Thankful for Perry Holleman!

We thank God for the ministry of Perry Holleman as he retires at the end of August following 50 years of ministry to date in the Lord’s churches and nearly 18 years here at First Baptist Church.  We pray for Perry and Lib and their family as they journey with the Lord into these retirement years!   Christian songwriter, Ken Medema, wrote a song to honor Perry and Carol Ann Hoard used it as the sound track for a music video.  See it here:
