Prepared by Retired Pastor Bobby Lamb, Harmony Baptist Association

***Gould First

  We had a good day at church today with about 60 in the morning service.  Visitors were about 10.  Some of them were family members of the five girls that were being baptized. 

 … Five of the men from the Cowboy church were here too and one preached.  

…We had a church lunch, then all who desired rode the bull they had brought with them.

… We selected a pulpit committee, so soon the search will be on for the man God has prepared for us to have as pastor.

 … Sunday night Criss Prewett brought a good message from John 3:1-14 with 25 in attendance.

  We are having good Wed. night study classes with Jeanne Richards teaching.
