A local mission’s night is planned for April 26, 6 PM, in the BFLC. Howard Long will share about his ministry at the Buckhorn Truck Stop Chapel.   Aemon Shoff will also share about his plan to provide food here in Danville, using a trailer that can be moved around town. Please bring a dessert to share and come learn about these two ministries close to home.

Thank you to all who had part in our celebration services last week. Thanks to those who participated in the dramas, shared their testimonies, led in worship, helped with the Easter Breakfast, and did all the behind the scenes work to help us all celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!
