Workmen put on finishing touches to the classroom area
By WANDA LASATER
Even as members of Oakwood Baptist Church step into their new sanctuary Sunday, plans are being formulated tor the next step of a master plan.
Before the master plan goes further, members will take time to celebrate the work of the past three years with baptism and Lord's supper services Sunday.
The first baptism in the building will be Sunday morning following the 9:30 a.m. Sunday school time. The Lord's supper will be at the 7 p.m. service.
The Rev. Eucled Moore said that the congregation will host an open house and special services for the community in two or three weeks.
After things are settled in the new church, Moore said the next project will be an amphitheater to be built within the next year or two, followed by two — possibly three — more buildings on the site on Loop 337.
“You have to have vision," said the pastor. “Because if you don't, then by the time you need the space it's too late." The church acquired three and a half acres on Loop 337 and has the option for another three and a half acres in October “But that's already three acres short," said Moore.
Oakwood Baptist started about three and a half years ami as a mission out of First Baptist Church. Members have used school buildings and homes for worship and Sunday school meetings.
Attendance at Sunday worship

services is between 180 and 200 now , but Moore said he expects to begin double services by next summer.
The new multi-use building with 15,000 square feet was designed with expansion in mind. Even the two-story open sanctuary will one day be converted to two floors of classrooms.
Plans include an adjacent worship center as well as another building with all three connected by an atrium overlooking the amphitheater and valley.
The amphitheater will be on a hillside behind the church building. It w ill be used during warm weather for “come-as-you-are services,” said the pastor. "We have thousands of tourists who come here in summer and most of them, if they have to get dressed up. w on’t go to church.
“We want to impact this com mutiny And this (building! is a tool We don't bo. God in this building This is where we equip ourselves to minister to tile community."
Founding minister to cite anniversary
Dr. Carl N. Roth, one of die founding ministers of St. Andrew Lutheran Church near Startzville, is observing his 59th year of ordination this week.
Dr. A.G. Wiederaenders, a retired Lutheran minister living in Seguin and co-founder of St. Andrew, will preach the sermon Sunday. His theme will be “The Present Tense in our Salvation” based on I John 3:1-2. Rev. Harold Wernecke, pastor of St. Andrew, will be the presiding minister. The worship service will begin at 10:15 a.m.
A reception in Dr. Roth's honor at the church fellowship room will follow the worship service.
Chaplain resigns from Church in Valley
At the regular meeting July 9 of the board of trustees of Church in the Valley, trustees accepted the resignation of Chaplain James Gary Calmes.
Calmes has served the church as pastor since December 1983 Church officials said that Calmes recurring attacks of “stress-induced depression” prompted the resignation. Calmes will be on extended sick leave at the church parsonage through July.
“Gary has many friends iii the Canyon I^ake area who are deeply concerned because of his health problems and are continuing in prayer for his future and recovery," said Pearl Phelps.
A pastoral relations commission has been asked to form a search program for a pastor for the church.
