This Sunday will be a red-letter day in our fellowship. Ron Davis, our long-time Associate Pastor, will be speaking in both services as we celebrate 14 years of our Celebrate Recovery ministry. Ron’s ministry in our church continues to have a positive impact in our church and in our region. He led in the beginning and growth of Celebrate Recovery. Our Covenant Counseling Center is one of Ron’s dreams come true. His quiet and steadfast work and leadership continue to bless this congregation. I know you will want to hear a word from the Lord through Ron this Sunday in both services.
Our Celebrate Recovery ministry continues to bless people in need. We have a new Celebrate Recovery committee which is designed to enhance this valuable ministry. Dr. Gerald Meredith will lead this team as we seek to expand the reach and scope of CR. I know you will join me in praying for CR, it’s leader, Jack Carpenter and all our loyal CR volunteers.
Sunday afternoon brings a great First Baptist tradition as we have our annual church picnic. We will gather this year at Warrior’s Path State Park for a time of inter-generational fellowship, food, and fun. I hope to see you twice on Sunday as we have a great day of worship and fellowship!
