Watkinsville Memorial Baptist Church under the leadership of their new pastor, Rev. Tommy Duke, is in the early stages of revitalization and a fresh start. They recently hosted a marriage enrichment conference at which more than half the attenders were not members of the church. Pray for Tommy and the leadership as they seek to reach the growing community in Watkinsville, GA.
Grace Baptist Church in Monroe has excelled in Church Revitalization and Kingdom Generosity. Under the leadership of their pastor, Rev. Tommy Fountain, the church has increased weekly attendance in worship by more than 100 and has increased giving to both the association and the Cooperative Program. The church recently renovated their office and Sunday School space and have a fresh look for their growing congregation.
The pastor at First Baptist Statham, Rev. Mike Vernatt, has been in that position for one year. His vision and leadership ability has led that church to a new level of life and ministry. Mike led me on a tour of his building and recounted ways that his people have responded as changes were made to bring new life and new ministries into the church. This is a work in progress and yet God is blessing and revitalization is happening. Pray for Mike and his family as they lead this congregation in ministry and outreach to this growing community.
