Hey Beloved,

Thanks for the shirt!! I cannot explain to you how excited I am that the Holy Spirit has confirmed the next leg of SV’s ministry together. Thank you church for passing me the baton. I’ve already started running. But, please remind me that this is a marathon, not a sprint.

There are so many exciting things happening here at SV! One especially exciting thing is happening this coming Tuesday, October 13th as we gather for a HymnSing at our Senior Adult Gathering! You do not want to miss this sweet time of fellowship. Save your spot by going to www.sv.church/senior-adults!

Friends, October is Cooperative Program month. Pastor Jeff has lined up some topnotch champions for cooperative missions to fill the pulpit in my stead. You already heard from Dr. French Harmon, President and CEO of the Kentucky Baptist Foundation (KBF). This Sunday our very own church member and Associational Missions Strategist (AMS), Dr. Shawn Edwards, will deliver the word. Following Shawn, we have two of my friends Nate Bishop, lead pastor of Forest Baptist Church and IMB Trustee, and Dr. Adam Greenway, President of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.

We have a lot to thank God for today. Let us rejoice because God is up to something great here, near, and far!!! Buckle up and get ready for the ride.

Pastor Curtis
