The Blessing of Friendships

I am so thankful for the friends that God has put in my life. A true friend is willing to get real with you, and to lift you up when you are down. It’s hard to believe that it was two months ago that my Dad went to Heaven. During this season, I have been so blessed with friends here at C3 and from around the country who walked with me and prayed for me.
One of those good friends is Billy Hornsby. Billy is the Executive Director of the Association of Related Churches and serves on staff at Seacoast Church in Charleston, SC. In the last several years, Billy has become a special friend and partner in ministry. When he heard that my dad had passed away, he got in his car and drove to NC and spent a couple of days with me and preached for me that weekend as well. Thanks Billy and Charlenne!

In just 10 days we are going to have Friend Weekend here at C3! As we invite our friends that weekend, let’s ask God to do something big in their life. I believe it will be one of the most amazing weekends we’ve ever had here at C3!

    I feel blessed to have spoken to Pastor Billy a couple of times. He is the “real deal”. Can’t wait for “Friend Weekend”. It is always a very special weekend. Praying that this is the year my brother comes.
