FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH | CONTRIBUTED RAMPING UP: Richard Jones, project coordinator (far right), and other crewmembers of First United Methodist Church’s Caring Christian Carpenters pose on a new handicap ramp at Beebe Memorial CME Church. The men took on the project toward the end of 2013 and finished it in January, just in time for the wintry weather. “We were blessed to have them come to our rescue,” said Rev. Doris Gorham, pastor of Beebe. “We have needed a safe handicap access to the church for some time. Their Ministry made this affordable for our church. I can’t tell you how many members and visitors have sung their praises.”  The Caring Christian Carpenters volunteer to do handicapped ramps as their sole community ministry. In 2012, they built more than 85 ramps.
