In cities across Alabama, Friday night football games are one of the most popular parts of the week. That’s certainly true of Grove Hill, where the Clarke County High School football team recently won the 2A state championship.

But for some in Grove Hill, Friday morning breakfast has become even more popular. Because since Grove Hill Baptist Church began feeding football players at Clarke County High and Clarke Preparatory School on game day before school, 14 players have professed a new faith in Christ.

Deacon’s prayer

It all started last summer when the church’s senior pastor, Kyle Routzahn, asked the deacons if there could be one in the church every day to pray about what God wants them to do to reach their congregation. It wasn’t long before one of those deacons, Brandon Garrick, felt God begin to put something on his heart.

“When I grew up playing ball at school, we always had a church that did that work and invited the football players to breakfast every Friday morning,” Garrick said.

He mentioned it to a friend — Eric Neel, defense coordinator at Clarke County High — and Neel told him there was no such thing for players.

“Some moms used to do that, but nowadays there wasn’t anyone to feed them on game day,” Garrick said.

To plan

Garrick and Neel, a member of the Grove Hill Baptist church, put their heads together with Routzahn and Austin Bedwell, the church’s student pastor, and came up with a plan. They invited soccer players from both schools, recruited people to share devotionals each week, and figured out how to feed up to 100 people breakfast.

Some of the older adult members of the church helped out with fresh eggs, Routzahn said.

In the first week they had about 45 players. Soon they were averaging 80 to 90 every Friday morning, including cheerleaders and band members.

On the way they saw God’s work, said Routzahn. He gave the players his own testimony of encountering Jesus while in rehab at the age of 25. Garrick also shared his testimony of coming to faith at age 26. Jeremiah Castille, who played in the NFL in the 1980s, spoke one Sunday and they invited the football teams to the service.

Along the way, Routzahn said he could see God “disarming them.”

Garrick saw the same thing happen. Many of the players had never been regular churchgoers, but he had conversations with some who were willing to give their lives to Christ. When Routzahn preached the gospel, 14 football players responded.

The leaders were given a study bible with their name and number on it for each player who attended breakfast.

Garrick said none of this had anything to do with them – “first it had to do with prayer; Our deacons began to pray and God began to move.”

And it went on.

Keep going

As both teams advanced to the playoffs, breakfast continued. Clarke Prep lost in the first round, but Clarke County High kept winning. They would win, and there would be another breakfast at Grove Hill. Garrick said he thinks it’s a “god thing” for them to keep winning so the breakfast effort can go on.

He said the players agreed – even mentioned it in news interviews after they won the state championship game in December.

“When they spoke after the game, the first thing they said was, ‘The only reason we’re here is because of God,'” noted Garrick. “The children said God did not want this ministry to end. I truly believe that this state game and this season that we just had with this football team was a godly thing.

Garrick said it has been a blessing to see the students grow spiritually and see the effort grow. He said it was also a blessing to see how it brought the two schools together.

“As Clarke County rolled out of town with the buses, Clarke Prep stood on the street and cheered them on as they pulled away,” he recalled.

To take note of

Routzahn said the community is also taking note, and a number of people have invested in the service with donations. The mother of one of the players stopped him at the store one day and said her son had come for breakfast.

“She said: ‘Please keep it up,'” said Routzahn.

At the moment they are working on making breakfast for the basketball teams and other sports in the schools.

Bedwell said he was excited about the opportunity to gain entry.

“We’re always looking for ways to achieve them, and I had no idea how big an impact such a simple idea could have,” he said.

see a change

Clarke County High head coach Stacy Luker said after the ministry began, “You could just see a change in the players many of them for the better.”

“I just really appreciate what Grove Hill Baptist has done with our children and our school,” he added. “It was a nice thing to see.”

Routzahn said it has been a great encouragement to the church who have been searching for what God has in store for them in this post-pandemic time.

“It started with prayer,” he assured. “And I would recommend it to anyone who thinks it’s something they could do in their own community.”

The Missoula Alliance Church collects an annual Christmas Eve offer to fund the many community services it sponsors.

KGVO spoke to lead pastor Micah Dalbey this week after announcing on Sunday that the congregation had nearly doubled the target from $ 48,000 to over $ 81,000.

Dalbey explained the annual offering at the Church’s two Christmas Eve services.

“For about 14 years, as a church, we have used our Christmas Eve service to receive an offering that is solely intended to bless our community and to show them love in a practical way by addressing the needs we see in our community most immediate, ”said Pastor Dalbey.

“Dalbey said one of the first ministries the community was offered actually offered free car repairs to families in need.

“It all started with the MAC Garage, a mechanic’s shop that we have here on our property that does free minor car maintenance and various other things for single parents,” he said. “We also have certain partnerships with the public schools in which we do everything we can to help and bless these families and teachers and meet the needs that we see there.”

