PURSLEY, WV We are entering our ninth month with the church in this community and things have never been more promising. On August 25 Pursley hosted its first Friday Night Sing and it was an overwhelming night. 198 people attended and we were blessed with 28 song leaders. Our building only seats about 85 people, so you can imagine what it was like. We had erected tents and had a public address system for the outdoors. Refreshments were served on the lawn following the singing. Pursley members and several neighbors worked hard to prepare for what we knew would be a great evening. It surpassed our greatest dreams. We thank those who came from far and near to support our efforts. When we began our work here, our Sunday morning attendance was averaging about 15-20. At present we are having between 50 and 60 on an average. Seven have been baptized and others are being taught. If you have family and friends in our area that you would like us to visit and encourage, please contact us and we'll do our best to help. Call 304 652-1194 or 304 210-4046.
