CRBA Update August 30, 2018
Our first CRBA Men’s Rally was a great success for which we give God the Glory. There was great food (thank you Art Mosely from Cornerstone Baptist), inspiring worship (thank you Jon Calloway and the worship team of East Valdese), a great host church, (thank you Zion) and an awesome message from evangelist Don Sunshine. Thank you Gene Kirby and the CRBA Men’s Ministry Team for making this event a reality. To God Be the Glory!
