One of the things I have planned as we travel is to blog about the various churches that we visit. I look forward to the opportunity to see and experience worship in a variety of settings across our country. For now, I’ll place a link here to our home church.

Applewood Baptist


We actively serve in the music ministry and as Sunday School leadership. We’ve been a part of this church for over 30 years! As stated on their website, “We don’t pretend to be perfect and we don’t expect you to be either. We are just flawed people striving to find out more about God and what His plan is for our lives. You don’t have to wait to ‘get your act together’. So just come as you are. You don’t have to do life alone.”

New Century Community Church

I want to give a shout out to my brother, who is pastor of this church. He has been an inspiration to me all my life and a great influence and advisor for me. From their website, “New Century is a Bible-centered church, reaching the Roanoke Valley and beyond with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. New Century is always excited to welcome visitors. At our church you will find Bible-centered teaching, contemporary worship, and casual dress. We will be on mission with God to bring all peoples of the world to saving faith in Jesus Christ.”
