Morgantown—First Baptist Church of Morgantown’s Clara Lee Circle helped raised funds for the church to build a handicap assessible fellowship hall. The “Fellowship Hall built by God and His Children” was completed and dedicated in July 2015, and by March 12 of this year, the church has raised nearly $342,000.
The Clara Lee Circle, organized in honor or Clara Lee Matthews and her husband Harold, missionaries to the Philippines and members of Lyndon Baptist Church in Louisville, first were inspired to build the fellowship hall after being challenged at a business meeting to make the Woman’s Missionary Union more visible and accessible. Before the fellowship hall, they had been meeting in the church basement.
