Jacob Baccus followed our gifts of a Sunday donut and a worship devotional sheet with conversations with international employees in the rental room.
And then:
What do —snow — 12 degrees — skis and snowboards — Sunday — church bulletins — hearts turned towards God — and 19 people — have in common?

An outdoor worship service at the top of Castle Run at Ober Gatlinburg!

January 3rd’s cold temperatures made for a close circle as we gathered to worship. It was one of our more joyful services as each made the choice to celebrate their love for God in such conditions. Candice Coleman couldn’t play her guitar but she did lead us in praise songs.
The cold also made for a short sermon on Bill’s part!
Thanks be to God for worship that makes us stronger in our faith and gives God praise!
