Calvary Baptist Church, Connersville, IN. Alan Harris Family

 Alan and Alex Harris at Calvary. 
 Yes this is us at Calvary Baptist some 34 years later. I was 31 when I was in Calvary. 
 When Charity and I were in Calvary Baptist this was what we called the Youth Dome.  We had the Senior High class here.  I wished I had been taking photo then.  We had a great group of workers in our class. I do have some photo that I need to see if I can put on this site.
 Calvary did not look like this when I was there.
 The founder of Calvary Baptist Church.  Bro Herb was in my Dad's church in Roanoke Virginia before he went to seminary in Fort Worth Tx.

 Charity and I went to Connersville, IN for the Alan Harris 30th year in Ministry back in July 2012.
Alan Harris was a member of the Calvary, so was his Mom and Dad, who are great Christian folks.

Back in 1978 we were the Youth Pastor, Children's Director and Bus Director.  We started the Children's Ministry and had a great time with the kids.  We had a very good youth ministry, well I though so.  We had a great youth staff, so of the best I have every worked with.  The McMillians were one of the couple who was so good.  And they are still in the church and still serving the Lord.
Oh Charity and Becky were at Calvary too. Becky was four years old when we were there.

Back in the 1980's Bob Temple bought all this land. 
Then he sold several lots, now there are eight  homes.
Bob rebuild this house to live.  Bob remarried and moved to Arlington Texas.
Bob then decided to graciously give the land to his girls. Now Debbie lives in Bob's house, and we are now living in the house that Debbie lived in.
