Lebanon Baptist Church

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012


Lebanon Baptist Church in Roswell, Georgia was our next stop for Sunday,  January 22, 2012.  For Sunday School in the teen class, the teens and I studied one of the Sons of Proverbs.  Then, for the morning service, I preached from the book of John and seven adults raised their hand asking for prayer as they seek to reach a friend for Christ.  Sunday night was a whole church fellowship with a potato bar and chili.  We had great fellowship with Pastor Paul Mann because of his history of ministering in Iowa and being a board member of Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa.  Please pray that this church will take us on for support in the near future. 

Lebanon Baptist Church has a long history and was established in 1836.  During the Civil War, the invading Union Army tore down Lebanon Baptist Church and used the wood to build a bridge across a river.  In the church office they still have a wooden slave bench from the original building.    Please pray for this church as they continue to reach this growing, affluent community for the Savior.

Oakside Baptist Church

Thursday, January 19th, 2012


On January 15, 2012, we had the privilege of ministering in LaGrange, Georgia at Oakside Baptist Church with Pastor Stephen Curry.  We started the morning with the Golden Gleaners Sunday School Class.  I told the story of Daniel with Rodney and spoke from Ephensians 4 on God’s gift to the local church.  During the morning service I spoke for children’s church with object lessons and a story with Rawley.  Sunday night I presented our ministry to the whole church and preached from John 3. 

This week we spent some time with Christopher Staley who is the son of one of our evangelists with COME.  It was exciting to see one of our COME kids all grown with a family and a burden for the ministry.  He and his wife serve in the church with the Reformers Unanimous.  Please pray that this growing church in LaGrange, Georgia might take us on for support in the future.
