I’ve been honored to be asked to preach this weekend in the small city of Vance, Alabama as part of a 2nd year anniversary for the Mercedes Drive church of Christ. Vance is the city where Mercedes Benz built a automobile manufacturing plant several years ago. Located along I20/59 between Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, the area is a rapidly growing commercial sector with many new neighborhoods springing up through the area.
Mercedes Drive was planted two years ago with the support and encouragement of churches throughout Tuscaloosa County. I look forward to spending the weekend with them. I’ve been asked to speak on topics of perseverance and pressing onward in our Christian fight. The congregation is taking this effort seriously and have rented a civic center in Vance for their sessions Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I am honored and blessed to be able to be a part of these activities.
I am excited that my wife, Bobbi, will be able to travel with me. It should be a great weekend! Terry Cagle is speaking in my absence at Eastern Shore Sunday morning and Dave Pahman from Mobile Christian will be here Sunday night.and will do his usual fine job.
