“And the house which I build is great: for great is our God above all gods. But who is able to build him a house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him a house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?”
2 Chronicles 2:5-6 (KJV)
In the verses above, King Solomon’s intent was to build the temple of God, but in acknowledging His greatness, the king deemed it necessary for a significant sacrifice to be made to accomplish this task. Members of the Braeton Church, residing in Jamaica and the diaspora, made a substantial sacrifice to improve the restroom facilities at their house of worship.
On Wednesday, December 11, the new facilities were dedicated and commissioned into use.
Christopher Mighty, Senior Pastor of the congregation recognized the contributions made by various persons. “It was the members who made this wonderful project possible. I would like to also acknowledge the hardworking individuals who comprise the Building Committee, for the dedication and commitment they have expressed to God and His church.
Pastor Romone Phoenix, former pastor of the Braeton Church, who now serves as Parish Coordinator for St. Catherine and Pastor of the Old Harbour District of Churches, congratulated the members and expressed that the church had the continued support of the Pastors in St. Catherine. He stated, “Anything for Jesus makes everyone comfortable. I encourage the church to go further with the expansion.”
Chairman of the Building Committee, Elder Randall Williams, expressed gratitude to the members as well as his team for their commitment. He indicated that the next phase of the expansion will be in the main sanctuary.

Pastor Kevan Barnaby, Youth Ministries Director for the Central Jamaica Conference and a former pastor of Braeton, in delivering the charge, congratulated the church for putting their hands into that of the Master Builder to accomplish the task.
“The church that walks with God always gets to its destination safely,” he said.
In commenting on the members’ commitment to returning tithes and offerings, he continued, “When we take care of God’s business, He will take care of ours. In this project, we have evidence of God’s faithfulness”.
The restroom now caters to persons with disabilities, has a changing room for parents with infants, and is equipped with facilities to conserve water and other resources. This facility will provide comfort to not only the members but the wider community.
