The Historian

Today was a special treat -- I got to go to lunch with the man that put the steeple on the church.  Emory is a friendly old man that commented he must be looking old because everywhere he goes these day people try to help him.  He has a varied background in business, and has lived in this area since forever. 

The first thing we did was walk around the property together, and he filled me in on the history of the building, property lines, etc.  He grew up Methodist, but was told by his mother-in-law that he should check out the Assembly of God Church.  He said that when he attended he knew he was in church, and has been a part ever since.

I'm looking forward to getting to know the builder generation of this church.  They are an important part of our history which has positioned us for our future.
