I hope you had a wonderful Christmas season. It is also our with that you have a Christ centered New Year. Our youth came back New Years Eve from the Strenght To Stand Conference in Sevierville, TN. It was a great trip, wonderful speakers (Scott Dawson, Jared Herd) and worship led by Kristian Stanfill. It was also a chance for me to go back to the mountains, where Carmon and I lived for 3 years. Gatlinburg had all the lights of Winterfest on. Our youth loved the view from the overlook at night. So we are already kicking off a new year of ministry.
Starting Wednesday night our Junior High Youth will start GRAPPLE. This is a web based ministry which will include access to a website with devotions, games and recaps of the weeks lessons. We are glad to have Brenda Williams, Steve and Robin Phillips and Danny Swinney leading our small groups.
JH CHOIR: We will start this Sunday with our Junior High Choir at 5:00 pm. I hope all our JH youth will take part in this.
Lastly, Carmon and I want to thank you for being such a blessing to our family. We are truly blessed to be in such a loving church.
