Dear Members and Friends of the Sweetwater Baptist Church:
Blessings!! The week of February 9 – 16 was certainly unforgettable. It was a week of SHIVERING and SHAKING. On Tuesday, February 11th, the CSRA was hit by a historic ice storm that left thousands of residents without electrical power for days. On Friday evening, February 14th – Valentine’s Day, our area experienced a 4.1 earthquake. The center of the quake was seven miles west of Edgefield and was felt over 150 miles away. On Sunday afternoon, February 16th, a 3.2 aftershock occurred. These events remind us of how vulnerable we are. Only God controls the weather and the earth. We are absolutely dependent upon Him.
A special “thank you” goes out to the Sweetwater family for how you reached out and assisted others in the church and community during the ice storm. Those with power helped those without power. You opened up your homes, prepared meals, cut down trees, removed debris, etc. Your hospitality, kindness, and thoughtfulness were truly a beautiful picture of togetherness and an expression of the love of Jesus Christ.
March is going to be an incredible month here at Sweetwater. I can hardly wait until the Wild Game Supper on March 8th. Please, be much in prayer for Hank Hough, King’s Cause, and “Dan the Animal Man”.... (Read More from Pastor’s Paragraphs)
