From Our Pastor

I have spent some priceless time with my family this week.  My wife, children, grandchildren, and extended family are the joy of my life!  And I’m excited about my new grandson that will arrive in a few weeks.
 
It reminded me that I am a blessed man.  Raised by parents who loved the Lord.  Grew up with two sisters who tolerated my mischief.  Married the most beautiful, faithful woman in the world.  Have three children who are teaching their children to love the Lord.  Have pastored the greatest church in the world for over half my life.
 
Thank you, Lord.  You have been good to me!
                 
-Bro. Randy
