Boiling Springs First Baptist just finished 21 days of Prayer and Fasting. This is a annual emphasis where churches all over world humble themselves and seek God though prayer and fasting. Awake21.org is the website that coordinates the effort. God truly changed my life and the life of our church during this time. At the end of the 21 days we had a church-wide fellowship that featured testimonies and a meal to break the fast. Members young and old shared how God had spoken to them during the 21 days.
Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend Westside Baptist Church assembled for a Beach baptism at Hannah Park. After a short service we went out in the surf and baptized 11. Thanks to all who came and supported those being baptized. The fellowship continued well after the service. After the baptism service I went for a four mile beach run. This was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
