Dublin First Baptist Church
We had such a wonderful week last week at First Baptist Church in Dublin, North Carolina! We had a full Sunday with an early morning service, followed by Sunday school, which had Aaron with the adults and the team with the youth group, and another morning service with our kids program. It truly was a blessing to be able to worship in several services in the morning. Our team then enjoyed a meal and presession with the teenagers before the evening service.
Monday night we had a regular service, and Tuesday we did a Family Fun Night! Both services were followed by a teen presession. Wednesday morning, we got to do some of our Irish concert and fun music for the children from the preschool held inside the church. We also had our Cola Wars before our Wednesday evening service, followed by a teen fellowship. Our team had so much fun getting to know the youth group throughout the week, and it was so sweet to see their hearts for God. We also held our kids program every night throughout the week, and we enjoyed teaching the children and spending time each evening with them.
Thursday night was our last night at the church, and we did our Irish concert. We truly were blessed by our time at this church, and we are so thankful for the kindness the staff and members of the church showed us during our week there.

People’s Baptist Church
On Friday evening, we had the special opportunity to put on an Irish concert at Natalie’s home church, People’s Baptist in Greenville, NC! We had such a sweet time during our evening with the church people and were encouraged by their kindness to us. It’s always a joy when we have the chance to minister at one of our team members’ home church!
Friendship Baptist Church
We went to Friendship Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC for the first time as a team, and we enjoyed our time of ministry there! We had a regular morning and evening service on Sunday, with teen and adult Sunday school, ministering in school chapels, and held our kids’ program during the week as well.
Monday, we did a split session with the adult men and ladies, the teenagers, and the children. Aaron spoke to the men, Steph shared a message with the ladies, half the team took the teenagers, and the other half took the children. It was a blessing to serve with the various groups of Friendship.
Monday through Wednesday mornings, Hudson and Aaron had the opportunity to lead chapels for the high school students at Friendship Christian Academy. On Tuesday, Josh and Aaron led the 2 elementary student chapels/
Wednesday afternoon, we held a dodgeball tournament. We had around 80 teenagers and staff come out for a few hours of intense dodgeball. We enjoyed pizza and a short message from Aaron, and had a great time with the kids. After the tournament, we ended our time at Friendship with a regular evening service.
We are so grateful to the kindness of the people of Friendship!

Victory Baptist Church
Last week, we traveled to Macon, Georgia for a week of ministry at Victory Baptist Church.
For Sunday school, the whole team got to be together and listen to Aaron’s message, which is a rare but sweet blessing to us! We then held services for the morning and evening, along with our kids program. We did regular evening services for Monday and Wednesday evening as well.
Tuesday night we had a split men’s and ladies’ session. Steph spoke to the ladies, Aaron shared the Word with the men, and the rest of the team held our kid’s program. Our last evening with the church was on Thursday, and we did an Irish concert for the church.
A special highlight from the week was meeting a dear lady who had gotten saved six years ago when we were there. She trusted Christ after a service in 2017. Since then her husband has gotten saved and their family has continued attending and growing at Victory! We don’t know how God is at work after our time of serving with a church, so this was an especially sweet blessing to us!
We were encouraged by the kindness of the members of Victory and enjoyed our time ministering to them!

Bethany Baptist Church
This past week, we were at Bethany Baptist Church in Brevard, North Carolina. We had such a sweet time of ministering with the church folks along with a special time of catching up with ministry friends.
We held a regular Sunday morning service as our friend and music director at Bethany, Matt Taylor, led our congregationals. In the evening, we had a Family Fun Night! We had so much fun with the games and music, and Aaron preached a message on church unity. After the service, we got to partake in a youth event with the teens of the church. We played broom hockey, ate some pizza, and Hudson presented a challenge to the teens at the end of the night. We had a great time hanging out with the teenagers of the church!
Monday and Tuesday we had regular services, and Wednesday night was our Irish concert. There were several visitors that came to hear the music and ultimately, hear Aaron’s gospel presentation. We are trusting that as the Gospel seeds were sown and planted, God would use His Word to convict hearts and provide further conversation with friends. It was also a treat to have former team members, Ryan McCarty and Stephanie Wright, at our concert! We loved getting to spend time with them afterwards. We are so thankful for continued team friendships after their ministry on our team from previous years.
We certainly were refreshed by our time at Bethany Baptist, and we are looking forward to the weeks to come.
*Special thanks to Bradley Allweil for taking our Irish Concert photos this week!*
