Here are the upcoming events for the Chewelah area for Aug. 18-26, 2016…
Aug. 18 – Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship Meeting
Terry Brown put a pistol in his mouth and pulled the trigger and lives to tell about it
Terry is the Featured Speaker scheduled for the August Meeting of Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship In America. He has a most unusual background. On New Year’s Day, 2003, Terry was following 1st Corinthians 5:5 after years of alcohol abuse when he put a pistol in his mouth and pulled the trigger.
What happened next is for the Spiritual History Books.
This was not the beginning of his story nor the end. He will reveal it all at the August meeting that is scheduled for Thursday, August 18. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at the Steven’s County Ambulance & Training Center located at 425 N Hwy in Colville (by the north traffic circle next to Ronnie D’s).
Both men and women are invited to attend and the meetings are free and open to the public. People with drinking problems are urged to attend this meeting. They do not need to be business owners. Full Gospel, a Christian organization provides spiritual fellowship in a non-church setting.
For more information, contact Stewart Kent at 509-684-6144.
