Drum-playing pastor

Dear Church Family and Friends:

Today we are celebrating our 35th anniversary as a body of Christ in Randolph.  God has worked in magnificent ways in those years.  Today is also the initiation of a new internet web-site:  www.bfrvt.org.  On the web-site is a timeline that contains some of the milestones that God has done in the life of our church.  Here is one of the milestones that goes back to June 2007.

A group of churches from the Wilmington, N.C. area came to minister through music in the Randolph area in the summer of 2007.  They performed outdoor concerts in the town park adjoining the baseball and softball fields, and the Gazebo in the center of town.

In addition, a concert was performed at The Baptist Fellowship one night.  During this concert, a special guest was asked to perform – Pastor George on the drums! (Pastor George had never played the drums with a group before.)  Later, at the concert at the Gazebo, Pastor George was once-again asked to joining the band for a couple of songs.

On the morning that the group was leaving, they called the pastor and told him they were on their way out, but had to leave some of their things here and hoped that we could use them.  The pastor was extremely surprised to find the group’s drum set when he arrived later in the day.  The pastor was extremely pleased for the church to have the drum set and prayed for God to send a drummer to play the drums.  After a year, God indicated to the pastor that he should play the drums.  As a result, the morning worship service now includes a drum-playing pastor.

There is a whole lot more information on the timeline and the web-site.  Take the time and peruse the information and give thanks and glory to God for what He has done in the Baptist Fellowship.

May God bless you.

Pastor George
