened the door for URC to rent a permanent building at 3910 Hwy 114 in Hessmer in March 2016 and no longer had to set up and tear down the equipment every service. Over the next 15 months URC experienced tremendous growth – almost tripling in size – and growing a variety of new ministries along the way.
 
JUNE 2017
In June 2017 URC moved once again to its present location at 2906 Main Street in Hessmer. The new facility is about 2.5 times larger than the previous one and will help URC continue to reach the Hessmer and Avoyelles Parish community.
 
May 2020
The URC family is so excited about their Church-in-a-day project! We own a little over 3.5 acres about one mile from our current location. This new location will allow us to continue to grow and see souls saved in Avoyelles Parish and beyond!

Church In A Day (CIAD) assists congregations in building new church buildings, all in a single day. With CIAD, a church receives the equivalent of a $100,000 to $250,000 donation, and most importantly, goes from an empty lot to a service-ready sanctuary.

Benefits


  • CIAD takes a pastor from a storefront to a church building the congregation can be proud of in just 24 hours. The completed church is equipped with a sound system, baptistery, pews, and landscaping, and it seats 125-150 people, putting a congregation years ahead.

  • CIAD provides a physical location to stabilize the assembly. With the building in place, the pastor can then establish roots so that spiritual growth can happen.

  • CIAD makes a building program financially feasible. CIAD volunteer labor saves a congregation money, and the North American Missions Division offers special loan programs to assist with certain aspects of the project.

  • A CIAD building is an incredible witness to the community. When passersby notice a new building where a vacant lot was the day before, it generates public attention. In several previous CIAD projects, local media outlets have publicized the CIAD project, helping congregations promote their church.

The Process

A local assembly must have land and the means for putting in a foundation.
CIAD works with the pastor to make sure his permit and legal requirements are in order.
CIAD comes in with volunteer craftsmen and laborers.
24 hours later, CIAD leaves the assembly with a completed church building ready to hold services.
