Today it is our joy having Thurm and Lisa Payton as our guests. Thurm served as Holt’s associate pastor from 1997-2003. His wife was involved in the music ministry as well. The Paytons invested part of their lives into HBC for which we are eternally grateful. Thurm will fill the pulpit today in my absence, and Lisa will be on the piano. Please greet them and express your appreciation for their ministry.
Summer seems the most convenient time for many to take vacations, so Sue and I are taking advantage of this time. We are thankful for the church giving us this opportunity. Pray for us please. These are unusual days and shepherding during this pandemic has had it challenges. While we might not know how ministry will look this fall – God does, and he will guide and sustain us through this time. He is faithful. Please pray for Paul, Tom and I as we seek God’s direction during these days.
