First Baptist Chuch Sulphur Springs will be the host for Rehoboth Baptist Association’s Fresh Encounter. Fresh Encounter is a series of worship events that were scheduled last February. Only one of three worship events took place. Freezing rain created travel concerns for the churches of Rehoboth that include a seven county area. Two of the worship events featuring Dr. David Dykes, Pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler were rescheduled to May 3rd and 4th.
The first event in February packed the worship center at FBC. People in Sulphur Springs know Dr. Dykes. Green Acres is one of the larger Baptist churches in the East Texas area and has a television ministry that reaches this area. For the events in May, addition rooms will be provided at FBC to accomodate the overflow attendance expected.
Don Smith and Wayne Galyean told Enola Gay on KSST’s Morning Show that the event will be a Sunday night and Monday night event. Mike Parks, Minister of Music at Green Acres, will direct the music.
Activities begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, May 2 and Monday, May 3.
