Southern Baptist Convention

Clarence & Helen Potter

NEWTON COUNTY, GEORGIA

We should serve iced tea and peaches today because we're going to Covington, Georgia, located just off I-20, southeast of Atlanta. Downtown Covington is a pretty town and many movies and TV shows have been taped there. But Covington and surrounding Newton County are also part of the urban growth of Atlanta and, in fact, many new churches are needed to reach the growing population. That's why our church is helping support our missionaries, Clarence and Helen Potter, in Covington. Some of the money our church gives through the Cooperative Program finds its way to Covington, Georgia, and the Potters. They have planted a new church called City of Blessings Church. Starting the new church got a boost when an apartment manager prayed for God's help in organizing a party. A few minutes later Clarence showed up and asked if he could host a block party. Many people who came to that party heard the Good News about the salvation brought by Jesus Christ - and they wanted to know more. The church was off and running! Today let us pray that the Lord will continue to bless Clarence and Helen and their young son as they serve there in Covington. Let's thank the Lord for the new church as it is today and for the strong, growing church it will be tomorrow!
