Two action packed Sundays have past since I have last given a review! On March the 16th, Vision Baptist Church (Alpharetta) celebrated their 8th anniversary with our annual Celebration Sunday! We spent the day in the Word (as we do every Sunday) and praising God for the many wonderful things He has allowed us to see happen over the last 8 years. The rain kept us from our balloon launch and caused us to have our big “family picture” inside, but it did stop us from have a great celebration. We had a cake unlike anything we had ever seen before! It was absolutely incredible! We would like to thank Sweets and Treats by Andria Gardner for putting so much thought, time, and talent into the making of our “Birthday Cake”! It was made in theme of our “Every Verse, Every Nation” which has become the rally call of our church over the years. We have been able, only by God’s grace, to have sent out over 20 missionaries and to preach through 20 books of the Bible. You will see the globe shows the places we have sent a missionary and the Bible is open to Acts 1:8. The red ribbon on the cake represents the “Pledge Ribbon” we have given out to 100s of people over the years as they commit their lives to serving in foreign missions. In our afternoon service we had the joy of hearing Chris Gardner remind us from God’s Word that we have a Biblical mandate to be a church that is known for loving one another. We desire to express that in the way we serve together in our community and the way we continue to minister to our missionaries after they leave our church for the field. We were also excited to have Paul and Debbie Diemer join the church on this Sunday. They and their children (Adam, Alex, and Leah) are a wonderful family that love the Lord and look forward to serving the Lord with our church family. We are excited to have them on board! We also had our annual Chili Cook Off and Dessert Contest. I love this event because it makes us all winners from the great food we get to eat. We have some really capable chefs and Jr Bakers in our church. David Rackley, once again, took the trophy for the best tasting chili. Paul Diemer won most unique. Ryan Murphy won the “spiciest but still is able to be eaten” category with some awesome chili with ground venison. Michael Miller was our Junior Baker winner. Yvonne and Brett Johnson won best tasting. He said he focused on the cake and she took care of the icing on the german chocolate cake. They make a great team. The “Kids from Branon Road” with the help of Pastor Robert Canfield and Kanon Bloom won most creative with their “Kitty Litter Cake”. It may be the grossest thing I have ever seen. I wish I could unsee it.
