Sunday evening, August 13, Marsha and I had the privilege of attending a One Year Anniversary Service at Covenant Hope Fellowship, McLoud. The service was very well attended and followed by a wonderful BBQ dinner. Shawn Crawley, Pastor and his wife Amber, did a wonderful job hosting and presenting the service. We have many reasons to rejoice with CHF in this first year of their existence. Several additions to the church including six baptisms has demonstrated God’s hand upon this relatively new work in PLBA.
Thanks is in order to Immanuel Baptist Church, Todd Fisher, Pastor, as the primary partnering church. At least six other PLBA churches have financially or otherwise supported this new work. Those churches include, FCB, Prague, Tim Emmons, Pastor; FBC Tryon, Bob Fowler, Pastor; Earlsboro Indian, Galen Greenwalt, Pastor; Emmanuel, McLoud; FBC Asher, Dale Griffin, Interim Pastor; Mammoth, Mike Hazelwood, Pastor; Rock Creek, Danny Napier, Pastor; and FBC Wellston, Darrell Sullivan, Pastor. God has greatly used these and other churches to bless Covenant Hope.
Our Mission Partnership Committee is currently praying and assessing the possibility of a new work in west Shawnee (45th and Acme area). If your church would be open to serving as a primary partnering church for such a work, please let us know at the association office. Just as God has blessed CHF, He would also bless another church plant in the coming year. We’ll all join together and pray to that end.
Encouragingly yours, Russell Cook
