Bear Creek Church Family,

We want to take this opportunity to thank Bear Creek Church for all you did for our parents and all of us.  Words cannot express how much each of you mean to us.  Continue to remember us in your prayers.

The Alfred & Eula Woody Family 

 

This year is the 10th anniversary of the current building used for Bear Creek Baptist Church worship services.

On Saturday, July 25th, 1959, Alfred and Eula Woody were the first couple to be married in the new Bear Creek Church sanctuary.

Thursday, July 25, 2019 was the 60th anniversary of our parents' wedding.  Bear Creek Church has always been an important part of our family's life for generations.

As Bear Creek Church continues to grow in the work of our Lord, this donation for the Building Fund is given in memory of our parents, Alfred & Eula Woody by their family in honor of their 60th Wedding Anniversary.

The flowers placed in the sanctuary on Sunday were in memory of our parents and are the same color of roses used to celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary.

 

 

A special "Thank You" to the Alfred & Eual Woody family for their donation to the Building Fund in memory of their parents.  Alfred & Eula were always a big part of Bear Creek and their work continues on at Bear Creek Church through their children and grandchildren & spouses.

Dear Church Family,

Thank you all so much for your prayers and concern on our behalf.  They were definitely felt and answered.  The Lord gave such peace and grace through the procedure and it is still ongoing as we await the results of the biopsy.  We are believing all will be well and we eagerly look forward to getting back to seeing what the Lord is going to do among us as we labor together in the days ahead.

We love you all so much,
Preacher Bruce and Wendy
