"...because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them, and they worked together — by trade they were tentmakers." Acts 18:3. Tentmaker is a title taken by bi-vocational pastors. As such, I am both a pastor and a project manager. I am a pastor of a local congregation of moderate, accepting and affirming people who worship in the Baptist tradition. We call our church "Hope Memorial Baptist" and we are about 40 in number. I am also a project manager of major construction projects for the State of Georgia. My home and church is in rural Coweta County, between Peachtree City and Newnan, with a mailing address of Sharpsburg, Georgia.

Please Pray for Our Church

For some months now, our attendance has been falling off. I know that church attendance is down all over. It seems that we are spiraling ever downward. Our monthly offerings have been falling below our expenses. My treasurer told me that the bank balance last night after paying bills, was just $26.00. Our offering today was over $500.00, however and hope is not lost. Please pray for us.
