KIDS CAMP REPORT:      Well praise the Lord for a great week at the Annual Association Kid's Camp. We had a wonderful group of kids, counselors and leaders. Our Association Children's Ministry Leader and Kid's Camp Director, Macee Wallace, did an excellent job of planning and leading Camp. The children enjoyed a fun-filled, action packed and spiritually productive week.


Justin Nelson, Associate Pastor at Taylorville Baptist Church, was our Camp Pastor. He led us in morning and evening worship times, sharing biblical truth from God's Word on a level the children could understand. His wife, Valerie, led our worship music and did an outstanding job.


I want to thank all those who served as Camp Counselors. Churches all across our Association were represented. You can not have a successful camp without good counselors and we had a fantastic group. Thank you all for investing a few days in the life of a child. God only knows how much this meant to some of these boys and girls.


Of course, you can't have Kid's Camp without kids. This was one of the best bunch of kids we have ever had. I think we set a new record for 3rd graders.


Last but not least, I want to thank the parents who entrusted us with their children for the week and the churches who paid the way for so many of the kids to go and have this amazing experience.


Yes, I went down Wet Willie (water slide) again and IT WAS FUN! In fact, the whole week was fun and fulfilling. Best of all, 9 young people gave their lives to Jesus. Several of them have already followed the Lord in baptism in their local church. Those nine children are worth it all!


THANK YOU to the churches who gave snacks and money for snacks. You help us keep the cost down to a minimum. That is a HUGE help and blessing.


We will start planning for Kid's Camp 2018 in (January) five months. Yep, we start early so everything will be great for the kids and counselors and pleasing to our Lord. We believe Camp deserves our very best!


MEGA TRAINING CONFERENCE: Mark your calendar and make plans to attend the Annual Association Mega Training Conference on September 14th at Jemison First Baptist Church. We will begin at 7:00 P.M. and conclude promptly at 8:30 P.M.


Pastor, we have a very special class for you and your key leaders led by Daniel Edmonds and Larry Hyche of our Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions. You know that anything Daniel does is top notch. This is brand new so don't miss it!


                                                                                       Laborers Together,


                                                                                           Bro. Larry

If you decide to prayer walk at a school, please use the Form Letter provided on the WMU page of this website to advise and request permission from the principal.


You can go to the WMU page to also print a Prayer Guide Sheet.
