Events & Announcements  

Meet the Pastor Prospect!

A meet and greet will be on Saturday, June 25, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. with light refreshments to meet David and Sharon Edgar, who will be coming on Sunday, June 26, as the prospective ministry team to lead us in the future. They come to us from the Thomaston area where David was pastor of New Harmony Baptist Church.  He was ordained to preach in 1985.  He has extensive experience as pastor of churches in Georgia and Alabama.  He also has experience in counseling.  David has worked with crisis pregnancy centers.  In addition he has been involved in missions.  They have two adult sons – Paul and Alex.

An excerpt from his testimony:  “My vision for a church is a group of people who are growing as disciples, learning to both love each other and their community, actively committed to prayer and missions.”
Please prayerfully consider the step our church is taking next week.  We feel without reservation that God has guided us in this search and brought us to this recommendation.  Please plan to attend to hear this man of God that we will be voting on following the morning service.

Childrens Church Request

We are currently seeking someone to lead children’s church every third month.  This could be one person or a couple willing to share the responsibility of leading children’s church every third month.  We need more volunteers to help with this program which is a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our children.  If you have any questions please see Michelle Sinyard or Becky Perkins.

Summer Mission Trips

July 24-30
We will be partnering with Morganton Baptist Church in the Blue Ridge area.  Let Andrea know if you are interested in joining the mission team.

Donna Cobb will be going on a mission trip to Puerto Rico and Grant Pheil will be going to California on a mission trip this summer.  Please be much in prayer for these as they spread God’s word.
