Hello everyone. How are u all doing? I haven't posted in quiet awhile. Mama Crowder is doing good. She is getting to come back to Church some. She is walking on her leg. God is so good. She is truly a miracle. Thanks for all the prayers.

This will be my last post under this page. I will be deleting it, and replacing it with Walkertown Bible Fellowship Church page.

God continues to bless Walkertown. While our attendance is off, we have had our Fall yard sale, and just had out Christmas Bizaar. God has blessed us and we are making money from our home made soup and canned tenderloin. As you know we had to buy our church. All the money we make goes toward the note. We have been busy as beavers, and happy to work for our Church.

I am proud to say we have a new interim pastor. He is a fine young man. His name is Jonathan Morgan. He is working on a college degree, works, and now taking on Walkertown. If you ever need a home church or just want to visit, we would love to have u at Walkertown..

We need to pray for our nation. People are hurting, and searching for something. What they need is free. Salvation!

What does the Bible say about scriptures on Hope?

Hebrews 11:1 1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Romans 15:13 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Psalm 39:7 7 "But now, LORD, what do I look for? My hope is in you. Proverbs 23:18 18 There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Romans 5:5 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 8:24-25 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. 1 Peter 1:3 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
Amen........

Mama Crowder is doing good. She is at home. She is limited in what she can do.But, if you Mama very well, u will know, she ia a fighter. She will not be down long.

Here is a article I have read before, but so good,

Did you know⁉️The song "It Is Well With My Soul" was written by a successful Christian lawyer Heratio Spafford. His only son died at age 4 in 1871. In 1872, the great Chicago fire wiped out his vast estate, made from a successful legal career. In 1873 he sent his wife & 4 daughters over to Europe on a summer trip on the ill fated SS Ville du Havre. Since he had a lot of work to do, he planned to follow them later. The Ship sank and he lost his 4 daughters with the wife being the only survivor. She sent him a famous telegram which simply read, "SAVED ALONE...." On his return home, his Law firm was burned down and the insurance company refused to pay him. They said "It's an Act of God". He had no money to pay for his house and no work, he also lost his house. Then while sitting and thinking what's happening to him, being a spiritual person, he wrote a song - "Whatever, my Lord, You have taught me to say - It is well, it is well with my soul". My dear friend, a good attitude will determine your altitude. When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say? Do you praise God? Do you blame the devil? A good attitude towards God makes Him move on your behalf. Just sit down and say, "Today, God, it is well with my soul, I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep, I am thankful I am alive with possibilities, I am thankful I have a roof over me, I am thankful I have a job, I am thankful that I have Family and Friends. Above all, I am thankful that I have the Lord Jesus Christ on my side." Be blessed and don't be envious or shocked when others are prospering because you don't know what they have been through to get there (test, trials and tribulation) so thank God for what you have. "Little is much when God is in it. It Is Well With My Soul!" Touch someone's life with this message. If God is for us, who can be against us? A blessing is coming your way, my friend

A change in plans. We will not have the Dedication of our new Church organization next Sunday. Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases, we will have the dedication at a later date. We will let you know when the service will be.
Have a Happy Fourth Holiday.
May God bless all of you greatly.

Hello everyone. Update on Mama Crowder. She is doing good. Working hard in Rehab. We are so happy she is recovering nicely. Still a log way to go, but she is a fighter.
If anyone wants to send her a card, I know she would love having it. Just put it in care of Quillen Rehab in Johnson City.

We are going to our Church dedication on July 12. Covered dish dinner at 12:30pm, then dedication to follow. Please come and eat with us, bring a dish, and join us. We are so excited to dedicate our Church, new name, independent status to God. God is still alive at Walkertown Bible Fellowship Church. Hope to see you at the dedication.

We need to keep praying for our nation. Also, for the Covid-19 virus. Pray a big break through in a vaccine. Also all the sick and the families of the ones that have loss their lives to this horrible disease.

Here is one of my favorite scripture in the Bible.

Psalm 100 King James Version (KJV)

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

[06/22/20]   Update on Mama Crowder. In Quillen rehab. Doing good. Therapy going well. No visitors allowed.Praise God!

Again to Mama Crowder we say:

[06/12/20]   Mama Crowder had surgery Thursday. She came through surgery ok. She has a long road to go, but I know this lady. If anyone can make it , it’s Mama. We will know more later. Just keep the prayers coming. God has this, and Mama is a fighter. God is good all the time.

06/11/2020

To all our Church members and friends of Walkertown Church, I have a prayer request. Mama (Carrie) Crowder was in a car accident Tuesday afternoon. She is
In ICU in Johnson City. She has several fractures. Some really bad fractures.
She is having surgery Thursday morning if
all goes well before surgery. Please pray for God’s healing hand to touch her, guide the surgeon’s hands as he operates. After several surgeries, she will have a long recovery. Please remember Mama in your prayers.She is a solid rock in our church! I know God has this.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Last Sunday we had a memorial service at worship for Raymond. We miss him so much. The service gave us a chance to tell our fond memories of him. Knowing he is in heaven and rejoicing with God makes it bearable for us.

Today we had our Thanksgiving Dinner after church. We had such good food, as always. Carolyn came and joined us for worship,and lunch... It was so good to see her, and her daughter.

This week we celebrate Thanksgiving. One of my favorite Holidays...Such sweet memories of past Thanksgivings, of our parents, and grandparents.The song "Precious Memories" comes to mind. They are precious.

I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving with your families. Let's remember our forefathers who fought for or freedom, and made it possible to live free to worship as we want. These freedoms seem to be slipping away each day.. We need to keep praying for our Country,and our President.

Here is a few scriptures on Thanksgiving and Praise.

1 Chronicles 16:34
34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3:15
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Colossians 3:17
17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Colossians 4:2
2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Ephesians 2:8
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
James 1:17
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
