I missed the December meeting at Edgewood Baptist Church and ask Bro. Wayne Cofield to fill in for me. He reported that the meeting was a blessing to all that attended. Bro Ernest Groce and Bro. Brian Haney both brought great encouraging messages. We want to thank Pastor Bro. Brian Kurtz and all the Edgewood Baptist Church family for their hospitality and for providing a delicious meal for all the preachers during the fellowship. We also want to thank Sis. Sharon Brooks for supplying the piano music in the December meeting.
Our Next meeting will be 10:00 A.M. January 13th 2011 @ Fellowship Baptist Church the host Pastor is Bro. Chris Peponis. Our preachers for January are Bro. David Flood the Pastor of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Ringgold, GA and Bro. Bud Marteen the pastor of Bethel Memorial Baptist Church in Lafayette, GA.
The current officers will remain in place for 2011. Bro. Randy Lynn as Moderator, Bro. Tim McCulley as Vice Moderator and I will continue as the Secretary/Treasurer. On behalf of these men we would like to thank each of you for the confidence you have shown toward us by choosing us to fill these positions for another year. We humbly ask you to pray for us and the fellowship that we will continue to be lead by the Holy Spirit to be an encouragement to the preachers and a faithful example of God’s Grace to others.
