In the words of Margarette Bell-Miller, "We are a small church with a fresh start. Every time we turn around, the Lord keeps on blessing us." He truly blessed our church family with an amazing Church Dedication Weekend. We brought the weekend to a close with a spirit-filled message through song and sermon from Dr. Robert Lee McGowens and the Galilee Baptist Church Family from Charlotte, N.C.
We were all fortunate to receive a mighty word from a mighty man of God, Rev. Dr. McGowens, who is originally from Travelers Rest, S.C.
Pastor McGowen’s message was for everyone
– LIVING ABOVE AVERAGE. We all have been given opportunities for God to use us. Whether it is to go back to school, to change your career or to get good grades. Pastor McGowens taught us that above average people allow opportunities to outweigh the threats. You just might succeed but will never know if you do not try.
Also, Pastor McGowens taught that how you perceive yourself will determine how you face your obstacles. We all will face challenges, however above average people learn to not trust in facts but to trust in faith. When the facts have you believing that you are not worthy, you will not make it, or you will not get out of your situation believe what Number 13: 30-33 tells us, all things are possible if we just believe.
