Sunday March 4, 2018 is an exciting and historical day in the life of Forest Grove Baptist. It marks the day of starting fresh with our new Pastor, Pastor Tony Clubb. We hope you will make plans to worship with us.
Pastor Tony and his wife Melanie will begin their ministry here at FGBC 1 March 2018. Please be in earnest prayer for our church, Sunday March 4, and for Brother Tony and family in this time of transition & ongoing ministry.
Pastor Tony is not new to our area as he and Melanie grew up and went to school in the Chiefland and Trenton area. He is a graduate of Lake City Community College, Lake City, and received his Bachelors of Science Degree at the University of Florida. He later attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas and received his Masters of Divinity Degree.
After seminary Brother Tony began his ministry at New Hope Baptist Church in Mayo, Florida serving there for four years. He has continued to serve as Senior Pastor for over 30 plus years at local churches in the area including First Baptist in Williston and just recently First Baptist in Interlachen Florida.
Brother Tony is a conservative Southern Baptist Pastor who believes the Bible is God’s Holy Word. He believes the bible is infallible, inerrant, and truth without any mixture of error. He believes the Bible to be the sole guide and the authority for the Christian life and the Christian Church.
We will have a “Welcome of New Pastor” service on 4 March 2018. A “Meet, Greet and Fellowship luncheon is planned immediately following our morning service. This will be a pot luck type lunch. Please bring enough food for your family in attendance and one other guest. Make plans to attend & join with us as we welcome our new Pastor. Everyone is invited. Watch for details by way of “quikkast” bulletin announcements and by our Facebook page. We hope to see you there.
