|FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH CARTHAGE, TX
Summer always goes too fast. It has been a full one for this preacher. For over a month Katie was home with two of our grandchildren. We added a sixth grandchild in June when Paul and Michelle welcomed Abigail into the world. For me personally the celebration for our 30th year here was very special with all the Cocklin children in for the weekend. But it is time for life to settle back into a more normal routine. We are looking forward to October and our Fall revival. We are looking to build on the success with VBS to build up Sunday School and Sunday mornings and reach new families. There will of course be many opportunities for Bible study and growth. So as you move back to school and the normal activities of life please mark your calendar for church and fellowship.
