I said I would not say to much about this surprise we have in store for everyone Sunday morning at First United Methodist Church, Bennettsville, SC. This has been a long time coming. It’s historic and a long awaited answered prayer. This is the product of obedience and prayer. This is what happens when you keep stepping, pressing, praying and pushing forward to higher ground.

Again, for the record. I’m not saying anything. I can show you better than I can tell you.

Allow me to introduce my new colleague in ministry, Mr. Jackson Stone. Buckle up folks, just wait for it. If you listen closely in the Spirit you will hear a heavenly chorus. I hope to see everyone Sunday morning. Be sure to “pack your pew” and bring all your friends. You do NOT want to miss worship Sunday morning. Taylor Coates

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

This is just a SAMPLE of the joy this wonderful Wednesday has produced. Pictured: both of our CREW groups either singing, ringing, praying and or playing, pictures of church family and friends who joined us for our Wednesday “St. Pattys Day” feast and celebration through song and music with our CREW.

My favorite picture shows my group, “the big kids” kneeling at the altar during our “Tour of Gods House” scavenger hunt alongside our regular Wednesday call to prayer reciting the, Lord’s Prayer. The big kids have been studying the biblical Greek (Lord’s Prayer) while the “Minnows” small kids have been learning the “Stories of Jesus”.

Our next big celebration is scheduled for Palm Sunday as we feature both groups during our Sunday morning worship, followed a meal afterword. For me, Palm Sunday festivities continue with a 4pm District Meeting hosted at the church.

We are having a big time ya’ll. And, the way I see it…If coming to church is not fun…well I’m not doing it right. Stay tuned for more photo overloads. ~~Taylor Coates
