Preaching and Teaching
2015 has been filled with fruitful labor!
dear friends! Please forgive me for the long silence since our last
newsletter. The days and months have flown by! The last several months
have brought many opportunities to travel and spread God’s word. Jim has
preached all over Florida including many local churches, Michigan, Louisiana, Mississippi and Virginia.
He got to surprise his friend Sean Doyle in Essex Fells, New Jersey for
his commissioning as Senior Pastor and had the privilege of preaching a
charge to the congregation. Jim went to Panama on a
basketball mission trip in May. Next
month will see Jim returning to Panama joined by several family members
(son AJ, brothers Jeff and John, sons of John – Christopher, Corey,
Casey and Caleb) for a basketball mission doing clinics and sharing the
gospel. Jim will also be speaking in Alton Bay, NH, Gainesville,
FL, Galax, VA, and Essex Fells, NJ among other places this fall. Be sure
to check out his speaking schedule on our website.
Jim’s Bible Study that meets locally on Tuesday nights has been growing
by leaps and bounds. Calvary Chapel Surfside was so gracious to allow us
to use their facility for about a year and a half, but we had to find a
new place to meet that could accommodate all our folks! We heartily
thank our brothers and sisters at First Baptist Indialantic for opening
their fellowship hall to us on Tuesdays. Meeting there has been a
blessing. We will be taking a short break in August after Jim concludes
Colossians, and when we start back in September, we will be adding a
second Bible Study on Wednesday nights in Palm Bay! Thank you also
to our brothers and sisters at LifePoint Church in Palm Bay for opening
their facility to us. Jim will be beginning a study of the book of
Revelation at both locations. If you are interested in attending either
study, please go to our website, click on Bible Studies, and sign up to
receive our weekly Bible Study email.
