We had a great Annual Meeting October 18th. The yearly event was hosted by Lewisport Baptist Church. As usual they made us all feel welcome, and were attentive to all our needs. Pastors who attended received an $150 voucher to attend Shepherding the Shepherd Event in January. In addition, all ministers received a gift made possible by Bro. Raymond Ward. Speaking of Bro. Raymond the association voted to begin the Raymond T. Ward Memorial Outreach Trailer Campaign. Our churches will be hearing more on this endeavor soon.
Also of note, The Gospel Community Church petitioned to join the association. The process for this is: a petitioning church votes to join the association, then presents a letter and application during a semi or annual meeting. A creditials committee reviews all church documents, interviews pastor and church leaders, then will make a recommendation at a following semi or annual meeting. The church is under watch care during the review process. They may be a full participant in associational events, but are not allowed a vote.
