Cove Bible Verse for Week of September 29th

Here is our staff Scripture memorization for this week.

“I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You. And the Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” ~ Job 42:2, 10

Cliff Barrows – Celebrating 25 Years of Ministry at The Cove

Earlier this week we had an amazing time of worship and celebration as we celebrated the goodness of God and the faithfulness of one of His servants, Cliff Barrows.  Mr. Barrows was honored for 25 years of ministry at The Cove.

0039 smThrough laughter and tears, a full auditorium listened as Cliff shared fond memories of his time at The Cove and some of his experiences over the years with the Billy Graham Crusades. Guy Penrod, Tom Bledsoe and Pete Briscoe were all a part of this wonderful celebration.

A special one-of-a-kind bird house replica of Chatlos Memorial Chapel at The Cove (hand-made by Cove employees) was presented to Mr. Barrows and his beautiful wife Ann in recognition of their many years of faithful service. The presentation was made by Will Graham, Executive Director of The Cove and grandson of Billy Graham. Will thanked Mr. Barrows for his ministry and shared his affection for his “Uncle Cliff”.

Cliff later said that he and Ann had decided to place the treasured birdhouse right on their kitchen table where they will be able to enjoy it at all times.

Above all of the festivities, it was the Lord Jesus Christ that was given all of the glory that night and the sweet presence of the Lord was surely in that place.

On behalf of all of us here at The Cove, thank you Mr. and Mrs. Barrows. Thank you for ushering us into the presence of Jesus all of these years. We look forward to creating more memories in the years to come. We love you very much!
