Glory Sightings: A Banner Day in Perry County

Rev. John Rev. John


The first Sunday in February was a banner day in the Heiberger (Perry County) UMC. This congregation of 70 was poised for what has become an event that is too rare—baptizing a baby.  By the time the service ended they had received 6 new members. There was one adult profession of faith and baptism—the father of the infant.  There was one youth baptism and profession of faith—the infant’s brother. And then, there were four transfers, one of whom was the infant’s mother. The proud pastor, Rev. Jimmy Boone, has pictures he wants to show anybody who will look.
