Robert's Reflections

We are off to a great Summer. Last month everyone enjoyed a fantastic Vacation Bible School. Unfortunately, the Family Fun night at the Athens Kiddie Carnival was rained out, so we are having to reschedule. Then a number of our folks were able to make an amazing journey to see the Noah’s Ark Exhibit and the Creation Museum in northern Kentucky. We had 2 successful months for our jail ministry in May & June. Rick Chandler & I were blessed to baptize an inmate last week in the heaviest rain I’ve seen in a long time. We were just as wet as our new brother. The church van is running a route at every service. We had a great turnout for the 4th Sunday Singing & Fellowship last week. I just want to encourage everyone not to miss out on this vital part of the family life at Tanner. Overall, there is an energy and excitement at Tanner that is contagious. Can you feel it?

Our Summer Series is off to a great start. I apologize for failing to publish the list of speakers and Topics until now. We still have 2 spots that are open, but they should be filled on Monday. Last Wednesday, brother Daniel Ridinger encouraged us all with his message on “Joy in the Presence of God”. We are excited to see brother Vance Hutton back at Tanner this Wednesday, speaking on the subject, “Joy in Lifting Up God’s People”.

I know a number of you can’t be here by 5:45 due to scheduling conflicts. But for those who can, we are enjoying some great food and fellowship each week. Remember to join us every Wednesday evening at 5:45 PM throughout the Summer Series. So here is our lineup.
