ABCOPAD Serves:
Breathitt County, Kentucky

 

A number of volunteers from Oil Creek Association participated in a recent disaster relief trip to Breathitt County, Kentucky. Lost Creek Free Church flooded up to one foot below the peak of the roof when the water level rose nearly 50’. The team served with Samaritan’s Purse to clean debris and spray for mold. Originally there was little hope for the restoration of this church due to the lack of money. The basement was completely mudded out and cleaned and the sanctuary can be renovated. Others will come after to complete interior work. Volunteers included Susan & Mike Bartlett [Delaware Baptist Church], Dennis Horne, and Karen Miller [Wayne Park Baptist].

Kudos, Tom!

 

Kudos to our region's legal counsel, the right honorable Thomas Tupitza, Esquire of the Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennett law firm in Erie, PA. Tom, who is a member of the Wayne Park Baptist Church in Erie where he grew up, now serving as a Deacon and periodic pulpit supply, was named to the list of the THIRTEEN BEST ATTORNEYS IN AMERICA for 2023.

Lordy, Lordy!

 

Lordy! Lordy! Pastor Bud Russell has come out of retirement (sort of). He began a 12-week assignment serving as Interim Pastor at Christ Memorial Baptist Church, Dover. Their pastor, Jeff Collins, is on sabbatical until January 2. [Pastor Bud continues to serve the region as the ABCOPAD Web Coordinator RMA.]
