We're Debt Free!

This is a celebration video that we are sending to Dave Ramsey - it is not edited, but it is a good reminder what God did through us. $1 Million dollars is no small amount and some said it could not be done in Clarkson, Ky. We give God the glory and want to let everyone know.

If you would like more information about Clarkson Baptist there is a link below to the website for some family resources and recent sermons. Clarkson Baptist is a great body of believers. They are loving and accepting, and we have a place for you too. If you are interested in our church I would urge you to come visit, and get ready for God to challenge to more than you can imagine. Until then, the website is a low-key, no pressure way to get an idea of what our church is like.

Long Time...

Here it is March 2014 - the end of March and Kentucky Basketball is still in the thick of the tournament. The Cats just advanced to the Final Four tonight, beating Michigan in ANOTHER thriller. Storybook tournament thus far, beating undefeated Wichita State, then Louisville in last second fashion, and then this evening Michigan in yet another tight game.

I guess the purpose of this post is to say that there are other things besides basketball right now. God is moving around us and people are being drawn to Him - through us, and that's exciting. By us I mean believers, Clarkson Baptist and other churches in the county. God is good and He wants to use us for His glory. It takes strength and courage, yes, but He fights for us if we are willing to be used.

In other news, Clarkson Baptist paid off it's 1 million dollar building debt in December and we finally celebrated to commemorate the event. We had the program scheduled once, in February, and the crazy winter weather forced us to postpone for safety. We ended up doing it March 23rd to great success. We had over 263 people there, we burned the note, filled the sanctuary with smoke, one of the long tenured pastor families came back and spoke, we had a catered meal afterward and all of us enjoyed great fellowship.  It was a good day to be in the Lord's house.

This week, count your blessings for there is much to be thankful for. Be strong and courageous. Look closely for ways that God can use you in the madness of the world around us. God is moving, will you step out in faith?
