First Assembly to feature inspirational speaker

A few years ago, Duane Parrish found himself stripped of the ability to read, write or speak, following a major brain operation. Parrish tells how, with God, you are "Destined to Overcome."

Berryville First Assembly of God Pastor Keith Butler invites the community to hear Parrish tell his story of human despair and of divine power, of healing and the power of a grateful spirit.

The positive faith and spiritual insight with which Duane speaks will inspire courage to face life and deal realistically with doubts, fear, conflicts, and obstacles. His inspired story has helped many to believe that, with God, they are "Destined to Overcome."

Parrish will speak at First Assembly of God, U.S. Hwy. 62 East in Berryville, on Sept. 13 at 10:45 .m. and at 6 p.m.

The food pantry, a coordinated effort of six churches in the Eagle Rock and Golden, Mo., areas, is open to all families needing assistance. The churches involved are Roaring River Baptist, Community Lutheran, Golden Church of God, Eagle Rock Community Church, All Faith Methodist and Lighthouse Pentecostal.

The warm weather is showing more needy families need assistance. The pantry's supplies need replenishment with soup, peanut butter, jelly, juice, cans of fruit, canned meat (chicken or salmon), and saltine crackers.

Anyone who picks up one extra item for the pantry can drop food items off at any of the churches listed, at Community Connections Thrift Store, or at the Eagle Rock Library.
