JOHN FULDA (1931-2019) was considered among the “best song leaders” throughout our brotherhood of acapella Churches of Christ.  He was from Amite, Louisiana and entered glory Tuesday October 8, 2019 suffering from a heart attack.   During the early days of Southeastern Christian College in Winchester, Kentucky, he directed the college choir and did extensive preaching in the surrounding area with some Indiana churches.    I can imagine the SINGING IN HEAVEN today with John doing what came so natural.   He was greatly loved and we thank God for his spiritual gift of ministry through music!  .  A celebration of life service was conducted by Bros. Don McGee and Josh Milliron on Monday, October 14, 2019 at the Amite Church of Christ.  John is survived by his wife of 59 years, Clytae; three daughters; brother George Earl Sr.; step-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews. 

 PCS WHITE ELEPHANT SALE: (Dan Wilson) The overall income from the PCS Fall Fest/White Elephant Sale this year was just over $12,000.  It was a beautiful day and we probably had somewhere between 1,300-1,500 people on campus during the course of the day.

(10TH & 17TH )  Contact PCS if interested at (502) 429-3727 

COMMUNITY CHURCH OF CHRIST (Louisville, Ky.) met “for one more time Sunday October 20, 2019.”  “This past Sunday was a great gathering. I will truly miss filling the pulpit at Community but I know in my heart that this has been a good work for 40 plus years. Many lives have been touched and changed and who knows, there may still be others that it will have had an effect on in the future. Thank you all for opportunity to serve you and again let me remind you that I will be available for any needs that may arise.”  The Community Church of Christ was established December, 1970.  Charter members included Otts, Isons, Kleinhelters, Grunwalds, Harris, Delks.   The church began meeting in Bro. & Sis. Ott’s basement December, 1970.  Later the group rented space in a school, until ground was purchased and building erected in 1975.  Leadership included Henry Ott, minister and Ron Flora (Bev) as associate minister and song leader.  We thank the Lord for Ron & Bev’s faithfulness over the years and ask God to continue to bless them both as they continue to serve him.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
