SURPRISE!! That is a word that can elicit many emotions. That is exactly what I experienced on Sunday, August 20, when FBC celebrated not only 187 years of existence but also recognized my 50th year in ministry. Monica and I want to express our heartfelt appreciation for the privilege that we have serving FBC. From the surprise of seeing my family walking in together to the videos from our children, former staff members, and special friends, then hearing my children and grandchildren share brought me to tears. The proclamation, plaques, special gift, and my favorite cake truly overwhelmed me. 

That is exactly what life is with our Savior Jesus. Each day is a surprise of His goodness and blessing serving our Lord. Enjoy the journey because time passes by more quickly than one realizes.     

I love our FBC family and “I thank my God for every remembrance of you” Phil. 1:3

Happy September! I recently had back surgery, so things have slowed down for the past few weeks as I’ve been out recovering. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the love, generosity, and kindness you all have shown me before and since my surgery. I cannot thank everyone enough for the outpouring of love through the prayers, cards, texts, meals, gift cards, and so much more! My heart is filled with so much love for my church family, and I thank God for allowing me to serve at FBC Somerville! I am excited to return to church later this month and kick things back into full gear! We have some exciting things planned for the rest of the year, so stay tuned! I can’t wait to see everyone soon!

The youth at FBC Somerville have a jam-packed schedule this semester! The highlight of our schedule will be our trip to Silver Dollar City on October 12-14. The trip will cost $100 and will cover the hotel and park admission. We have seen new people coming to our Wednesday night service, and I am enjoying witnessing the spiritual growth in some of our students!
