"Seeking to be a bridge of God's love to all people so they may experience His purpose for their lives." I've been preaching that, teaching that & living that for the last 3 years at Ridgeview. I had breakfast this morning sponsored by Child Evangelism Fellowship here in Greenville. They wanted to thank pastors whose churches are sponsoring Good News Clubs in the various public schools. Our church sponsors a club that meets after school on Thursday at Mountain View Elementary. That's where we meet for church on Sunday as well. We've been sponsoring a club now for 3 years. This year our coordinator is Liz Niles. She's doing an excellent job! I got word last week a young boy named Joshua placed his faith and trust in Jesus. I understand he has no church home. I am following up with him. That's a beautiful picture of the church in action. I'm so glad I get to be part of a church like Ridgeview. I thank the Lord everyday!

Glad to hear the great news!

I'm hoping you are the same Tommy Hargrove who attended Winthrop College (University) back in late 80s - early 90s. We sang in the Winthrop Chorale together - ring a bell.

My name is Sam Williams and I live in the York, SC area and work for Bank of America. I am also going back to school, taking classes at Luther Rice Seminary for calling to Children's ministry.

I hope you are the same Tommy hargrove - either way you have a friend in the Upstate who is praying for your church. Great to hear how God is moving!

Thanks for dropping me a line. I really enjoyed my year at Winthrop and especially the Winthrop Chorale. That's awesome to hear your calling to ministry to children. I think it is one of the most important ministries in any church! Blessings to you and keep me posted on how God leads you.
