Happy New Year! Pray for the Pastor Search Team as they will continue to be busy in 2019 working to call a full-time pastor to lead Springfield Southern. Those serving on the team are Dale Emerson, Team Leader, and Doug Phillips, Chris McVay, Dan Hartman and Evelyn George.
Pray too, for the Building Team as they have begun the countdown to a new first-phase worship and multi-purpose facility at our new location on West Washington Street at Bradfordton Road. O’Shea Builders is our construction team and Evan Lloyd Associates is the architectural team for this project. Ground breaking is anticipated in October of this year with completion of the new building anticipated by mid-year of 2020.
Series of Guest Speakers. Now that David Howard, Heartland Director of Missions, has completed six months of service as our Interim Pastor, we will be hosting a series of guest speakers during January and February of this New Year. The elder leaders of Delta Church have graciously agreed to supply the pulpit during this transition time. They will be preaching a series of messages from Philippians the next two months.
Charles Campbell, son-in-law of the late Charles and Rose Matthews, is coordinating our guest speakers. He and Candi, his wife, helped to found the Delta Church, an innovative fellowship of primarily younger adults within our association of churches.
The following Delta Church leaders will be serving:
- January 6 – Tom Cheshire
