We owe a big thank you to Pastor Alan Garbutt at Faith Baptist Church in Williamsburg, Virginia. We certainly had a wonderful and memorable November meeting; the first snow of the year. The church roof was coming down, but despite all of the excitement, God gave us a special time together. We heard preaching from both ends of the spectrum: Ben Webster starting out in the ministry, and Tony Facenda, a faithful servant of God for many years. God blessed and used both men in a great way.
We look to (believe it or not) our December meeting already! It will be at Patuxent Baptist Church in beautiful St. Mary's County, Maryland. We are going to treat you and your wives to a special and delicious Southern Maryland meal at 9:30 a.m.
Lunch will be a Taste of Southern Maryland:
- Fried Chicken
- Crab Balls
- Stuffed Ham
- Green Beans
&...A Very Special Surprise.... Exotic Wild Game!!!
Pastor John Yeatts in Tappahannock, VA will be preaching. PBC will be in a Prayer Revival with Benny Beckum, who will preach on prayer at our fellowship as well.
We'd love for you to bring your wife with you. To get into the Christmas spirit, we have a special gift for each wife that comes. Please let me know if you would like to come early and need help with accommodations at
Country Inn & Suites
