Every once in a while I find myself drawn to a church for one reason or another. Lone Oak Baptist Church is one of those congregations. This church keeps coming to my mind. You may remember, this is the congregation that has taken Texas Hope 2010 to heart, dubbing the church’s effort Lone Oak 2010.
One of the church’s first goals was to try to invite the entire community to Easter service. When I first encountered it, the church had 59 active members. It was hoping to fill the sanctuary on Easter. Pastor Don Nichols said they did just that. Despite bad weather, attendance to the sunrise service doubled. In the later service, the church had more than 20 visitors. All the visitors’ cards weren’t turned in.
Great news. God is at work at Lone Oak. I trust He is at work in your congregation as well.
