Serving at Parchment Valley WV

  

The ABCOPAD Centre Association Mission Team is serving in West Virginia at the Parchment Valley Conference Center. The team worked hard on a number of protects on campus. Here are some pics taken as the team served today.

 

  

It wasn't all work... There was time for singing, prayer and worship worship. Frank, the Parchment Valley Director built a warm fire in the fireplace while Pastor John from the Mill Creek Baptist Church in WV and his partner led us in song and delivered the evening devotions.

 

 

It was grand being together with members of the Liberty BC, Logan’s Valley BC, Mill Creek BC, FRBC Huntingdon and our Baptist Brothers and Sisters in West Virginia spent the early evening in fellowship and worship. Thanks be to God.

Lent at FBC Malvern

Vision Fellowship at First Baptist Church, Malvern, observed the beginning of Lent with the first of this year’s series of Lenten Luncheons. Initiated in 1984 by Pastor Nathaniel Jones with his wife Virginia, now retired, these luncheons continue to be a favored tradition. Each Wednesday during Lent, volunteers provide homemade soup and accompaniments. (They also provide clean-up!  Let’s not forget that!) 

 

 

 

 

The church offers not only food, but spiritual nourishment. Pastor Bob Stradling arranges for ministers from different churches in the Malvern area to speak each week. Prayer, hymn-singing and special music presentations add to the flavor of the luncheons. 

 

 

 

This year Pastor Bob chose The Lord is My Shepherd to be the theme. He featured it in this first luncheon by singing and playing his guitar in a musical version of the 23rd Psalm. Afterward, he delivered a masterful overview of Psalm 23 and its connection to Jesus, thus defining its relevance as the guide for Lent.
