Remembering Billy Graham

by PGBC

I have just finished reading the last book Billy Graham wrote. He was 93 and still pretty active and with the help of Franklin, his son, he gave us his thoughts about old age, death, heaven, and how to deal with them.  He was able to tell people about Jesus and his love, his death, […]

Turn Over A New ‘Leaf’ And Be A Part Of Our “Tree”

by PGBC

First, let me thank everyone who contributed to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Our “Thank You” goal was reached as we collected a little over $10,000. That is wonderful news. With so many other offerings and gifts during Christmas we are glad to reach this goal. Now, it is time to think about our Annie Armstrong Easter […]

We Are God’s Plan To Reach Gilmer County

by PGBC

We are blessed in our association to have Claude Mathis as our missionary. Claude genuinely has a heart for God’s people, the church, and the lost around us. I have worked with numerous associational missionaries through the years, but I have to say Claude is at the top of the list.  His heart shows in […]

Only Jesus Can Fill The Void

by PGBC

Janice and I just got back from Pigeon Forge, one of our favorite places to go.  In the last 29 years there have been very few years that we haven’t been up there at least once during the year.  Of all the times we have been this was the first time we went this late […]

Can You Hear Me Now?

by PGBC

You probably remember the old commercial where the guy walked around with his cell phone asking, “can you hear me now?”, he was demonstrating how well the signal was with his carrier.

Screech, errrrrr, buzz, screeeeeeeeeeeech!

“This is a test of the emergency broadcast system, this is only a test!” How many times have we heard that over the years, and just when you didn’t expect it? The Emergency Broadcast System was designed to alert us of potential danger, and to clear the airwaves for a special bulletin. If the alert […]

I say it every year, but I can’t believe another year has gone by already! We are about to turn the calendar on 2017 and welcome 2018. My son will turn 18 this month, will graduate high school in May and will start college in the fall. I am about to know what it is […]

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

by PGBC

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” In a recent conversation I had it was brought up that each year stores begin displaying Christmas items earlier and earlier. The season’s beginning has moved from right after Thanksgiving, to right after Halloween, and even earlier in some stores. By pushing the season earlier it seems […]