In addition to a special Foster Family closet that distributes free clothing and supplies to foster families, Dalbey said the church also serves the refugee communities here in Missoula.

“We also recently began a service to assist refugees relocating to Missoula and meeting their practical, cultural, and spiritual needs in every possible way,” he said. “Thanks to the generosity of our church on Christmas Eve, we were able to buy a small house in the heart of Missoula, and our heart is not removed from the church up there on the hill, but embedded below in the church that is and is like Jesus and how exactly he modeled this presence among the people. “

Dalbey said that due to COVID concerns, the church (like most churches) is no longer “passing the offering plate” but has wall-mounted offering boxes to raise funds in addition to offering online donations. He said he was overwhelmed by the generosity of the church this Christmas Eve.

“We set the target of $ 48,800, and that’s pretty typical Christmas Eve supply target, which is the projected operating budgets for those four or five different service areas, if you want to call them that,” he said. “So we threw out $ 48,800, and people gave $ 81,691.85 in response to what we say, God thank you and wow, how cool! But we are also just curious what God wants from us, what we are not currently doing in order to further advance his work of redemption in our city. “

The church is at the top of Hillview Way.

ENID, Oklahoma – Heads bowed Saturday morning as attendees at Enid’s annual breakfast in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. were asked to pray for unity in the city and nation.

Taking a page from their own Sunday services, clergymen of diverse racial backgrounds from half a dozen Christian parishes in Enid led morning prayers at the Central Assembly Church of God.

Norris Williams, pastor of the Grayson Missionary Baptist Church, asked God to unite Enid in his government, churches, and city in honor of the legacy of Rev. King, who was a pastor of an Atlanta Baptist church.






Greg Camarena, pastor of Lalesia Maranatha Church, presides at the Central Assembly Church of God on Saturday, January 8, 2021, during the annual Enid City Prayer Breakfast presented by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday is organized, a Prayer for the Nation Commission. (Alexander Ewald / Enid News & Adler)


“We come from different religions, we come from different races, we come from different backgrounds … and yet you brought us together of your own accord, and we thank you for it,” Williams said in his sermon. “We pray today, Father, for unity. Lord, you left us with this one commandment that we love each other. And Lord, when we have unity and love, we have everything we need. “

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission selected We Are America as the theme of this year’s celebrations.

“Our goal is to come together and show that we are a united front, and I believe that is the goal of the gospel,” said Bradley Barrick, chairman of the MLC commission. “As Christians, our faith is inclusive for everyone and we want people in this community and our city to feel the same as everyone else.”

The deputy chief of operations at Vance Air Force Base, the main speaker that morning, quoted King as saying, in his famous 1963 letter from Birmingham Jail, “but was the thermostat that changed society’s morale.”

Major Ian Hocking also said he knew many people, including from his own younger generation, who wanted to get rid of “this American way of life”.

“It’s easy to be dissatisfied when we don’t feel like our life, family, neighborhood, or community is enjoying the benefits of the American Promise,” he said. “And although a dream can seem like a nightmare, as Martin Luther King once put it, it’s still worth striving for.”

The prayer breakfast serves as the starting point for the city’s public holiday commission, which annually celebrates the federal holiday, which celebrates the king’s birthday.

This year’s nationally recognized MLK Jr. Day takes place on January 17th, two days after King’s actual birthday.

Next Saturday there will be a march in honor of the late civil rights leader who is known as the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference today for spearheading protests in the south against overt racial and social injustices such as racial segregation and labor exploitation in the 50s and 60s Years.

The 11-strong Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Enid City Vacation Commission wants young people to consider the climate of their school, community, and nation as they participate in the letter contest as part of the city’s long-standing celebration.

In 1964 he received the Nobel Peace Prize before he was murdered in 1968.

The walking tour begins at 1:30 p.m. at the Stride Bank Center, followed by a ceremony at 2 p.m. The free program and dinner start inside with inspiring speakers, music, and competitions and awards for diversity. The event center provides catering.

WARREN – After the seven-day celebration of Kwanzaa ended over the weekend, a Warren church held a special program to summarize the African American holiday.

Members of the Sisters of the Voices of Micah 6: 8 at First Presbyterian Church in Warren hosted a live program on Sunday, which was also broadcast online, to provide an overview of Kwanzaa. A kwanzaa table with candles, books and other items was set up in front of the church.

Kwanzaa is celebrated from December 26th to January 1st, with an emphasis on celebrating community, family and culture. It was founded in 1966 to help African Americans reconnect with their African roots and heritage.

Adrienne Adams of the Michigan Black Presbyterian Caucus, who was a youth advocate and educator, spoke remotely during the program. She said that she and many people celebrate Kwanzaa to pay tribute to their African ancestors.

