God Is On The Throne No Matter What Happens On Election Day

by PGBC

I can hardly believe this year is almost over! As November arrives I immediately think of Thanksgiving and the reality that we should be thankful every day. As Thanksgiving approaches start now asking God to open your eyes to all the things you take for granted daily and be thankful for them.  I think of […]

I Am Privileged

by PGBC

Recently, Nike announced that it would use Colin Kaepernick as the face of the 30th anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign. Nike is free to use whomever they wish to use to promote their products, but I am just as free not to use their products if I so choose.  I am not going […]

New Pavilion And Basketball Court

We are in the home stretch for our fund raising toward our new pavilion and basketball court.  Thanks to the generous offer of matching gifts we are creeping ever closer to our goal of raising $50,000 in gifts or pledges that will be matched by another $50,000.  These matching gifts will take us to the […]

As I write this article it is over half way through the month of July and August is approaching. For Janice and me, the month of August comes with excitement and some sadness for the passing of time. You see in August, we will move Brooks into his dorm and he will start college. One […]

What Will The Preacher Say When That Day Comes?

by PGBC

At the writing of this article I am preparing to go do my second funeral in Lincolnton, GA in less than two weeks.  Two sweet, godly ladies, in their 90’s have been promoted to Heaven and I have been blessed with the honor of presiding over their funerals.  While the trip there and back is […]

I Can Only Imagine

by PGBC

As I write this article the movie I Can Only Imagine was released this past weekend.  The movie is based on the incredible story behind the song of the same name.  I still remember how this song became very popular on Christian radio and was being sung in churches including the church I was serving […]

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 […]
