Rev. Patty Bilyeu (bio) will begin as GRR Staff person serving Areas II and IV beginning July 1, 2017. More details to come on this site and also the April 12 edition of the GRR Newsletter, The Mainstream.
Area II 2017 Area Meeting Summary:
Robert Reynolds, Minister of Worship at Central Baptist Church led a workshop on how a church can use "social media." He ended his presentation with a short video that captured the attention of those who viewed it.
We had quite a few requests for this video from Robert's presentation so we are providing a link where you can purchase it as a resource for your church. In case you missed it, it is a funny, short video that encourages your congregation to invite others to church.
The new Lake Springfield Baptist Camp managers were introduced following a testimony of how God provided resources to overcome two huge challenges facing the camp.
Paul Gibson, Executive Minister of the ABC GRR, preached about the overflowing, never ending, love of God.
We thank our host, Virden First Baptist Church, for their hospitality and service - including the great meal!
