New Assembly of God to Locate in Hamilton

leave a comment »


A New Assembly of God Church Coming to Hamilton

Just a brief note from Dr. Johnny Mays. In my autobiography titled, “Leaving Woods Creek” I share the story of my life and relationship to Marion County and Hamilton, Alabama. Many of you have heard my testimony and preaching. Now after forty-five years of Global Ministry, God has called me back to my hometown of Hamilton, Alabama.

I have recently received confirmation from the Assembly of God Headquarters in Montgomery and their Board of Church Planting and Development to partner with me in the launching of an Assembly of God Church here in Hamilton.

My mission is to develop a team of dedicated preachers, teachers, musicians, and singers to minister together in the “Call of God.” Together we will invite the unchurched believers, as well as those people in our area who are living without the influence of a life-giving, gospel-centered church to join our fellowship.

Someone recently has asked me why we need another church, as they say, “We have so many now.” My answer is, “I thank God for every Bible-believing and the Christ-centered church we have. Our new team wants to join their efforts to impact Marion County for eternity through a new Assembly of God Church which will demonstrate their love for God, their love for people and to share their hope found in Jesus Christ.”

The history of the Assembly of God is stellar and to God be the glory. Today there are more than thirteen thousand Assembly of God churches in the United States with more than three million members and adherents. Worldwide, the Assemblies of God has more than sixty-seven million members and is the largest Pentecostal denomination in the world. Truly we are reaching people out of every nation.

There is a reason for our success in touching the world. It is the result of the favor God has given us, for our vision is simple. We are committed to the following core values.

We passionately proclaim, at home and abroad, by word and deed Jesus as Savior, Baptizer in the Holy Spirit, Healer, and Soon Coming King.

We strategically invest in the next generation.

We vigorously plant new churches and revitalize existing ones.

We skillfully resource our Fellowship.

I request all who are Christians to please, fervently pray for God’s favor and His help as we serve Him with pure hearts and noble purpose. If any may be interested in more information call me, Johnny Mays @ (209) 479-2757 or email me @ johnnymays@gmail.com

A Day Honoring Entertainer Pat Buttram

Annual Pat Buttram Day is set for October 13 in Addison, Ala.

Decatur, Ala. – In Addison, Ala., the second Saturday in October is dedicated to one of America’s best-known comic entertainers, Pat Buttram. Best remembered for his role as Mr. Haney on the long-running television series “Green Acres,” Buttram is honored in his hometown of Addison with a day of free family fun, old-fashioned contests, a parade and live music. The 2018 Pat Buttram Day is set for October 13 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sponsored by the Civitan Club, Pat Buttram Day begins at 7:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at the Addison Community Center and Park located on Highway 41, just off of Highway 278.

At 9 a.m., a parade will make its way down on Highway 41 North through the downtown area and back to the Addison Community Center and Park. Entertainment gets underway at 10 a.m. in the park and this year’s lineup includes Chimney Branch, a gospel quartet, Elvis and Willie Nelson impersonators and Danny Frazier. Barbecue plates, hamburgers and hot dogs will be available to purchase for those who missed out on the pancakes.

Throughout the day, family members of Buttram will be on hand sharing stories of the famous actor and Buttram’s western films and various shows will be playing in the Community Center. Mayberry tribute artist Kenneth Junkin of Gordo will be on hand entertaining the crowd with his impersonation of the Otis Campbell character from “The Andy Griffith Show.”

Children will be entertained throughout the day with plenty of fun and games including a bubblegum bubble blowing contest, ring toss, hula-hoop contest, a tricycle race, train rides, inflatables and face painting in a carnival-type atmosphere.
