July 2016   


From:  Pastor Brad
It was June 10, 1995. It was sunny outside, which was a welcome change from the day before when it was raining and flooding.
We had prepared and invited all of our family and friends to our Wedding day. I remember sitting near the sanctuary of the church thinking about the last several years and wondering if this was the girl I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I started thinking about providing for us while we were in school and living in Waco, TX, eight hours away from home.
It seemed like a really good idea the day before,
but now I just wanted to puke!
What I really should have been thinking about was whether she would even say yes!
Fast forward almost 21 years…we have both learned so much. Though, if you compare us to some of our friends and family, we are still newlyweds. I love talking to couples about marriage, but there are some days with the weight of it all I still want to puke!!
Today I want to talk to you about some things you can do that will help build a solid foundation to your marriage





From Assoc. Pastor: Fred Vogel:


Remember to mark down the date of the Senior Adult Conference in Branson, Missouri to be held November 7th-9th. Dallas Holm and the Harpers will be our featured singers and we will get to see the Haygoods Christmas Show. Our speaker for the week will be Dr. Allen Tilly, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Carthage, Texas and our worship time will be led by Larry Wood, worship pastor of the Farley Street Baptist Church in Waxahachie, Texas. Plan now to attend. Please let me know if you are planning to go as we will need to get our reservations in early to assure the best accomodations. The cost this year will be $ 150.00 per person and the rooms will be     $ 132.00 per night to be divided by the number of people staying in the room.

     Our August "Back-to-School" activity for the kids has been moved from August 13th to August 20th due to a needed schedule change. We will share more later and on our Senior Adult Facebook Page.
