It is an honor to announce that the Red Dirt Road Band will be playing at our Inaugural Service on August 17th at 3:00 PM. I got this info about the band from their webpage http://reddirtroadband.blogspot.com/
he members of the Red Dirt Road Band are first and foremost committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. We combine this committment with a love of music in order to share the Gospel with a lost and hurting world. We consider ourselves a fusion of country, southern rock, blues, and classic rock and our musical style resembles such artists as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers Band, and 38 Special. Please keep us in your prayers, check out our UPCOMING EVENTS page, and come out and see us when you can.
Tom Farrier : Bass and Vocals
Rob Sheppard [Inset] : Drums
Roger Holman : Guitar and Vocals
Robert Driskell : Guitar
Red Dirt Road Band Celebrates Life Lived For Jesus Christ.
The members of The Red Dirt Road Band seek to glorify God by using the talents and skills He has given us. We also want to celebrate the life we have in Him and to show others the joy and excitement that comprises a life lived for Jesus. We always want to make our lives about Him and not about us. This means that, as we do our best to represent Him in all we do, we try to make sure that everyone knows that everything we are, everything we have, and everything we do, we owe to God.
Christian artists often wrestle with the tension between drawing attention to themselves and pointing their audience’s attention toward God. We want to do our best; present our best work as we exercise the gifts and talents God has blessed us with, but always point toward the reality of the Gospel. There is often a struggle (aided by the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the Devil, I’m sure) for the musician, artist, writer, etc. to allow pride to creep into his or her thinking. This is something that must be constantly guarded against (“pride comes before the fall” the Bible teaches).
Each member of the Red Dirt Road Band loves music (listening to it and playing it) and, through our music, we want to glorify God and share His love with people. We are aware that pride lurks very near and we must maintain a close, vibrant relationship with our Lord, being constantly led by the Spirit, so that we do not succumb to the lure of fame, fortune, or prestige.
We also try to live personal lives that glorify and honor God. We ask Him to search our hearts and reveal to us any sin or shortcomings that may exist there. We ask Him to cleanse us as we repent and rededicate ourselves to His service. We humbly ask Him to constantly remind us that our main reason for what we do is ministry; we are ministers of reconciliation, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others may be forgiven of their sins and enter a life-giving relationship with God.
If you are in the area I ask that you come out and have a rockin good time at our Inaugural Service, Pastor Ron "Okie" Morrow

I Am a Warrior
I am a warrior in the army of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer.
The Holy Bible is my code of conduct.
Faith, Prayer, and the Word are my weapons of Warfare.
I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity, and tested by fire.
I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity.
I will either retire in this Army or die in this Army;
but, I will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out.
I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable.
If my God needs me, I am there.
I am a warrior. I am not a baby.
I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up,
pumped up, picked up, or pepped up.
I am a warrior. No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me.
I am a warrior. I am not a wimp.
I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders,
praising His name, and building His kingdom!
No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy, or give me handouts.
I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to.
I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around.
I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside.
I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.
When Jesus called me into this Army, I had nothing.
If I end up with nothing, I will still come out even. I will win.
My God will supply all my needs. I am more than a conqueror.
I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ.
Devils cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me.
Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me.
Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me.
Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me!
I am a warrior.
Even death cannot destroy me.
For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield,
He will promote me to a captain.
I am a warrior, in the Army, I’m marching, claiming victory.
I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a warrior, marching Heaven bound.
There are four kinds of soldiers:
Active Duty: Serving the Lord faithfully, daily, and on duty 24-7-365.
Reserve Status: Serving only when called upon, or twice a year: Christmas and Easter.
Guard Status: Backing up the Active Duty group.
AWOL! Absent With Out the Lord.
Which kind are you? Be an army of one for an audience of One.
