Using Gifts for God’s Glory

This past Saturday morning, Dave Palmer and Lynn Peacock returned our John Deere 2030 tractor. They had picked it up late last fall to give it some needed repairs. While they had the tractor, they ordered a new fuel tank. They did some modifications to the tractor to make the new tank fit. After they had the tank installed, they found that they could not close the hood. They returned the fuel tank and sent the old tank out for repair. After the tank was repaired it received a seven day process of recoating the inside of the tank. In addition, they updated the gear shifting, replaced the fuel filter, rebuilt the water pump, fixed and repainted the front panel, repaired the PTO indent, and replaced the hoses. They told us they would donate their time, but they did not even take anything for all the out of pocket expense they incurred. It is a blessing to have so many people willing to use the skills that God has given them to help SHCM and ultimately the cause of Christ.

Youth Rally

On April 27, 2013, First Baptist Church in Lebanon is hosting the annual youth rally. There will be games, food, quizzing, fellowship, and outstanding preaching from God’s Word. Evangelist Ron Degarde (pictured above) is our special speaker.

Although the rally does not begin until 5:00, the day will start at 1:00 with approximately 15 teams participating in the final quizzing for the 2013 season. Throughout the afternoon the top five teams will be determined, and they will go into a double elimination tournament. The final quizzes (about ½ hour) for the 2013 championship will be held during the rally that Saturday evening. The rally concludes at 8:30.

If you are a teen within driving distance of First Baptist in Lebanon, I would encourage you to attend. If you would like to attend or would like additional information, please contact the camp or Pastor Anglea at First Baptist.
