2017 is coming to a close. For many in LaGrange and Troup County, this was a record breaking year, not just on the industry side, but for personal growth and community growth as well. Many different organizations stepped up this year and got involved in the community, with many different fundraisers and charitable events taking place. The church community continued to grow as well, with different churches reaching out helping hands and trying to spread the love of Christ to anyone with an open heart. Now, here at the end of the year, several churches are drawing together in order to ring in the New Year.
The second annual community wide New Year’s Eve Service will be held at Oakside Baptist Church on Sunday, December 31st from 6 pm to 8 pm. This second annual service will host a number of different pastors and community leaders in order to spread the word of God into 2018. There are several participating churches and pastors including Pastor Cade Farris from First Baptist Church on the Square, Pastor Doug Bingham from Unity Baptist, Dr. Dennis Farr from Freedom Baptist, Dr. Paul Botica from Cedarcrest Community, Pastor Tim Tidwell from Oakside Baptist, Pastor Kenneth Cole from Dunson Baptist, and Brother Aaron McCollough from the Troup Baptist Associations. There will be eight minute challenges with special music in between.
This is a wonderful event that will bring many of our community’s churches together under one roof to socialize, hear the message of the Lord, and bring in 2018 in a spirit of fellowship. Make sure to mark your calendars and head out to Oakside Baptist at 6 pm this upcoming Sunday for the second annual New Year’s Eve Service.
