Day 8- Thankful for my Pastor & Church

I am truly thankful to be a member of New Bethlehem Baptist Church in Bessemer, Alabama under the leadership of Dr. William H. Walker, Sr.  This Man of God is more than my Pastor, he is a dear friend to my family. Pastor Walker is straight to the point and he will have order. Many don't like him because of what he believes and he stands for whatever Jesus said!! That's good teaching. 

I have known Pastor Walker all of my life because he was good friends with my grandmother and we lived in the same community. I would always attend the church, but I didn't officially become a member until December of 2000. One month after that, I was out for some weeks because I gave birth to my son. I was able to get back to the church mid-March. I then joined the sanctuary choir. I love to sing so it was only the right thing to do. I have met and become friends with so many and I'm thankful for that. Once my son became of age, he started to be active in the youth department. And, you know that because of my church fellowshipping with my husband's church every Thanksgiving serve, that made it even  My church has helped me and so many others in ways that other churches would never do. Trust me, I know. 

Pastor Walker is not like your normal Pastor. He is real with his teaching, caring and loving. That is one thing I love about him. He is also down to earth. You don't catch many pastors like that. I can go on and on about this, but I think you get my drift.

I'm Thankful for my Pastor and church family.
