Psalm 150 says to "Praise the Lord and Praise God in His sanctuary." That is my goal and desire as I serve Him at First Baptist Church of Crossville. To God be the glory, great things He has done! And I am sure He will continue to do great things as we all look to Him for His guidance and direction.
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled
with joy! Psalm 126:3
Serving the Lord with gladness and feeling overwhelmed by His goodness as I continue His work in the kingdom!
To God be the Glory!
