Rainbow at Bell Ridge

As Don was driving to the church this week, he noticed this rainbow.  It appears that the “pot of gold” was replaced with Bell Ridge Christian Church.   We are grateful that Don stopped his vehicle and took this picture for all to enjoy.

Sharing Jesus’ Love

The Genesis Sunday School Class held a “Blessings Drive By” for two of their class members, Rod and Diane.  They have been homebound for several months and their classmates wanted to share Jesus’ love with them in a unique way.  All of the participating vehicles were adorned with balloons, scripture and messages of love and hope as they drove by Rod and Diane’s home.  

Moonshine Jaunt

On a sunny day in August we gathered in Moonshine for “moonburgers” (and ice cream.)   The weather was perfect for an outdoor lunch and enjoyable conversation.  

Junior High Summer Retreat

Our junior high youth are enjoying a Summer Retreat this week in the Smoky Mountains.  Eleven youth and our two youth ministers were scheduled to attend but one of the youth had to cancel at the last minute.  From the smiles on these faces they are having an awesome week spending time in nature and learning about Jesus.
