Our church, Fellowship Baptist Church of Longview, Texas, continues to grow. Lots of new families have joined our church in recent months, many of them young couples with very young children.
I firmly believe that without new members with growing families, a church is destined to die. I am so grateful that our church is attracting new young (and older) members.
I think a great deal of the attraction to our church is our young, forward-thinking pastor, Reverend Galen Herrington. Galen and his talented wife Angie and their two young children are the type of people who attract other like-minded worshipers. Angie created and maintains our church website, Fellowship Baptist Church of Longview. Additionally, we have two terrific young couples, Jason and Kimberly Kingston who are our Youth Directors and David and Liz Londeau who are our Children’s Church Directors. That, coupled with a variety of music that includes the old gospel favorites and contemporary Christian songs provided by our Music Director, Reverend Dennis Harris, all contributes to a growing church.
Our older members are well-cared for also. Our Pastor Emeritus, Reverend Ben Clayton, is our Pastor to Senior Adults and leads our monthly “Young At Heart” meetings, consisting of songs, a program, and a potluck lunch the second Tuesday of each month.
One of the things I especially appreciate is our church’s decision to now offer the Sacrament of Holy Communion the first Sunday of each month. It’s good to be able to plan on when Communion will be offered and to be able to depend on being able to receive this important Sacrament frequently.
Our church offers Sunday School for all ages each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. Morning worship follows at 10:30 a.m. Children’s Church is held during the second half of Sunday morning church services. Sunday evening worship is at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday night Prayer Meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday nights is also the time for our youth meetings, including Royal Ambassadors (RAs), Girls in Action (GAs), and two Mission Friends groups,
