Temple Baptist Church - White House, TN
For the past two months, we have participated when we could at Temple Baptist Church in White House, TN. We have attended on Sundays when I wasn't preaching or speaking somewhere else, and we have been every Wednesday night since October (except the week of Thanksgiving when we were out of town). Our children have been embraced by this church as they have become involved in Sunday School, G.A.'s, R.A.'s, Children's Choir, and Youth Group. They allowed Christian to have a part in the Christmas program presented by the Children's Choir, and John Robert is in Gatlinburg right now on a youth retreat. This church has even survived Preston becoming partners in crime with the pastor's 7 year old son. This church has truly welcomed our whole family and made us feel a part of their body.
Yesterday, I had the privilege to preach in the morning service, and last night Charlotte and I shared about our call to missions and some of what we will be doing in Costa Rica. God is using Temple Baptist Church to reach the community of White House, TN. They took approximately 75 youth on the youth retreat, and the church is growing as people are coming to know Christ as Lord and Savior. H.D. Jones is the pastor and it is obvious that he loves the Lord and he loves this congregation that he is leading.
