Church Plant Needs Chairs
Pastor Victor Smith of Solid Rock Independent Baptist Church, Oklahoma City, Okla. is in need of fifty chairs as he prepares to plant a second church in Oklahoma. Pastor Smith writes, “We are very busy in Oklahoma City, Okla. with church planting and have grown to understand the need for more churches being planting throughout Oklahoma.  I am preparing to start a second church in Muskogee, Oklahoma which is about two hours from me.” Solid Rock Independent Baptist Church entered the GARBC fellowship in church plant status at the association’s June 2012 conference. For more information, contact Pastor Victor Smith, or 405.230.2938.
