CLC Opens Its 5th Church Bookstore

Today was an exciting day for our ministry as we saw a long term goal come into reality.  For some time, we have been in discussions with the leadership team at Sharon Baptist Church about partnering together on the re-launch of their church bookstore.  After many months of planning and preparation led by our church store coordinator, Shirley Brockenborough, a dream came true.  What a blessing it was to work with Janice Hipps (the store manager) and her team in putting the finishing touches on the store this past week.  Many CLC team members including Philip Van Veldhuizen, Keith Beale, Davy Montgomery, Charlie Hurd, Kevin Walker, Linda Ridenour and my wife Deb were involved in various aspects of the preparation.  This was truly a team effort on everyone’s part and this store will certainly be a blessing to all who come through it’s doors.  A special thanks also goes to author Patricia Haley who participated in the opening as well.  Here are some pictures from the event:
