Another Appreciation Breakfast is behind us and, as usual, YOU made it a success! This year we were honored to have 36 teachers and first responders. I heard many “thank you’s” from our guests, so I know a good impression was made. Your prayers, cooking skills and smiling faces all combined to make our public know they are appreciated! Well done, church! — Joe
Our congregation is blessed to help spread the gospel in many ways. One of those ways is supporting Cooper Atkeson and his family as he attends Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock training to preach the word of God in an effective way. This is from his summer report. Please keep Cooper, Meagan and their daughter Mary in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
“It’s been a while since our last update because we have been very busy this Summer!
Immediately after our fourth term ended we temporarily moved to Portales, NM to work with the Third and Kilgore Church of Christ. We would be hard-pressed to find an internship as beneficial as this experience was. Cooper did a little bit of everything – preaching, teaching, youth, worship, and other various guided experiences. The leadership was very supportive and intentional as Cooper was learning and growing. We grew both professionally and personally. This experience was invaluable as we prepare for ministry and determine our field of service. Thank you, Third and Kilgore!
Immediately after our internship ended (no breaks for us, yet) we went to Abilene, TX for Singing School! Cooper has been attending and teaching at the Texas Normal Singing School for a while now. It is one of the biggest highlights of our year. In addition to it being a great ministry by training individuals to promote, support, and grow a cappella congregational singing, it is also a great time of revival and of reunion with friends. The TNSS is a second home for us.
We are currently approaching the end of nearly-two weeks with friends and family in southwest Missouri. This is our break. Fortunately, we were able to attend the wedding of two close friends who met through our college ministry in Neosho, MO before we began our schooling at SIBI. It was really neat to be a small part of God’s work in bringing them together.
We have missed Missouri. We have been able to enjoy the lush forests, rolling hills, and cold rivers so much that we have hardly noticed the flies, ticks, and humidity.
We missed our families even more. It has been a blessing to spend time with both sides of the family and relax. It is nice to see family again before we return to school and hit the studies hard again!
Thank you – you are a blessing to us!”
