I trust you had a very blessed Christmas and a very happy New Year. Our December fellowship meeting was a great time of encouragement at the Deep Springs Baptist Church. Our moderator Bro. Roger Dehart passed the “Baton” on to Bro. Johnny Nix the Moderator for 2008. Bro. Randy Lynn will serve as Vice Moderator and I will continue to serve as Secretary/Treasurer for 2008. Please remember us in prayer as we seek the Lord’s will in leading and serving the fellowship this year.
We heard two very challenging messages. First our incoming Moderator Bro. Johnny Nix preached from Hebrews 12:1-3 on “How to finish the race!” A very fitting message as we looked forward to finishing 2007 and continuing in 2008 in our Lord’s work. Second Dr. Sheldon Smith preached from Jeremiah 33:1-4 on “Call unto me” a great challenge to pray and trust God to provide all we will ever need in the ministry and our lives. Thanks preachers for sharing with us the Good Word of God. Also we want to thank Pastor Dale Kidd and all the members of Deep Springs Baptist Church for being such gracious host and providing the outstanding and delicious Christmas Dinner for the preachers, “Thanks again folks.” Our next meeting will be at the Lakeside Baptist Church in Dalton, GA on Thursday, January 10th at 10:00 a.m. where Bro. Clyde Painter is the host Pastor. The scheduled preachers are Bro. George Palmer, Pastor of Ridgeview Baptist Church in Lafayette, GA. and Bro. Ronnie Brown from Gethsemane Baptist Church in Rossville, GA.
