The church in the middle of the cornfield. That’s how Kaye Bennett, Fresh Grounded Faith Georgetown’s Local Conference Coordinator, described her church when we first scheduled FGF. But, now that I’m home from such an amazing weekend, I call it “the church in the middle of God’s will.”

The conference sold out, and that was during the coronavirus! We gathered socially distanced but totally connected in spirit. We worshipped together both on-site and online as Michael O’Brien lead us. Oh, girl, when he busted out his 70’s medley, even the young women in that place sang out with vintage Andraé Crouch tunes!
Fresh Grounded Faith Kokomo was like instant family!

There was such a welcoming spirit in the church building when we arrived. I could feel it! You know, there’s a difference between being kind and being welcoming. There’s a difference between cordiality and hospitality. And, these ladies in Kokomo were welcoming and hospitable—like family from the word hello!
Girl, I’ve got Georgia on my mind! It was wonderful being back in Augusta last weekend for another Fresh Grounded Faith event. I’m telling you, these southern sisters were on fire for the second year in a row!
This 1919 landmark was erected to show appreciation to the boll weevil. But you might be surprised to hear why! You see, this beetle—who likes to feast on cotton buds and flowers—had actually destroyed the people of Enterprise’s crops. But, this community didn’t give up!
