Gorgeous #FALLweather for a picnic


It is a GORGEOUS #Fall day and it occurred to me that after working at First Baptist Church of Eupora for a little over five years, that I have never enjoyed a picnic outside. Since I can’t drive myself and the shoulder for a few weeks, I am stranded here at lunch. Pepper bought a sandwich from Subway this morning, and for the first time in five years, I sat on the steps and enjoyed the sounds and sights and sun and wind of this Fall day. I was a little frazzled from too much activity this morning (it happens sometimes) so initially, I thought I would unplug, but I love taking a few photos and I couldn’t resist a few snaps of the roses and the architecture, the water falling and the wind whipping the flags. I hope y’all enjoy the short videos and photos of the sounds and sights of lunch today. I know it is silly, but I LOVED it! I hope you enjoy! Continue reading

A HISTORY OF FAITH: FBC Eupora has a rich history


First Baptist Church of Eupora has ministered to the community for 125 years and is still going strong.

The congregation of First Baptist Church in Eupora was formed in 1890, but this building was constructed in 1949, with additions and renovations over the years.

The stain glass is the focal point of the sanctuary with windows depicts the key elements of Jesus Christ’s ministry on earth over 2,000 years ago. The scenes above depict the Transfiguration, the Last Supper, Christ’s death on the cross and the resurrected Christ in the garden.
