Our Mission is to locate the lost, bring them to Christ, and to help all Christians grow into the stature of the fullness of Christ.
How Firm a Foundation
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said—
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?
“Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by My gracious, omnipotent hand.
“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee thy trouble to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not harm thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.
“The soul that on Jesus doth lean for repose,
I will not, I will not, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”

Each one of us are honored to serve our Lord and you in this capacity. This is a great congregation with good members that love each other and want to serve our God in many ways. You make it a joy to be an elder of this congregation. In any position of leadership there are joys, moments of celebration and of course troublesome times. It comes with the job.
Being a part of the family at Thomaston Road is one of the most wonderful events one can experience this side of the Great Beyond. If you have not become a part of it, we encourage you to do so.
This year has been the most challenging the church has faced in this country, in our life time. COVID-19 came on the scene and it was like nothing our country has experienced. We all have our different beliefs and attitudes toward what or how this thing should have or should be handled. Even among the men serving as elders, we each have different perspectives that range from being cautious to this thing is a conspiracy.
While the physical is a concern, we, the elders, need to concentrate and find ways to help this congregation spiritually and to be the leaders that carry out the call of the Lord. We are assembling to allow those that wish to attend the opportunity to do so. We still feel that we should respect each other - respect the masked seating area and keep our distance. That being said, we know this can be a serious situation for some. If you feel like you could be or know you are affected by this virus, please worship with us on line. If you do not feel good - PLEASE STAY HOME!!!
It is our prayer that this whole situation will soon end. You have to be the judge as to rather you can or should attend. We solicit your prayers as we try to be the men God has called us to be. We often fail but we will do our best to follow God’s will.
Thank you for allowing us to serve you in this capacity.
