Archie Jenkins President-Elect of the General Conference gave a report of things going on at the General Conference. First he stressed the coming thing he has observed at our and other gatherings, " A sea of Gray Hair".  If we do not change where is the future of the Church coming from.  He also announced: "Cookin for Missions" and the ministries it supports; the "Extreme Faith, Bold Action" gathering at Bethany College in July 2012; and the Men's Newsletter "The Voice", which is available online and by email.

Medie Still of Guyton Christian Church spoke from Luke 14:25-33. The struggle that we Christians will face in picking up the cross and becoming a Disciple. It may force us to change but the past may come back to haunt us. The struggle we face today is that many of our young people have not been inside a Church and how do we generate interest when they have never been inside. The way we get the message out is not working; because they are allowing other things drive their lives.

We finished with a lunch of Salmon Stew, Barbecue Sandwiches, Potato Salad and Pineapple Cake or Banana Pudding for desert.
