I realize we still have a few more weeks of summer, however,  reflecting on what The Lord has accomplished in recent weeks is truly amazing. We’re receiving early VBS reports containing marvelous results, far beyond ‘the numbers’.  Our Summer Missions Ministry touched many lives for Christ which     continues to ‘bare Spiritual fruit’.  Our first EBA

Almost mid-June already!  Vacation Bible Schools are cranked-up and running. Missions Trips/Projects are underway. EBA Summer Missionaries are hard at work all across our county.  With all the bad-news we are bombarded with daily, it’s so refreshing to hear how God is simply using “ordinary folks” who have answered the call to accomplish “extra-ordinary” things

  Why should we engage in mission efforts outside of Etowah County? Scripture clearly indicates that the task that we have been given [the great commission] is not an either/or proposition, rather a both/and task. Simply put, we have been called to take the Gospel to the world. I believe that begins at home and

 May is here! It’s hard to believe we’re moving toward those sweltering days of summer!  The school year is coming to a quick close, as well.  There seems to be a sense of freshness and renewal in the air.  There’s evidence to this in nature. I think Easter has a lot to do with that.