“There are seven principles of Kwanzaa, one of which is marked and a candle lit each day. The first day is “Umoja” for unity. We seek unity in our families, our churches, our fellowship, and the world. What will each of you do to unite God’s people? “ said Adams.

She said the black candle in the middle represents the people, the red candles represent the blood of the ancestors, and the green candles represent the earth, life, and the ideas and promises for the future.

Adams said the seven virtues are rooted in traditional African philosophies of life. The seven are unity, self-determination, joint work and responsibility, cooperative management, purpose, creativity and faith.

Pastor Betty Angelini, Rev. Betty Angelini said the table was set up by the Sisters of the Voices of Micah 6: 8 so that the parish could learn about Kwanzaa and its traditions.

“We got to know our own belief traditions. The Voices of Micah committee put this together so we can learn about other traditions so we can build new relationships over the coming year. We want you to open your hearts to new ideas and new relationships. “ said Angelini.

She said there will be opportunities for growth and service in the Church in 2022.

The Voices of Micah has partnered with Free Indeed Ministry, a non-profit organization.

Free Indeed is led by Rev. Walter and Martha Allen, who care for the prisoners and those who have returned to society after their imprisonment. The focus is on education, family and relationship building.

“We plan to work with Walter and Martha and go side by side to change the lives of those who are currently or have been in prison.” said Angelini.

SOUTH HAMPTON – The board of directors of South Hampton Baptist Church is pleased to announce the completion of a $ 25,078 project to restore the exterior of the church building in central South Hampton.

South Hampton Baptist Church (SHBC) is a New England church dedicated to the person and ministry of Jesus Christ and his message of good news to all people for all time: “Where the doors swing open on the hinges of love.” (SHBC) completed work on a $ 25,078 project to aid the exterior preservation of their church building that included exterior repairs and a repaint of the entire building, which now has a beautiful red door and other accents that complement the exterior of the building make it more attractive and greeting.

Commenting on the project, Pastor Jeremy Pataro said, “The Church is grateful for the guidance and care LCHIP has graciously given us during this wonderful undertaking to preserve and beautify this Church of early American history and its artifacts. We are also grateful for all the active support and funding that our great community has given us. “

From the end of 2019 to 2021, all members who took on this task with us did it with the utmost professionalism and integrity. We wanted to encourage the South Hampton community by restoring the exterior of the South Hampton Baptist Church building, and now the exterior repairs and painting are complete. From fundraising for polar bears, to doing hard manual labor to offset church costs, to having our families struggling amid the fundraising of the Covid-19 pandemic, God made us do it and guided us through it. Good job everyone.

Special appreciation and thanks go to the NH Preservation Alliance, the LCHIP team and those they work with, Lionstone Construction Pro, the church council and the people and finally all of the members of the city and community at large who have served us throughout Time have supported way.

Grant recipients must raise at least one dollar for every dollar made available by LCHIP. This project used approximately $ 12,000 in donations from other sources, including various donations from members and visitors to the Church and the community as a whole, as well as through fundraisers and volunteers who put their time and energy in tackling the many arduous tasks.

About the South Hampton Baptist Church

SHBC is a blessed member of the American Baptist Churches of Vermont and New Hampshire (ABC V / NH). SHBC has existed as a church fellowship since 1772 and will celebrate its 250th birthday in autumn 2022. South Hampton Baptist Church is one of the oldest churches in the state of NH. It has a very well documented history, wonderful historical artifacts, and interesting insights into the life and development of early America from the 18th to the 19th centuries. The Church is consecrated for all time to the person and ministry of Jesus Christ. The Church has done this by engaging in many longstanding ministries at home and abroad that we are grateful to have had the opportunity. One of those close jobs is to preserve and look after our historic building and its artifacts.

About the New Hampshire Land and Heritage Investment Program

The New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program is an independent government agency that was created by law in 2000. LCHIP’s legislative mandate is to ensure the continued contribution of natural, cultural and historical resources to the economy, environment and quality of life in New Hampshire. LCHIP does this by providing appropriate grants to New Hampshire communities and nonprofits to help conserve and maintain the state’s most important natural, cultural, and historical resources. The program has provided 499 grants that have helped conserve approximately 294,000 acres of land for food production, water quality, environmental values, timber management and recreation, and has supported 301 projects to rehabilitate 286 historic structures and sites.

Grants were awarded in all parts of the state and in 176 of New Hampshire’s 234 parishes. Fifty million US dollars in government funding has resulted in a total project value of more than 289 million US dollars. The money for LCHIP grants comes from the fees for four documents that are recorded in the register of deeds in each county of the state.

A church in Fort Worth opens its doors and offers free COVID services to all those in need.

The Church’s pastor said they are trying to meet vaccine and therapeutic treatment needs in low-income communities by bringing ministries to an appropriate location.

With cases rising, the New Mount Rose Missionary Baptist Church is offering free COVID tests, vaccines, and monoclonal antibody treatments in hopes of helping as many people as possible.

