2008 has started out to be a good year.  Since the first we have had 16 additions to our membership.  

 

Central Baptist of Balch Springs, Texas has united with Long Creek of Sunnyvale, Texas as of September 1,2007  both memberships have met several times in the past month and the match is uncanny,  Bro. Don Ivey, Pastor  states “It seems we have all known each other for ever”.

 

Bro. Don and Bro. Joe Yates of Central Baptist have known each other for years and are neighbors.  It is both churches desire to see God glorified in this merge.  They would recommend other smaller churches to consider merging which would increase their ability to complete the great commission.

 

Bro. Ivey and Bro. Hudler and all of Long Creek welcome their newest members.
