Valentines Day Marriage Committment Sunday 2-14-2016

What a fun day! Eight couples renewed their wedding vows! They came down the aisle to the sound of the wedding march. They came to the arch where Pastor Ballinger had them repeat vows. Such a personal day for these couples. Tears and joy were seen on their faces. Rev. Iric Headley then performed the ceremony for Pastor and Sister Ballinger. Two couples were unable to participate due to illness, and were so sorry to miss the day.
Reading of the Marriage Creed, with congregation participation, was also part of the day.

Homecoming/Pastor B’s 20th Anniversary 10/18/15

imageimageimageimageimage image imageHow exciting that our pastor has been at Clays Mill Road Church of God for 20 years!! He began with a small group that was already meeting in the tabernacle on the state COG campground. They moved to the cafeteria, then to the Bedford stone house on Clays Mill Road. The house had been renovated by the members and it was a good day when they began worshipping there. The present church was built with a full basement for S.S. Rooms and a large fellowship hall. The connected house is used for offices, storage, Bible Study and downstairs kitchen.

Revival began on Oct. 16 with Rev. Butch Paine, Oct. 17 with Rev. Ron Johns and Homecoming with Rev. Jack Whitaker. Homecoming day had a video of past events and Sis. B gave a church history.

A wonderful Homecoming meal was served in the Fellowship Hall.

2015-Ladies to Pigeon Forge

 We always always have fun together, wherever we are or whatever we are doing. We love being together in a cabin in the mountains of TN. We love eating together, riding sleds on a mountain, watching a comedy show (especially when Loretta is on the stage), eating at restaurants or having a BIG breakfast in the cabin and worshipping during devotion time. We look forward to this time all year!