“We will hopefully help save the lives of some people,” said Kyev Tatum, pastor of the New Mount Rose Missionary Baptist Church.

It started as a mission to educate the Morningside community about the virus and vaccines, but New Mount Rose Missionary Baptist Church leaders quickly realized the need to have access to COVID-related services.

“They trust us to give them the right stuff, so come through these doors before you go to JPS or any of these clinics knowing that Pastor Tatum is here 365 days a year,” added Tatum.

In honor of one of its founding members who died of COVID-19 earlier this month, the Church has partnered with USA Mobile Testing to provide free COVID tests, vaccines and boosters, and a limited amount of monoclonal antibodies, to anyone who shows up make treatments.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our community a glimmer of hope,” said Tatum. “A lot of them don’t know about the treatment. Now they hear that New Mount Rose has this monoclonal antibody treatment, so the question is, ‘What is it?’ So we can tell them and enlighten them. “

But as in many other infusion centers, the range of antibody treatments available is extremely limited.

You have less than 25 doses left and more than 100 people on a waiting list are trying to get help.

“We know that we can’t get more until Tuesday when the delivery arrives. We pray. But there shouldn’t be a gap in the first place,” said Tatum.

Kasandra Ewing is from that community. She said it was difficult to reach some people, especially the elderly, to let them know about available test sites and services.

“They’re not online, they rely on the community for support so they don’t know where to go unless someone tells them or they see it on the news,” she explained.

Services have only just started this week, but the Church is already seeing more and more people coming for tests and treatments. They tested about 50 people on Thursday.

“We need an entire village, we need everyone who does their part to slow the rise of the virus,” said Ewing.

The Church also hopes to offer monoclonal antibody treatment at home once they receive more doses.

Pastor James Arter of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Leechburg has seen the impact of the church’s ward cupboard on families and individuals.

Years ago a young girl came with her father to buy clothes. She was so taken with the project’s mission that she later returned with her own clothes to donate.

“She wanted to hang the clothes by herself,” said Arter.

It was one of those moments that showed Arter and longtime volunteer Kathy Munko that the Church is doing its job. Arter said he couldn’t believe how quickly time has passed since the church opened its ward closet in April 2012.

“That brought the church together,” he said.

The aim of the initiative is to provide people in need with clothing at an affordable price. All items cost 20 cents. The closet was open twice a year until 2015, when the church opened every third Saturday of the month.

Arter said most of the calls the church had received were from organizations helping a foster child or from grandparents raising children.

The proceeds will be donated to a local nonprofit or organization each month, Munko said. The Church holds a meeting in January to select locations to receive donations. The proceeds went to the Leechburg Food Bank, Leechburg Volunteer Fire Company, Lower Kiski Ambulance Service and more.

“When you buy clothes, you give something back to the community,” said Munko.

Items are rotated to ensure everything is seasonally appropriate. The clothes are sorted by size and gender. Shoes, handbags and winter essentials such as gloves and hats can be bought.

An estimated 20 volunteers come to help sort clothes and manage the closet on Saturdays it is open, Munko said.

“We all love what we do because we help people,” she said.

Arter said the church saw an increase in attendance at the wardrobe in November. He said 2,000 items had been sold. The closet stays full because donations are always pouring in, he said. Children’s clothing and coats are the most sought-after items.

“We expect a large turnout at this time,” he said.

Donations of clean, carefully used clothing, purses, shoes, coats and winter utensils can be placed in the basket on the porch of the church.

Mary Daramola, the nurse responsible for medical care, said she was pleased with the number of people who turned up for medical advice and treatment. She found that over 200 people were cared for during the medical exercise.

“We did some minor medical exams like malaria, sugar and blood pressure tests.

After the awareness-raising talk, the SJF team strengthened the women with skills such as making liquid soap.

“We believe that if you take this empowerment seriously, it can be a livelihood for you,” said Folajuwon-Banjo. “It doesn’t cost a lot to set up a company like this. With just one token from N4500, you can start it up and put food on your tables. “

Christ Anglican Primary School Principal Mr. Olayiwola Agunbiade appreciated the RCCG and SJF for reaching out to their school and community. He stated that the medical care will benefit the people and the books will help the children in their academic education.

“With the books donated, more students will come when school resumes for the second semester because they believe this program will be an ongoing one,” said Agunbiade. “I pray that God will give the organizers the strength to continue this program.”

The school’s assistant director, Ms. Taiwo Arogundade, said she was delighted with what the Church and Foundation have done for her. She explained that the books and other items donated to the children will help them study for the next semester.

“We pray that God Almighty will give us the opportunity to experience this kind of gesture next year,” said Arogundade. “And for the people who organized this program, God will enrich their pockets.”

During the program, the children were engaged in songs, dance, drama, and other social activities.
