Clearview Baptist Church, Travelers Rest, SC

Thank you for inviting our family to sing at your church!  We had a great time, and the people were so friendly!  We love how patriotic the church is and how they honor their veterans.  🙂

We liked all of the wall decorations!

WTBI Share-a-thon 2018!

Thank you for inviting us to sing for the WTBI 2018 Share-a-thon on Saturday.  We had such a good time!  It was a lot of fun.  🙂  And thank you for the delicious fruit basket.  We had to leave and set up at another church right after, and so the fruit gave us much needed energy and some good old-fashioned potassium and other vitamins and nutrients!  🙂

 

Faith Baptist Church, Belton-Honea Path, SC

Thank you for inviting us to come and provide music and preaching for your Sunday evening service!  After Gregory’s sermon, when Brother Tab rose to speak, it ministered to my heart (KariJoy here 🙂 ).  He may not know the specific spiritual battles our family is facing in our lives, but it brought tears to my eyes to hear him state encouraging truths from the Bible that fit them perfectly, as he stood right in front of me, at times peering intently into my eyes when he gave his message that I felt was from the Lord to me.  It was exactly what we and I needed.  We are very grateful for his godly influence in our lives.  We love you, Gloria and Tab!!

DEATH’S DOOR

Our first year experiencing Death’s Door was incredible!  The presentation was a huge blessing and the turnout each of the three nights was awesome.  My two littler sisters, Susanna and Phebe, were even convinced to be angels on the last night of the presentation.  They did a great job!  Our whole family is looking forward to helping out even more next year!

As you can see below, the pillar that I (Luke) am toting was no easy task.  Sadly though, it turns out it was just some foam covered in plaster!  I really thought I was getting somewhere with my workouts.  🙂

Saluda Baptist Association Meeting, Anderson, SC

We had a fun time going to Concord Baptist Church to do some music for their Baptist Association Meeting.  The food was excellent!  It was nice to see people that we knew at the meeting. Thank you, Mr. Dill, for inviting our family!  🙂

Fairview Baptist Church, Greer, SC

Thank you so much for inviting us again to your senior dinner!  We liked the fall time decorations.  You all hold a special place in our hearts.  We had a fun time!  When we took a walk around the church before dinner, we noticed your Prayer Room/Chapel door.  That’s a great idea!

Bible Baptist Church, Pickens, SC

Thank you for inviting us to sing and play at your church’s Fifth Sunday Night Sing! We thought the quote on your pulpit was cool (picture below)—what a great verse to have on a pulpit! 🙂

The Greenville Place

We had a good time singing and playing our instruments for the Greenville Place!  It was great to do it on a Sunday morning with Daddy preaching the sermon.  🙂  The people there are very sweet!

 

Gospel Light Baptist Church, Blue Ridge, GA

We had a great week of vacationing in Blue Ridge, GA! While we were there, we were blessed to find Gospel Light Baptist Church and attended their services. We love the church, and we also had the opportunity to go to their Mission Conference. On Saturday night, someone asked us if we sing, and before you knew it, the church had us singing for them the next morning before we headed home.  🙂  The church was so friendly, and the pastor and his wife are such special people!

If you look closely, there are three stone crosses at the base of the sign! Pretty cool!
